May this serve as a reminder to any journalists getting off topic with Amal Clooney!
Amal clearly didn't seem to think so because she reportedly replied:

On if she ever tried on her mom’s fragrance as a kid:
“I definitely tried to get into my mom’s beauty products. I was one of seven children, so she had to guard anything that was hers! She used Maxim’s, I remember that; she still has it.”
On if she changes her fragrance depending on her mood:
“Sometimes. I do like to put on more of a warm fragrance for special occasions or for nighttime. I started working a couple of years ago with Eau de Lacoste, and I just love the flexibility of it, that it feels clean. It doesn’t have the presumption that it’s going to leave a trail, which is always important to me—to be subtle.”
On if a scent needs to match the wearer’s personality:
“For me, it has to sort of coordinate. There are fragrances that I love that I can never identify with. I’ve definitely made that mistake and then have been like, Who am I trying to be? [A perfume] can definitely alter your personality. I know when I’m working on a role sometimes I’ll associate a fragrance with a character.”
On her beauty essentials:
“I’ve become quite a La Mer devotee. I’ve tried other things, and I just keep coming back to it because it seems to repair the dryness in my skin. I really love a tinted moisturizer. I’ve used a couple different [ones]—Jouer and Laura Mercier and Kiehl’s. I like to play with makeup. I feel like after I use it for a while, I want to try something new. Except you go back to your classics, like BADgal lash mascara by Benefit. It just works on me.”
On her favorite lip product:
“I like the [Smith's] rosebud balm, in a tin. I’ve got my daughter hooked on it now.”
Beauty tips passed from mother to daughter?? AH-mazing!!
And now she's passing them to fans as well!
Truly a gift!!
