London: Singer Beyonce Knowles doesn’t like men applying strong aftershave as she thinks a strong scent is a turn-off.

“A man should never be too overbearing with his scent. I've come across many men with strong aftershave and it's a total turn-off,” she said.

The 29-year-old singer, who married hip-hop superstar Jay-Z, said it's much sexier if a man has a subtle scent rather than an overbearing one, a magazine reported.

Beyonce has just launched her second fragrance Heat Rush and says Jay-Z was involved in the creative process because she would only wear perfumes he approves of.

"One of the most important aspects of my perfume is that they get his seal of approval. When you wear a perfume, you want your man to love it. He loves my scents because he was part of the decision-making process. I wouldn't wear a scent which is disliked by him,” she added.
