Chloe Sevigny jumped at the chance to design her own perfume after her favourite scent was discontinued.

The 45-year-old began wearing Rose by Commes de Garcons when it was first released back in 2001, but when it was discontinued, Chloe searched high and low for all the remaining bottles.

"I literally had a panic attack, I had to find it on eBay and I collected as many bottles as I could. Everyone recognised me by that scent," she told Elle UK magazine.

When she was offered the opportunity to create her own scent with friends and perfumers Alia Raza and Ezra Woods of Regime des Fleurs, she wanted to recreate her signature Commes de Garcons fragrance.

Named Little Flower, it features notes of rose, black pepper, blackcurrant and palo santo, and Chloe douses herself in the perfume.

"I usually apply when my skin is still a little moist out of the shower. Apparently if you apply creams and perfumes when you’re still a little damp they penetrate better. I do three squirts around my neck, two on my wrists, then I get dressed and I do another four spritzes, because I like it also to stay on my clothes. I feel like fragrance stays better on clothing and in dry hair," she explained.

Elsewhere in the interview, The Dead Don't Die star revealed she shops for her beauty products at health food stores.

"They carry reliable brands like Dr Hauschka and Weleda, but it depends on what I’m looking for," she shared, noting that she's a huge fan of the Japanese brand Tatcha. “I use their face wash, the rice polishing powder, the moisturiser, and the dewy mist that sets your make-up and makes it look less powdery – it’s all very luxurious."
