“Beautiful coffee, beautiful view, this is just Paris… ah, Paris,” Robert Pattinson says with a giggle, as he peers out the window of the storied Le Bristol hotel. The much-anticipated new Batman is in the City of Light to attend Dior’s Fall 2020 menswear show—and is stopping to smell the house’s new fragrance along the way.
“It’s interesting to look at a culture changing and people changing and try to imagine what scent they would like… I would not know what smell anybody would like,” Pattinson says, while in conversation with François Demachy, the nose behind the latest Dior Homme Eau de Toilette, which comes with zesty hints of orange and lemon, as well as cedar. “It’s very familiar,” he adds of the woody note, the corners of his mouth turning upwards. “I did use to eat my pencils all the time.”
One spritz and car ride later, Pattinson is sitting front row alongside Adwoa Aboah before heading off to the fashion week-favorite Caviar Kaspia to rub shoulders with Cara Delevingne and the man of the hour, Kim Jones. All in a day’s work for the superstar.
