Matthew Mcconaughey has created his own minty body lotion to make up for the fact he never wears cologne or deodorant.

The actor, who was recently voted the World's Sexiest Man Alive in America's People magazine, admits he hasn't worn a scent or donned deodorant since he was 14-years-old.

That's when he discovered his natural odour turned the ladies on.

He says, "The women in my life, including my mother, have all said, 'Hey, your natural smell smells, one, like a man and, two, smells like you.'"

But McConaughey insists his dislike for scents and deodorants doesn't render him unclean: "I bathe - hopefully it's in a river instead of a shower."
