Dylan McDermott: 'Dolly Parton wears seven different perfumes'

Dolly Parton

Dylan McDermott was amazed by Dolly Parton's signature scent when they worked together on Steel Magnolias.

During a recent appearance on TV show Watch What Happens Live, host Andy Cohen asked the actor what he remembers most about his time alongside the country music superstar on the set of the 1989 drama.

In response, Dylan explained that he has never met anyone who uses perfume like Dolly.

"You know, you can't believe the way Dolly Parton smells," he smiled. "She mixes like seven different perfumes. So, each and every time you walk into the room, at least I did, I almost fainted."

Andy then asked if Dolly wears "too much" fragrance, to which the 57-year-old insisted, "No, no, no, no. It smells that good."

Meanwhile, fellow talk show guest Brooke Shields backed up Dylan's opinion.

"It's the perfect combination. It makes your mouth water," she shared.

While Dolly often speaks about her unconventional skincare regime, it's not known what fragrances she wears.

Yet, in the past, she was reported to be a fan of Gendarme fragrances and Mary Kay's Intrigue, though the latter is now discontinued.

And in her 2012 book Dream More: Celebrate the Dreamer in You, Dolly divulged that she used all sorts of alternative products as make-up growing up.

"Until I was a teenager, I used red pokeberries for lipstick and a burnt matchstick for eyeliner. I used honeysuckle for perfume. We were raised in the Pentecostal Church of God and they believed that wearing make-up was sinful. My grandpa Jake, my mama's dad, was a preacher. So, I had to sneak around and make myself look all pretty but then wash it off before they caught me," the 73-year-old wrote.
