THE RAPTURE

Margot Rob­bie’s dreamy new col­lab.

Elle (Canada) - - Beauty -

i’m in a plush New York ho­tel suite with Margot Rob­bie, and we’re sup­posed to be dis­cussing her role as the face of Calvin Klein’s new per­fume, Deep Eu­pho­ria. But we’ve got­ten a bit side­tracked. It’s my fault: I men­tioned that ELLE Canada is based in Toronto, where she filmed the block­buster Sui­cide Squad. “I love Toronto more than any­thing! I want to move there,” says the Aus­tralian ac­tress, list­ing her favourite restau­rants. (Among them? The Black Hoof, Pa­tois and DaiLo.) “Toronto is so cool that it doesn’t even need to boast about how cool it is. It’s like, ‘I’m just go­ing to let you wait and find out how awe­some I am.’”

Kind of like Rob­bie her­self, who is so un­af­fected it’s al­most dis­arm­ing. She signed on to rep­re­sent Deep Eu­pho­ria be­cause of the brand’s sto­ried fash­ion-and-beauty pedi­gree, but she ad­mits that a cer­tain ’90s cam­paign star­ring Marky Mark may have helped seal the deal. “The Kate Moss and Mark Wahlberg cam­paign I will re­mem­ber for­ever,” she says.

A chypre flo­ral, Deep Eu­pho­ria is more sen­sual and moody than its older sib­ling Eu­pho­ria. The per­fume opens with notes of white pep­per and man­darin, has black-magic rose at the heart and dries down into a musky wood. “It’s a to­tally new and mod­ern fra­grance for a new gen­er­a­tion,” says per­fumer Honorine Blanc, who has cre­ated dozens of lux­ury fra­grances, in­clud­ing Calvin Klein En­counter. “I wanted to cre­ate a fra­grance that arouses you when you smell it; it makes you feel some­thing.”

For Rob­bie, that “some­thing” is de­li­cious ful­fill­ment. “Grow­ing up, I could never af­ford to have a per­fume, so I’d save it and only use it for the most spe­cial of spe­cial oc­ca­sions,” she says. “I haven’t bought any­thing crazy [since be­com­ing an ac­tress]. My in­dul­gence is that I wear per­fume ev­ery day. I will wear it to bed if I want to!” carli whitwell h
