Eau d'Ashtray?


Attention fragrance fanatics ... how would you like to smell like an ashtray? No? How about fireworks on the Fourth of July, cold hard cash, magazine pages, or boiled crawfish? Now you can, for free!

I was trolling the ol' Intertubes, looking for some free samples, when I stumbled upon WeirdFragrances.com. For a limited time, you can get a free sample of one of ten off-the-wall unisex "perfumes," such as The Love of Money, Cajun Delight, Fourth of July, Burning Rubber, and yes, Ash Tray

Just go to their site, choose a scent, and fill in your address. Not all of them sound repulsive. In addition to those already listed, there are others - like Spiced Pumpkin, Fresh Bread, and Hot Cookies - that appear to be more conventional.

I opted for Grease Monkey. The copy reads, "Smell like a mechanic without getting your hands dirty (or getting paid $50/hr). Oil, spray lubricant, a little sweat, and pheromones kick this scent into high gear."

Who could resist that?

Won't you pretty pretty please send me a postcard w/ just a dab of grease monkey? I can't believe that's a real thing (but oddly enough can imagine the appeal.)

You got it, lady. Just send me your address. I'm pretty sure I'll hate it, but it was too intriguing to resist.

I think I can safely rely on my imagination for all the scents on the list, except for "Cajun Delight." I'm not sure whether that's going to smell like gumbo, or like a human being with a Cajun pedigree--presumably a delightful one.

The copy says "All the aromas of a good ol' Cajun backyard feast. Boiling crawfish and potatoes with subtle hints of cypress ... Laissez le bon temps rouler!"

Well, I love Bulgari Black (not blu) and it does smell like warm latex (and baby powder, so you stay away from it!)

That ashtray is so repulsive. Without a word, you may have turned a few people off smoking.

So, did you get the Grease Monkey yet? I'm very curious!

No, I don't have it yet. Just requested it today.

Oops, failed to read the fine print. Clearly I am not smart enough to be the target market for this stuff. And smelling like crawfish would just make me hungry all the time.

I'll be interested to read the report on Grease Monkey.

I ordered "magazine pages." Or maybe I didn't, since I never saw any fine print.
