Robert Pattinson Smells Like Crayons (And All The Things Other Celebs Smell Like)

Because we know you're dying to... nose.

During an interview with Allure, former vampire and wizard Robert Pattinson dished out a bizarre little nugget of information that we truly weren't expecting today -- that he apparently smells like crayons (but what colour??).

"Lots of people tell me I smell like a crayon," the actor told the publication nonchalantly when asked how he would describe his scent.

"Like I'm embalmed," he added.

Now, you may wonder how a human being manages to smell like a stick of wax... Well, it turns out that crayons contain something called "stearic acid", which is a derivative of beef tallow -- more commonly known as beef fat -- and it's what gives each crayon its waxy consistency.

Anyway, deep-diving into the strange world of unique celebrity smells, we've rounded up a bunch of stars along with their various scents -- some we expected, and some... not so much.

In an interview with Q4 Music, Lil Nas X was asked what his favourite smell was, to which he responded, "Rihanna." When asked what she smelled like, he said, "She smells like heaven".

Post Malone smells like... A normal person

Despite hoaxes about his smell doing the rounds -- like that his manager quit because he smelled like "expired milk and mouldy cheese" -- Post Malone insists that he smells like the rest of us.

"I smell good. I smell like a normal person," he wrote on a Facebook thread while participating in GQ's "Actually Me" video series. "But I don't smell bad, that's a common misconception. And I did a poll with people around town and the consensus is that I don't smell."

Russell Brand smells like... Musk

According to Courtney Love, Brand's scent leaves much to be desired.

"He is a little musky," she revealed. "We did yoga together and the musk was there.”

Paul Rudd smells like... Sweet citrus

Steve Carrell got strangely detailed about describing the scent of the ageless Paul Rudd back in 2010.

"It’s a sweet citrus, but it changes during the day," he told Entertainment Weekly. "I think in the morning… It’s very sweet and citrusy in the morning. It mellows by the afternoon into…more of a burnt, woody -- no, I shouldn’t say that." Right.

Emma Stone smells like... Weed

Well, according to her anyway...

"The weird thing is, I think there’s something off about my pH because things smell totally different on me," she told Allure in 2012.

"When you stay at a Four Seasons hotel they have all this Bvlgari stuff and if I use it, I smell like pot the rest of the day. It makes no sense. It mixes with my chemistry and I just smell like I have clam-baked all day.”
