And you think your job is tough! Flanked by four hunky guys, model Chanel Iman hit the streets of New York on Monday carrying some very precious cargo: a million-dollar bottle of DKNY’s new fragrance, Golden Delicious. OK, so maybe it’s not that tough of a job. But who better to guard the goods than the DKNY fragrance spokesmodel?

“It was fun,” she told PEOPLE of the task. “I had no idea that it was a whole production — as a model, you never know what you’re getting into.”

What Iman, the face of DKNY’s Be Delicious, was getting into was promoting the sale of the million-dollar scent, which is actually a bottle of Golden Delicious designed by jeweler Martin Katz and covered in 2,909 rare jewels from around the world, including 2,700 brilliant white diamonds, 183 yellow sapphires and one 2.43-carat yellow canary diamond.

The bottle will be available for auction on the DKNY Core Club Facebook page; proceeds from the sale will benefit Action Against Hunger. “It’s a wonderful cause — you’ll be buying something in good spirit,” Iman offered.

The model, who celebrated her 21st birthday on a private island in Jamaica over the weekend with family and friends (“It was off the chain,” she gushed), said she’s been wearing Be Delicious since she was a child. “But I really love Golden Delicious,” she said of the new scent, “especially for the holidays.” The perfume combines notes of orange flower water and golden delicious apples with white rose, vanilla orchid, sandalwood and musk.

So where does Iman spritz her scent? “I’m the type of chick that just sprays it all over,” she shared, “and then goes about my day.”
