New Interview of Dakota with Instyle

Some people have a really personal connection to fragrance. They wear one scent, and they wear that one scent for the rest of their lives. Others are trying something new all the time. What method do you follow when it comes to fragrance?

Dakota: I stick to the same scents. My olfactory is very strong, so I remember people by the way they smell. Places, people’s homes. It evokes a lot of memories and emotion in me. My mother has always smelled the same, and I find it really beautiful. I find scent a very personal thing. There’s also times where people will wear a certain scent, and I have to leave the room.

There’s a smell that always reminds me of my grandmother, and it wakes me up when I smell it. What’s one particular scent that evokes a strong memory for you?

Dakota: I think it’s my mother’s perfume. It’s a funny thing, but whenever I see her, she always smells the same, so I kind of feel immediately cozy and safe.

New Interview of Dakota with Los Angeles Times

Dakota Johnson emerged from the balcony of a hotel room inside the Chateau Marmont in West Hollywood. The “Fifty Shades of Grey” star was impeccably dressed and looked statuesque clad in a black Gucci blouse and A.P.C. jeans.

With her Anastasia Steele-Christian Grey days behind her with last winter’s release of “Fifty Shades Freed,” Johnson closed 2018 by starring in the much-buzzed-about horror film “Suspiria.” The latter movie was directed by Luca Guadagnino, and rumors have been swirling for months that Johnson might appear in the director’s sequel to his 2017 Academy Award-nominated film, “Call Me by Your Name.”

“Working with Luca is one of the most precious parts of my life,” she said, calling the experience of reteaming with him a joy after they had collaborated on “A Bigger Splash” in 2015. “Working with him is a real gift because I can sometimes feel really discouraged in this industry. … Like, who can you really trust? And I really trust him.”

Johnson, daughter of Melanie Griffith and Don Johnson, is also developing a number of entertainment projects, including Taylor Jenkins Reid’s “Forever, Interrupted” and the Amazon historical drama “Unfit” under her production company, Silhouette Productions.
