Amanda Seyfried announced just two days ago that she will be someone’s mom soon and the floodgates of baby-related updates seem to be open for business. Today Amanda told Refinery29 that the human growing inside her has given her the kinda-lame superpower of being able to smell electricity. How very Karen from Mean Girls.
“I swear to god I can smell the TV,” she said, completely straight-faced. “There’s this static-y, metal-y scent. Do you know what I’m talking about?”
Nope! I’ve never been pregnant but I know it can make your senses, along with your everything else, go nuttier than a Lohan. You may recall that yesterday’s baby announcement took place during the launch of a fragrance line for Givenchy. Apparently Amanda is also using her bloodhound schnoz to sniff out a million different ways to describe the scent of vanilla.
“It smells like a cake,” she said. “Only a really chic, fancy one.”
“There’s something comforting and cozy about [the smell of] something baking or something sugary,” she says. “That’s why I love those Yankee candles, [in] Buttercream Frosting or Angel Food Cake. I mean, who doesn’t put a vanilla-scented candle out in their kitchen? [Those scents] relate to the child in me, which will live on forever. That’s also probably the pregnancy talking; I’ll blame it on that.”
I hate most vanilla-scented things, even if they do smell like a very “chic, fancy” cake. I’m not transported to childhood baking projects so much as middle school bathrooms. That’s where I would touch up my lips with those frosted pink lip glops that were so popular in 2001. And yes, it was The Look.
Amanda took her BABY BUMP and her dog for a walk with her fiance through NYC yesterday. Pictures are in the gallery below.
