Bad Perfume: Wine Review StylePosted: August 7, 2013
The second of a series of posts that grew from a horrific encounter with a bad perfume and its woman.
In this edition, I review the perfume I smelled that morning.
Caustic, yet lingering, this perfume is best paired with a woman who doesn’t want to be paired with anyone.
Skillful blending of ingredients has yielded an eau de cologne which announces its presence with authority. The perfume uses that authority to say “get the hell out” to anyone within ten feet of the wearer.
A delicate bouquet of acetone yields to hints of grapefruit and over-heated lard. The resulting base scent is so dry it can cause nosebleeds.
A woody essence touches the nose like a Louisville Slugger hits a hanging curve ball. This accent leads to a surprise finish that puts one in mind of the water left over after boiling a pound of hot dogs next to a litter box.
This fragrance is available (without a permit) at your local discount store.
(Hey Patrick, I think I’ve got at least one more on this topic for you.)
