Antonio Banderas may not share every detail of his life, but he does have at least one secret out in the open: The sexy Spaniard introduced his latest men’s fragrance, The Secret, Wednesday night at New York’s Instituto Cervantes. “Every human being [has a secret]–nobody just reveals what they have inside,” he told PEOPLE. The new release is his seventh produced by PUIG, who, says Banderas, ensure that the colognes have evolved with him. “I’m going to be 50 this year, so there’s another turn of a corner into maturity in a very clear, strong way,” he says of moving away from fresher scents into The Secret’s darker notes of leather, pepper and cinnamon. And with so many signature scents to choose from, which is his wife Melanie Griffith’s favorite? ”In the morning, she might prefer something simpler, something not so noticeable, like Diablo. And if we go out at night, then she prefers something stronger.” But when it comes to his wife, the perfumer prefers Melanie au naturel. “My favorite scent is her,” he says with a smile. The actor is also turning photographer, auctioning off several of his latest pictures via Charity Buzz to benefit Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS. The Secret will be available at drugstores, chain retailers, and department stores starting August. –Shruti Dhalwala
