London, March 23 (IANS) Actress Keira Knightley says she preferred wearing masculine fragrance before discovering Coco Mademoiselle from Chanel.
“Before Coco Mademoiselle I wore men’s fragrances. I didn’t want something light and flowery – I’m not that kind of girl,” she said. “One of the things I love about it is that although it’s extremely feminine, it gives me this feeling of power.”
The 25-year-old actress is the face of Chanel’s Coco Mademoiselle perfume and has shot a raunchy commercial for it, directed by Joe Wright. Knightley admits the advertisement made her feel like a “superwoman”, reports femalefirst.co.uk.
“It’s the first perfume I tried and thought, ‘Yes, that fits.’ It’s the mixture of strength and subtlety. It doesn’t overpower but it makes you feel you can stand up straight and that’s important to me,” Knightley told Daily Record newspaper.
