Keira Knightley: Perfume is sexy

Keira Knightley thinks men can fall in love because of a scent.

The British actress is the face of Chanel's perfume Coco Mademoiselle, after being named the celebrity ambassador in 2006.

Keira thinks someone's smell is important when it comes to attracting the opposite sex.

"Good question. I don't know. I guess you would have to ask one," she mused when asked if men can fall in love because of a scent.

"Although I had a friend who went on a date with a girl and said he hated the smell of her perfume, so he didn't ask her out again. So perhaps it's true."

Keira dabs perfume behind her knee in the perfume advert. The 26-year-old beauty wouldn't necessarily put her fragrance on that particular body part, and says the unusual application was down to an idea from the director Joe Wright.

"Oh, that was a Joe thing," she revealed to Marie Claire magazine.

"I never put it behind the knee. I'm a wrist and neck sort of girl. If you're spending a lot of time on your knees then maybe you need a bit of help."
