Rachel McAdams: 'Everyone Says I Smell Like A Dirty Hippie' (VIDEO)

If we could pick any scent for Rachel McAdams, the last thing we would think of is "dirty hippie," but that's exactly what "The Notebook" star says she smells like.

In a new behind-the-scenes video for her Allure cover shoot, the Canadian actress admits that her signature scent is patchouli.

"My favourite signature scent is to smell like a dirty hippie," the 35-year-old told Allure. "I love patchouli. Everyone says I smell like a dirty hippie but I'm ok with that."

One thing's for sure: Ryan Gosling's ex doesn't look like a so-called "dirty hippie"! For the Allure cover photo, the "Midnight in Paris" star went makeup free and looked gorgeous, natch.

Going sans makeup is something the blond beauty is becoming increasingly comfortable with.

"I think I wear less makeup than I used to," she said. "Less feels like more now."

The "About Time" actress is also figuring out her personal style, which has gone from wacky and casual to glamorous and sophisticated.

"I would say my look has changed in that I sort of understand a little better what works on me and what doesn't," Rachel said. "What I should wear and what I shouldn't so I guess I've learned to wear things that accentuate my curves."

Rach, you're looking good, girl!
