The actor and face of Joy, the newest fragrance from Dior, keeps it low-maintenance
FRAGRANCE FAMILY LEGACY: “The scent my mom always wore was Miss Dior.that was my first smell of perfume, so Dior has been in my nostrils since I was a child. And it’s so weird that I have my own fragrance now!”
CREATIVE VISION: “About eight months ago or so, I went to Paris to visit the laboratory with François [Demachy, Dior’s perfumer-creator]. He had been carrying around the scent for about a year and adding to it. So I got to smell all the different ingredients, and it was just such a cool experience. I had no idea what went into making a perfume. It’s also fascinating how one note will smell one way, and then when you pair it with another it smells completely different.” SIGNATURE SCENT: “I like that Joy is not too strong; it’s very airy. It’s floral with a hint of sandalwood, and I think it’s modern but classic. It just seems to be kind of open and not overwhelming, which is the number-one thing I don’t like about perfumes.”
BROW MUST: “My grandma told me I need to pay closer attention to my eyebrows at one point, so I now do.” FRESH-FACED: “If I don’t have an event, I normally don’t wear makeup. Since I often get it done professionally, I’m probably better off staying away from my face. I have learnt nothing from the pros — ha!”
SKIN & HAIR SMOOTH MOVE: “I exfoliate every night, and it really doesn’t matter what I use. You can kind of use anything grainy, so I change it up.” LESS IS MORE: “I have really dry skin, so I use night cream, and I always do this very thick mask. I can’t remember the name of the brand, but it doesn’t smell very good!” SKINCARE PHILOSOPHY: “I think it’s important to change up facial products, but I do use retinol under my night cream every night. It says not to use it every night, but I always say, ‘Fuck it.’” SPF: “During the day, I use sunblock. It doesn’t matter what, but I always make sure it has zinc in it.” EXPERT OPINION: “My facialist is Georgia Louise in New York. I normally just defer to her on everything.” TEXTURE: “I’m so bad with hair! I have naturally curly hair, so of course I hate when it’s curly. I prefer to blow it out straight.” HAIRSTYLE: “Riawna Capri [at Nine Zero One in LA] did my current cut. I like it to look choppy and uneven.”
DIET & FITNESS MORNING ROUTINE: “Coffee. Then I brush my teeth. Sunblock. Then put on concealer.take my dog [Pippi] to the park. Shower. And then I just putter around, really. I watch CNN and yell at the news. I wish so badly that they could hear me.” SIMPLE LIFE: “I really wish I was better about health. I don’t take vitamins, and I eat like an 11-year-old orphan. But I exercise! I do Pilates and I run.” PUPPY LOVE: “Pippi gets an oatmeal bath about once every three weeks.and she gets more exercise than Mom.” – As told to Erin Flaherty
