Scent of a gadget
Sniff, sniff...You smell like an Apple?
You like it? It's the coolest new perfume.
Perfume? But you smell like an odd mix of cardboard, glue, plastic and aluminium.
Exactly. Just like a freshly unboxed MacBook. It reminds me of the day when I bought my first baby. Ooh. . the feeling is indescribable...unwrapping it gave me such a head rush. This scent brings it all back. Hats off to the Melbourne based artists who managed to bottle this unique smell.
You Apple fanatics are a rather odd bunch.
You won't understand it, dude. Think of the day when you first got into your BMW. I am sure you remember the aroma of the fresh leather seats. Besides, if you find my iScent weird, you should check out some other fragrances in the market.
Really? I am all ears.... err, nose
Well, there is Vulva Original, a scent that is like vaginal odour, and Funeral Home, which blends the fragrances of lilies, carnation and gladiolus that one typically finds in the arrangements next to coffins.
Ugghh...why would one want to smell of death?
I am with you on that one. Maybe it won't be such a bad idea to wear 'Flame' by BK, I mean Burger King. The burger-scented cologne has the "the scent of seduction with a hint of flamebroiled meat". That would surely draw ravenous, carnivorous chicks to grab a bite of me. I am sure it would work better than the 'Axe effect'.
Haha. You wish.
Anyway, I am sure the most bizarre perfume is 'Secretions Magnifique' which smells like semen, blood and spit.
I think the makers and buyers need therapy. What a weird fetish!
Fetish is the right word. In fact, that reminds me of fetish supermodel Dita Von Tesse. The burlesque dancer has launched a scent she says was inspired by an ex's comment that she smelled like his mother.
Yawn! Like we need any more celebrity fragrances
