    This month we’re celebrating the special men in our life. Our #HeSmellsGood campaign promises to inspire you when it comes to buying your other half the ultimate gift this Christmas.

    We kicked-off our month-long male love-in with an interview with Hollywood A-Lister Colin Farrell and a mega fragrance giveaway.

    Now we’re wondering, just what does it take to be a Calvin Klein model? Model Tobias Sorensen knows all about it. He stars in the new campaign for Calvin Klein Eternity Now alongside real-life girlfriend Jasmine Tookes. If you haven’t checked out the campaign, do so – but be warned, it’s pretty steamy.

    Here’s the man himself talking fragrance, beard maintenance and the secret to taking the perfect selfie.

    I like to wear scents that are very ‘masculine’ and with some sex appeal. My family had a house in Sweden in the middle of the woods; literally in the middle of nowhere. I spent lots of weekends and every summer there. I remember waking up every morning and smelling a very strong scent of grass and wood. I’ve found those notes in Calvin Klein Eternity Now for men, £68 for 100ml edp. There’s cedar wood, tonka bean and cedar leaf. That’s something that I personally find very masculine.

    During my time as a model I’ve learned to always keep my hair cut fresh. A good cut keeps you looking very well groomed which is how I like to look. 

    My skincare regime is quite simple. I always wash my face morning and night. At night I like to use products containing vitamin E and C on my face because they keep my skin moisturised and my pores tight. I tend to take care of my skin at home. I don’t like to get facials that often because I like to keep things simple and natural. 

    I like to keep my beard trimmed and neat. I have a trick where I run a clear gel though my beard with a clean mascara wand, it make the hairs lay neatly. When it comes to my hair I like to use Pomades, I’m not loyal to a particular brand, I like to mix it up and use different products.

    I’m really into working out and keeping fit. I go to the gym a lot and I love to swim. I try to maintain a healthy lifestyle all year round and when I’m in New York I like to get acai bowls and smoothies from a juicery in Chelsea called Liquiteria.

    The key to taking the perfect selfie? Good lighting!
