Penelope Cruz Switches Scents for Each Role


While it’s recommended you switch scents depending on the season or time of day, Penelope Cruz takes it to the next level.

The January 2014 Allure cover girl revealed that she changes her fragrance for every character she plays. We can just imagine her wearing Acqua di Gioia during her romp with Jack Sparrow in Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides or Hypnotic Poison for her Academy Award-winning role in Vicky Cristina Barcelona.

So what scent does she turn to when she wants to be herself again? Trésor, of course! “I have used it since I was 13, and now I'm the spokesperson for it,” Lancôme’s leading lady told the glossy. “I love it. It's been the fragrance that I've used the most in my life. I have so many memories related to this scent.”

Hmm, maybe we could do the same thing: one for day, one for dates, one for a girl's night out, one for weekend brunches. Do you switch up your scent for different settings?
