That's kinda, er, unusual

Margot Robbie switches up her scents on set because they help her get into character.

The 29-year-old has played a diverse range of characters, from DC Comics' Harley Quinn in Suicide Squad, to tragic actress Sharon Tate in Quentin Tarantino's Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.

And speaking to Australia's Sunday Life magazine, the actress revealed perfumes have become an important part of her preparation before she takes on a new role.

"I pick a fragrance for every character I play," she shared. "When I go on set and apply the fragrance, I find it's easier to get into character.

"It's a very powerful tool!" the I, Tonya star added.

She explained the unusual method works because "certain smells can transport you to a time and place, or create a specific feeling".

Margot has been a fragrance ambassador for French fashion house Chanel since 2018, and fronts its campaign for Gabrielle Chanel Essence - named after label founder Coco Chanel, real name Gabrielle Bonheur Chanel.
