Sniff This: Downtown Calvin Klein Eau de Parfum Spray ($102 for 90mL)
In the moody black-and-white campaign for Downtown Calvin Klein (shot by director David Fincher), Rooney Mara plays an actress seeking balance between everyday life and the one in front of the cameras. Though the concept certainly sounds like art imitating life, Mara says it’s simply not the case.
“I can’t relate to that very much,” she admits. “I’m not recognized very often at all, so that part [of fame] rarely affects my life.” The enigmatic actress, best known for her work in The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo and The Social Network, radiates independence and embodies nonchalant cool—making her a fitting choice as the face of a modern floral perfume with youthful notes of gardenia petals, pink peppercorn, Texan cedarwood, violet leaf, fresh green pear and Tunisian neroli.
