To men interested in courting the recently-single Emily Ratajkowski: Don’t wear cologne.
The supermodel and My Body author may be the face of Viktor and Rolf’s new Flowerbomb fragrance, but when it comes to men’s scents, she prefers something more natural.
“Oh my god. Men. I really don’t like scent on men,” Ratajkowski said in a recent People interview, adding that men’s penchant for excessive application can create an overpowering aura.
“I like them to smell like themselves,” she continued. “I say that and maybe I’ll live to regret it, but I like the smell. I like pheromones. I like getting a sense of somebody based on their smell.”
As the New York Post points out, Ratajkowski has been seen with a number of potential suitors since filing for divorce from Uncut Gems producer Sebastian Bear-McClard, including artist Jack Greer, Seagram heir Eli Bronfman, DJ Orazio Rispo, and Saturday Night Live alum Pete Davidson.
But her latest interest is rumored to be Eric Andre, the comedian and host of Adult Swim’s The Eric Andre Show. Recent evidence supporting the couple’s supposed relationship came in the form of heart-eyed Instagram comment left by Andre on a batch of Ratajkowski snaps, in which she donned a daring white top without a bra.
While Andre may want to avoid exogenous scents, it’s not too late for the rest of us to pick up a bottle of these great winter colognes.
