Style Up Your Life has some QandA's we've already read from Faces and Grazia Spain.
but anyway, here comes the translation...
Since his role in the vampire saga Twilight, RobertPattinson is part of Hollywood’s A-list of actors.Therefore it is hardly surprising that he was chosen to be the new face of Dior Homme. STYLE UP YOUR LIFE! met with the trendy film star for an interview.
Smells often trigger memories of certain things.What do you associate with certain smells?I remember very clearly that my father always used to wear „Brut de Faberge“. Do you remember that fragrance? He still owns it today and it reminds me of my early time at school. It‘s anchored very deeply in my memory and to this day I remember exactly how it smells. When I started getting interested in girls (at about age 12), I decided it was cool to wear perfume. On a holiday in Portugal I watched some teenagers go in to a bar. To convince them I was older, I put on some Eau de Cologne (laughs).
Are there landscapes or towns you associate with certain smells?My father is from Yorkshire, where you get a lot of heather in the moors. That smell is simply unbelievable.We used to go there at Christmas and although I haven‘t been there for a long time, I still remember that smell.
Do you have a favorite smell? It doesn’t necessarily have to be a perfume. I like the smell of people! (laughs) It is really strange andI‘m sure it has to do with pheromones. We like people because subconsciously we like the way they smell. I always find this very interesting to observe.
You are 27 years old. Do you wear perfume to feel comfortable or to seduce?It still feels like something very grown up. If you use perfume when going out, you‘re going out for a very specific reason (smiles).
Which woman could wear Dior Homme in your opinion?A free thinker! A headstrong woman who refuses to smell „pretty“. She never does exactly what you would expect of her. It certainly would be a woman with a very specific image of femininity.
Do London (where you have lived), New York (where you shot the campaign) and Paris (home of Dior) have their own smell?
Apart from my family I miss the smell of London after it rained the most. The airports Heathrow and Gatwick are surrounded by fields. When you land there you immediately smell wet grass and it really always rains when I land there. New York is totally different. For me the town smells of food, because it’s available at every corner. Strangely enough I never associate France with food although it is a large part of the French culture. It’s more of a visual thing, a certain feeling. Paris IS a feeling. To describe Paris is a bit like describing Dior. It’s a very different world. I really love strolling freely through a town in which films are still respected as an art form.
