Sabrina Elba, the wife of Hollywood star Idris Elba, has disclosed that her husband has a distinctive scent. Named an ambassador for Calvin Klein’s Eternity fragrance franchise alongside her husband, Sabrina, 35, shared insights into what the actor smells like.

“Idris has a musk that he uses as a body oil, and anyone that knows him knows that’s his smell,” the model said to People. “I love it. It embodies him to me.”

Idris and Sabrina first met at a party in Vancouver while Idris was filming “The Mountain Between Us.” They married in a three-day celebration in April 2019.

Sabrina noted that Idris has a unique sense of style, regardless of the occasion or location. “Idris for sure is effortless, timeless, and sexy to me. He doesn’t even have to lift a finger,” she said. “He just walks out the door, this confident sexy guy. He can be in a pair of flip-flops and sweats and I’m just like, ‘Wow, you’re going to make best-dressed lists.’ And he always does,” Sabrina added. “He’s effortless.”

Idris, for his part, said of his wife, “I think Sabrina is fresh because she loves the newest and coolest. And she’s elegant no matter what she puts on, whether it’s sweatpants or a ball gown, she looks elegant.”

On the couple’s red carpet fashion, she said “If we could match and wear matching colors, I’d actually love it.”

“Idris not so much. I love the idea of couple dressing and when couples do it, I just think it’s the cutest thing ever,” she further explained. “Idris doesn’t love it.”

Idris defended himself, however, stating, “When it’s all matching, matching and you look like twins, I’m like, ‘Oh man.”

Idris and Sabrina star in a campaign for Calvin Klein’s new Aromatic Essence scents from the Eternity portfolio. Photographed by Mert Alas, the campaign highlights their love story and will feature across digital, social, print, and TV platforms.

“There was a lot of expectation leading up to it,” Idris said. “I think Sabrina and I were both like, ‘Wait, wow.’ And I was like, ‘Oh my God, I really have to look really handsome in this thing, and you’re just going to ace it, because you’re just beautiful.’ ”

“We did it in a way that just felt so natural, so easy and that showcases Black love in a way I think isn’t seen enough — I love the idea of that,” Sabrina added.
