Whether Alexander Skarsgard is wearing a viking outfit or his birthday suit, he looks amazing. But for him, attraction isn’t all about looks.

Even though he’s the new face for the Encounter by Calvin Klein fragrance campaign, when it comes to scents, he prefers to go au naturale.

“We all have an individual scent that’s like a fingerprint of who we are. I find that very sexy and very attractive. You want to enhance what you got,” Alex told Refinery29. “There’s an interesting marriage between your perfume and your own tone and scent. When you combine those, that’s when you get something very interesting and seductive and sensual.”

And even if he wasn’t the face of Encounter, he appreciates the “seductive and sensual, woodsy and dark,” scent. In fact, instead of the “sporty citrusy tones” that most men reach for, he prefers something with “depth and darkness.” Fifty shades of A. Skars, anyone?

He and his True Blood character, Eric Northman, are on the same page about scents, too.

"If he wore a scent, this would probably be it. It has that depth: that darkness, those earthy tones. This would definitely be something for him,” he spilled, but also pointed out that Eric probably doesn’t reach for artificial colognes — he goes for the real deal.

“I don’t think he wears scents though — it’s more like a drop of faerie blood behind his ears,” he said. “That’s more his thing."
