Elle Macpherson plans to launch her own fragrance

Elle Macpherson is in talks to "create" her own perfume.

The 52-year-old Australian model - who began her career in 1980s and boasts a career spanning 35 years - has admitted plans are "on the cards" for her to launch her own fragrance and has revealed she has been wearing a men's aftershave for three decades.

In an interview with The New York Times, the blonde beauty said: "I've worn Vétiver by Guerlain - it's a men's cologne - for maybe 30 years. I smelled it on somebody once, and then I wanted it for myself. But I'd like to create my own perfume. It's definitely on the cards."

And the former 'Britain and Ireland's Next Top Model' host, who already has a lingerie line 'Elle Macpherson Intimates', has launched her own 'WelleCo' powder supplements, with the recent addition of sleep-inducing tea and calming essential-oil mist.

Meanwhile, the mother of two - who has Arpad, 17, and Aurelius, 13, with her ex partner Arpad Busson - has revealed she rarely spends time on applying make-up, although she will not leave the house without lathering on the sunscreen.

She explained: "Being based in Miami, sunblock is my best friend.

"I like a very natural face. I don't really wear any foundation at all.

"I'm not someone who will spend an hour on make-up. I'm lucky if I spend 10 minutes, even when I'm going out. Concentrating for hours on your face -- I don't think it's healthy.

"I get recommendations from dermatologists or make-up artists. I like hearing about things word of mouth because there is so much product out there now, and they all come in such beautiful packaging, and they all promise the world. I get it confused, so that's why word of mouth is key."

And the entrepreneur, who has been credited with the title 'The Body' because of her super lean figure - has revealed she prefers working out with her friends, rather than a personal trainer.

Speaking about her fitness regime, she said: "For me, it's more about the sport. It's not about needing to get a workout in or losing weight. I don't spend time at a gym. I don't have a trainer. But I do have friends who I love to do these activities with."
