Kristen Stewart, Balenciaga

What's that smell?

If it's "dangerous," "super French" and "fresh," it's Balenciaga's new fragrance, Florabotanica. At least that's how Kristen Stewart, the face of the scent, would describe it.

In a live Q&A Thursday afternoon at, the Twilight star fired through fan questions about the perfume. (The chat was expected to last a half-hour, but K.Stew finished in 13 minutes.)

Describing the fragrance as "alluring, bold and natural," Kristen assured fans she "wasn't BS-ing."

"Luckily I like the smell of the fragrance," she said. "So I don't have to lie about that, and that's great."

When pressed to compare Florabotanica to a movie, Kristen, who starred in Rupert Sanders' Snow White and the Huntsman, said it's "super Alice in Wonderland." (As you'll recall, Rupert is the married director Kristen had that momentary indiscretion with this summer. Fortunately, K.Stew and Robert Pattinson have now moved past the cheating scandal and reconciled.)

And would she be Alice in the hypothetical perfume movie? "Yes, totally," she said with a smile.

Kristen also said that Balenciaga and this particular fragrance "draws [in] sort of fearless people" and attracts "individuals." She added that the Florabotanica scent "is present."

When asked if she was included in this fearless Balenciaga fanbase she described, Kristen answered jokingly, "Damn right! I hope so. God, I try to do that [be present] every day."

She also revealed that her favorite flowers are gardenias and she wants to learn French. "It's a goal of mine," she said. "But I'm so not there yet. I've been a little preoccupied."
