Dolce & Gabbana can always be relied upon to pick a fine face for their fragrances and by choosing American model Noah Mills to front their new Pour Homme campaign, they’ve done it again!
We caught up with the charming heartthrob to talk fine fragrances, fitness and filming with Mario Testino and Dolce & Gabbana stunner Laetitia Casta.
This is the latest of several Dolce & Gabbana campaigns for you – how does it feel to work with the designers and brand again?
It’s fantastic to be working with Dolce & Gabbana again! Every experience I have had working with the brand has been incredible, so the opportunity to come to Sicily and collaborate with them again is really special, I was honoured to be asked.

How would you describe the Dolce & Gabbana man in your own words?
He’s a real man’s man. He has his own way of doing things, his own unique style and he really stands out for that.
Tell us what you think of the fragrance?
The fragrance is really great; it’s classic and masculine with a little warmth. I love refreshing fragrances with a hint of citrus, which Pour Homme has. Fragrances which are noticeable without being overpowering are the ones I go for, and this one definitely covers that. I like to wear fragrances, for me it is the finishing touch when I’m getting ready; I never forget to wear it.
Tell us how the ad shoot has been going? How has it been working with Mario Testino?
The shoot was amazing, but it was so hot! The temperatures were pretty intense and I have to say I’m not quite as acclimatised as Laetitia is, but even so it was a great experience and I had such a blast working with Laetitia, Mario and the crew. Mario is a genius, his vision is in another league and it’s been an honour to work with such an expert once more. He has such great intuition and a sense of how things should look; the slightest movement can alter the way a shot looks and he completely pre-empts that. I’ve learnt a lot and I feel like we’ve got some great shots.
The chemistry between you & Laetitia Casta has been incredible to watch! How has she been to work with as a leading lady?
Laetitia is so great; we got on incredibly well during the shoot. Her sense of humour is so dry and witty and she’s so spirited; she certainly kept us all in check and was really so much fun to work with. I think we had a great rapport, and neither of us takes ourselves too seriously so that really helped during the shoot.
Do you have a workout regime?
People may not believe me, but I actually enjoy working out. I think it’s a great outlet to really de-stress and refresh the body and mind. I try to exercise every day if I can – I hit the gym, or go for a run or swim, I do some weights too. I think people always feel great after exercising.
In your opinion what makes a woman beautiful?
I think that curves and sensuality make a woman beautiful. Having said that I think beauty comes in many different forms and it doesn’t just have to be a woman looking physically beautiful. I think aesthetics play a role in the initial attraction, but there has to be some depth there too. To me beauty could be a great personality, confidence, an amazing sense of humour. I have always been attracted to women who have passion whether for their family or career. Sometimes beauty cannot even be defined, it’s just that special something that comes from within.
Tell us about the projects you have coming up in the future?
I really love acting and have been thinking about expanding my career here as well as potentially moving into music production. I also keep thinking about my academic goals. I dropped out of school so obtaining a psychology degree will always be something I would love to accomplish.
