Evan Rachel Wood: 'I feel naked without perfume'

Evan Rachel Wood enjoys making her own face masks while watching re-runs of Friends.

Actress Evan Rachel Wood loves having a signature scent.

The 28-year-old has featured as the face of Gucci Guilty for a number of years, and has a certain way she likes to apply her chosen perfume to make sure it lasts as long as possible, in every sense of the word.

"I think it’s good to put it on bare skin when your pores are still open (like after the shower), so it’s on your clothes, but it’s also (still there) if clothes aren’t in the equation," she told the American edition of Vogue. "I think the senses ignite imagination. It can help make memories - you leave your mark with someone a little more prominently when you have a signature scent."

Evan is of course loyal to her brand, and loves how the scent has evolved into a "more romantic scent - ethereal and soft and sexy", insisting she feels naked if she leaves home without a spritz.

Aside from perfume, Evan opened up to the outlet about her beauty regime, revealing how much she enjoys making her own face masks while watching the sitcom Friends when she has some down time.

"Manuka honey is really amazing for sensitive, acne-prone skin," she continued. "I put it all over my face with cinnamon—that gives it a more pasty quality. You look like you just stuck your head in chocolate pudding."

As the face of a brand as well as an actress, it's essential for Evan to look after her skin, but its not a straightforward process.

"I have to change up my routine every year because my skin gets used to it," she confessed. "I will find a miracle product for a while, and then my skin adapts and it won’t work anymore. (Right now) I wear La Roche-Posay (Anthelios) SPF 60 every day, and I always use St. Ives collagen-booster moisturiser. It smells great, and it helps your skin not lose elasticity."
