“I literally have every designer you can think of on my wedding Pinterest board,” Julianne Hough, engaged to NHL fiancé Brooks Laich, tells Stylish. “Monique Lhuillier, Marchesa, Oscar de la Renta, Carolina Herrera and Elie Saab … the list goes on.”

Although the Dancing With the Stars judge, 28, admits she’s “totally behind” on planning (“It’s so funny, last year we were like, ‘We’ll take a year to do this’ and then this year we’re like ‘Maybe we should take another year’”), she has already made up her mind on what she wants her wedding to smell like. “It will probably be outdoors because we’re such outdoorsy people, so I want it to smell woodsy, fresh with florals and campfire-esque,” she says. Totally dreamy, right?

But Hough seems to have a nose for things other than weddings. The Giorgio Beverly Hills Glam spokesmodel told Stylish that her sense of smell was “strong,” so it was only natural that we put it to the test with a rapid-fire question-and-answer game. Read on for her responses!

Stylish: What scent defines you — at this stage in your life?

Hough: Giorgio Glam. It’s the definition of glamour, confidence and independence and gives off the vibe of a woman creating her own path and destiny.

Stylish: What reminds you of your childhood?

Hough: We used to make taffy a lot as kids, so definitely vanilla.

Stylish: Is there anything that inspires you to dance?

Hough: I grew up in London dancing and I remember our studio. It sounds terrible, but it had this musty, mildew-y smell that reminds me of dance and the fact that I’m going to work out really hard.

Stylish: What reminds you of the holidays?

Hough: Cinnamon-spiked pinecones!

Stylish: And of Brooks?

Hough: Any scent that’s woodsy, musky, very manly.
