Harper’s Bazaar (Malaysia) - - Beauty -

I re­mem­ber putting on my fa­ther’s cologne when I was 14 or 15 and feel­ing so grown-up. I was way too stupid to know that less is more – I dabbed on half the bot­tle! Are you a Hugo Boss man? I wouldn’t align my­self with Boss if I didn’t iden­tify my­self in their mod­ern man motto, which to me is self­con­fi­dence and pre­pared­ness. I find that it is some­what neb­u­lous these days. I hope to shed more light on this, and I be­lieve scent plays a very im­por­tant role in that. Favourite notes from the fra­grances? The woody tone works for me. I come from Bri­tish Columbia, Canada, and it has one of the largest forests in the world. One of my fond­est mem­o­ries is the trees. There is some­thing so clean and crisp about that, which is per­fectly em­bod­ied in the Boss fra­grances. The ac­tor talks scents. How does a fa­mous face go about with gift-shop­ping? I do my shop­ping in New York most of the time but I also find on­line shop­ping help­ful. What makes an ideal gift? I’ve given my broth­ers Hugo Boss per­fumes, which have be­come their sig­na­ture. We live in the coun­try and they like to work on cars and ma­chines, so tools are good, too. Did you have a sig­na­ture scent as a teen? Hugo Boss Bot­tled Night EDT, RM291 (100ml)
