With Halloween just about a month away, there’s no doubt that one of the hottest costumes this year is going to be the most badass babe of the summer, Suicide Squad’s Harley Quinn. Maybe you’ve already got your short shorts, fishnets, and pink and blue hair chalk, so you’re wondering what perfume could possibly be fitting of such a lady, in order to bring her look to full and proper justice?
Fear not, because Margot Robbie has just dished on Harley’s signature scent, and it’s something you can get at your local drugstore on the cheap… seriously. As the new spokesperson for Calvin Klein’s Deep Euphoria fragrance, Margot sat down with ELLE to chat about the importance of perfume, and she didn’t hold back about the two scents of choice when in character as Harley Quinn.
Margot confirmed that she uses perfume to get into the head of the characters she plays, saying,
“I’ve never met another actor who does it, but for me, it’s really helpful! I remember specific times and people in my life so much more clearly if I smell something that brings me back to them. So scent has become a way for me to differentiate characters.”
As for the signature scent she felt best fit the sexy, yet psychotic Harley?
“Oh yeah. I bought her perfume in a strip mall drugstore. It’s a super tacky cheap brand. The packaging is a skull. It’s perfect. Then I got a Playboy perfume, too, so she has one when she’s Harleen and one when she’s Harley. There’s nothing subtle about them.”
So even though she didn’t reveal the specific scents used, it seems like these are two pretty obvious (and inexpensive!) choices:
Skulls and Roses Ed Hardy Eau De Parfums for Women

If you’re feeling a little more Harleen (and sometimes, aren’t we all?), you can try this Playboy gift set:

Even if you’re not dressing up as Harley Quinn for Halloween, it never hurts to channel her in your everyday life, so go on with your sexy self.
