Blake Lively is kind of obsessed with perfume.

The 27-year-old ex-'Gossip Girl' star, who has been the face of Gucci Première since its launch in 2012, has a lot to say when it comes to scent—and we've got the chance to show her latest video interview exclusively on Beauty Editor. (Woohoo!)

Blake's latest role is for the brand new edition of Gucci Première, the Eau de Toilette. Compared to the original Eau de Parfum, Blake describes the new scent as "the day version... a lighter, brighter, airier version."

The notes include orange blossom, light citrus oils, white flowers, leather, patchouli and musk. And as Blake explains, there's a balance of masculine and feminine—which she strives for not just in perfume but in her personal style as well. The "sexy" leather and "flirty" citrus are rounded out with girly florals for an "elusive power." C'mon, don't you want to smell like Blake now?

But fragrance also has a deeper meaning for the star. She considers it part of her identity, making her "who I am, what I want to be, what I want people to remember me by." She adds, "I'm much closer to the women I want to be now than I was five years ago."
