Tim McGraw Explains His 'Sensual' New Cologne

Earlier this week we told you about Tim McGraw’s first-ever fragrance, McGraw by Tim McGraw, which will hit stores this August — and we’ve gotten the chance to chat exclusively with the country superstar about his foray into the world of fragrance. Tim admits that he didn’t know much about cologne until he started working on his signature scent with Coty two years ago. “I didn’t know about notes and olfactory pyramids — they look like the old high school food pyramids,” McGraw tells PEOPLE. “To be able to pick and choose what I liked and combine them was actually turned out to be a lot of fun!” But as involved as he was in the creative process, McGraw admits he couldn’t have done it without a little help from his wife, Faith Hill. “I had my wife’s input. She sat there with me with every sample we had. The hottest woman in the world — I wanted her to like it,” he explains. “I wanted something that wasn’t overpowering. And something that had a very masculine, manly kind of smell to it. But something that was sensual enough for women to like.” And he admits he’s never been a big cologne wearer — until he created his own, that is. “I think it’s something that everyone can wear. My wife loves wearing it, actually. And she likes it on me.” We don’t doubt that one bit!

I’m sorry but am I the only one that does not find him attractive!? Very over-rated.

He’s right….Faith is the “HOTTEST WOMAN IN THE WORLD”!!! I’d love to smell the cologne on her!!!

I love that Tim McGraw is coming out with a cologne i was just wondering h ow much it would be anf if it will be in canada.

Christine on

Traci- yes you can buy it in Canada. And if you can’t find it in any stores, you could just buy it on Tim McGraw’s site for his colonge.

Debbie on

Yes I was wondering the same thing when can we get Tim’s cologne in Canada. If I can’ have him I would love to smell him………….lol Can’t wait.

Annie on

No Heather you are not the only one…I just can’t get a grasp on him either. The guy I am seeing thinks he’s the best thing since canned beer and sliced bread, singer family man and all…but I just can’t see it, or hear it!!!

I am really surprised there are some people who dont care for Tim Mcgraw. believe me,he is not the kind who thinks he is better than anyone else. and he does not act like it. when he poses,he is told to pose that way. and the pictures do sometimes make him look like he thinks he is someone special,but his wife thinks he is and his girls and that is what counts. for those who dont care for him ,you do have a right to your opinion. I think he is the sexiest country singer around besides his lovely wife.
