An interview he did to promote Eternity Aqua

Quote:
Eternity Aqua aims to bring another facet to the Calvin Klein Eternity fragrance franchise. It is described as a modern, aquatic woody scent that embodies casual elegance, easy confidence and effortless charm.

The fragrance face, model Ben Hill, is the personification of all those qualities. Born and raised in Sugar Hill, Georgia, he oozes southern charm and charisma as he discusses his partnership with Calvin Klein and Coty.

I am really happy that I am representing a fragrance that I really love, and has a lot of history behind it, he declares.

Hill is dressed in a stylish, slim-fitting grey suit, wears a jaunty hat and sports an immaculately trimmed beard. He also possesses what must surely be the most piercing blue eyes on the planet the perfect accessory for a fragrance called Aqua.

Hill is also engaging, articulate, and considers every question carefully .I was super ecstatic about being chosen [as the fragrance face], he tells The Moodie Report. I couldnt believe it. I was so excited, but nervous too. Every actor or model gets a little nervous at first about something really strong or big that they have to carry, and I knew I was responsible for something very important.

Hill says he grew up with Calvin Klein, and as a consumer its a brand hes always known. I grew up on it, he shrugs. I wore his stuff for years. When I was in college, some of the first jeans I had were Calvin Klein. Its always been a part of my life. And I can tell you for a fact, the first suit I ever bought with my own money was Calvin Klein.

Hill also claims that the first fragrance he ever bought was Calvin Kleins Obsession. Oh, they got me good, when I was just a kid, he laughs. But its true. I remember all my friends talking about it, when we were young and first getting into all that.

My aunt took me cologne shopping; she always bought me a fragrance every year, he continues. She would give me her card for Richs [a department store] and let me pick what I wanted, and I remember thats what I bought.

Hill says fragrance was a treat for him when growing up. I knew I was going to get some at certain times of the year, Christmas and my birthday. When I got older, I made my own choices, and I reckon I have bought every single Calvin Klein fragrance, because it all smells pretty good on me.

But certain favourites he has stuck with. The basic Eternity has always been a staple, he notes. Im careful not to run out of that.

Returning to the subject of Eternity Aqua, Hill generously paid tribute to the teamwork on the shoot, singling out the stylist Karl Templer and the photographer David Sims. It was the first time Id worked with both those guys, and they were amazing, he notes. And we were lucky enough to be in a great location, in Montauk.

It was really great fun, he continues. The team had their kids there, so there was a relaxed family vibe. It was not such a strenuous shoot. Everyone seemed laid-back, with no high tension and trust me, not all shoots are like that.

Neither are all jobs. Perhaps the reason Hill seems so appreciative of his lot in life now is that he started out as an industrial electrician, repairing equipment in manufacturing plants and factories. What then gave him the impetus to cash in his tool box?

I had a bad car accident, which made me think hard about my life, he replies. I had a model girlfriend, whod always told me I should try modelling too, but I really didnt know much about it. Then after the accident I decided to go to New York. Originally I wanted to act but I got into modelling instead.

And while Hill has since worked regularly, featuring in campaigns for the likes of Zegna and Louis Vuitton, being selected as the face of Eternity Aqua is clearly a career milestone.

This is the biggest thing Ive ever done; this is major, he confirms. Ive enjoyed so many things already, and worked with so many great people, but this is huge.

So what does the future hold next for Hill? Will he pursue his original dream of acting? I get offers quite a bit, he responds, so why not go into something if somebody keeps offering me these things? Why not pursue it, if they think Im great for it? Every photographer Ive ever worked with in my entire life has told me I should be an actor.

They say I move like an actor, that I take on a character when I do a shoot and they dont have to tell me what to do. I feel things, just like an actor has to.

On the Eternity Aqua shoot, however, Hills says his motivation was simply being himself. It was all about having the feeling of coming home from work, relaxing, feeling the presence of the ocean, and enjoying what I have, he explains. And you need confidence to do that, which takes time to build; its not given to you.

Refreshingly, Hill is au fait with the concept of travel retail, and professes himself to be an avid shopper while travelling the world for work.

If Im shopping at an airport, Im a sucker for a nice bag, he confides. And I dont only shop for myself, I shop for other people, such as family, agents, friends. And there are such great deals there, because its all tax free and who doesnt love that?

And of course there are things you find at the airport that you cant find in [domestic] shops, so its a little different. And because every airport has its own shops, often with local culture stuff too, you never know what youre going to find.

Hill has travelled extensively for work, and reveals India to be one of his favourite places. I went to New Delhi, Mumbai and Jaipur, and the latter especially was just so beautiful, he notes.

But Ive been lucky enough to see so many amazing places, so its difficult to choose. But I loved Argentina also and I remember how amazed I was the first time I came to Paris and saw the Eiffel Tower.
