Matthew McConaughey enjoys festive fragrances

Oscar-winning actor Matthew McConaughey is a fan of “sophisticated” fragrances which exude masculinity.

Matthew McConaughey’s favourite festive scents are pine and chicory.

The Oscar-winning actor is the fragrance ambassador for Dolce & Gabbana The One for Men, and loves nothing more than a pleasing aroma. Around the holiday season, Matthew fills his home with things he thinks sum up the true smell of Christmas – and will prepare him for the year to come.

“We get enough pine and pine cones and chicory and that’s it as far as scents go at Christmas,” he told Britain’s Hello! magazine. “I want something that get me excited about going into the New Year.”

When asked to name the odour which conjures up the best memories for him, Matthew was transported back to his childhood. The Texas-born heartthrob singled out the natural smell of flowers wafting around his neighbourhood as his top sniff.

“Back in south Texas were we lived, there was a lot of honeysuckle,” he recalled. “The smell of those when they come out in spring.”

The 46-year-old star finds himself drawn to simple, manly aromas, which is why he is such a big fan of The One fragrance.

“I like the scent of the men’s cologne because its masculine, yet still sophisticated,” Matthew said. “I like it because it’s classic, yet it still feels young.”

Matthew worked alongside Scarlett Johansson for the fragrance campaign, and is full of praise for the Hollywood star. He enjoys taking time to catch up with her whenever their paths meet on the red carpet circuit.

“Scarlett’s great,” he smiled. "We actually ran into each other the night before at the Oscars earlier this year and got to catch up for about 30 minutes. It was good to work with her again.”
