Looking at True Blood star Alexander Skarsgard, you would never guess that he went through an awkward stage.

The Swedish babe is a smooth-talking, sharp-dressing man now, but back in middle school, he repulsed women so much that they ran away from him!

“Once before a dance, I made the mistake of taking a bath in a mix of Fahrenheit and Davidoff Cool Water,” A. Skars spilled to InStyle. “The girls stood 50 feet away from me all night.”

We find that hard to believe looking at him, but nowadays, he can’t not smell good — he’s the new face of Calvin Klein’s new men’s fragrance, Encounter!

You can check out the rest of Alex’s scent memories — including sausage, cigars, and the fake blood on True Blood’s set — in the September 2012 issue of InStyle, on newsstands now.
