Actress Julia Roberts says she loves to smell good and it is an important thing for her. "I like to smell nice. And I think it is best when perfume is kind of there, but still draws people in," a magazine quoted her as saying.

She, however, feels one has to be very attentive about what they want and added: "You have to get close to figure out what you`re dealing with."

The actress has been recently chosen as the brand ambassador of Paris`s luxury cosmetic house Lancome`s new fragrance La Vie Est Belle.
