“Alien by Thierry Mugler was one of [the perfumes] used,” she told Harper’s Bazaar UK. “The first one, I’d come onto set in the morning and I’d spray myself with an incredibly oud-y, dark leathery scent and I’d wear that in the make-up chair, which as you can imagine was quite a long process. When I would come back into my trailer, I’d get into my clothes as Amy and put on my perfume as Amy. And that was Alien.”
