Margot Robbie finds that living in London is good for her skin because she isn’t exposed to the sun as much.

Margot Robbie picks a specific perfume for each character she plays.

The Australian actress is one of the busiest stars in Hollywood at the moment, recently portraying Jane in The Legend of Tarzan and Harley Quinn in Suicide Squad.

Margot, 26, is also the face of Calvin Klein’s Deep Euphoria fragrance campaign, a role which she delights in as she’s always had a deep affinity for perfumes. In fact, even now the blonde star likes to incorporate scent into her character work.

“For Tarzan, when I played Jane, I wore pure rose oil because it felt delicate and earthy to suit the character. And when I played Harley, I picked something kind of tacky and sickly sweet, just a bit overbearing and in your face; I bought it from a strip mall in America,” she told Vogue.com.

“In the film I did before this one, Terminal, I was playing a femme fatale, this kind of dangerous, quirky, complicated woman, and as we did the shoot for the (Deep Euphoria) campaign, I was like, ‘Wow, this perfume is perfect for that’.”

Among Margot’s favourite scents are lavender and jasmine, which she grew at her childhood home, and the perfumes her mother and aunt wore. She also claims that a lot of women in her family wear Calvin Klein perfumes and the scents were “dotted” through her youth.

Margot has long left the sunny skies and beaches of Queensland behind her, choosing to base herself in London. And she’s noticed the change in climate has impacted her skin in a good way.

“At this age—I’m 26 now—sun damage is becoming so evident, and as you start worrying about getting wrinkles and sunspots, I’m really grateful I’m on the other side of the world,” she shared.
