College Perfumes and Colognes

Do You Want to Smell Like Your College?

Not ready to leave your college days behind? Masik, a year-old fragrance company, is betting on it. Their small but growing line features scents inspired by various universities. To create the juice, the team considers things such as school colors, the mascot, campus flora, and the fight song. (Does that mean that the UC Santa Cruz fragrance would smell like a banana slug?) Right now, only UNC and Penn State have their own fragrances, but other schools are following. Would you want to smell like your school, or would you take a pass?

Heck no. I don't know what it would smell like but I have zero school pride.

The idea of using some local flora to create the scent sounds like it could be cool. (mascots, etc... not so much) But I have to agree with the majority here. It sounds like just another overpriced novelty item, and I'd be impressed if there was actually any quality scent to it. Plus when they start off with UNC for their advertising, you know you're going downhill fast! ;) hehe

Hmmm... Just wondering what Auburn University perfume would smell like... Maybe a farm.

I wouldn't mind being reminded of the University of Edinburgh every time I put on my perfume!

I would buy it as a novelty item, but I'm gussing the eau de UT Austin would smell like pachouli and leather with a hint of drag rat.

I go to Kent State, and I'm thinking its scent would smell "cheap." OH HOH HOH.

Um, I don't really want to smell like a Demon Deacon... Wake Forest would probably smell like evil priests, magnolias, and krispy kremes. Pass.

When I was at Rutgers it smelled like Ck1. Don't think so.

My college smelt like a combo of cheap booze, cigarettes and that musty smell that vintage shops have (because the people there were 'sooo edgy', was Goldsmiths, of Damien Hirst fame), so er, no!

so i guess my perfume would smell like a bunch of kids eating cheetos and playing world or warcraft while solving circuits?

Wow, way to target the young and foolish. There's no way I'd want to smell like beer, urine and vomit. I'm surprised UNC went for this.

Hey UNC was my school. Lets see its quite historic and the mascot is a ram. Soooo it would smell old and like a ram. No thanks. :o)

OMG PinkUnicorn you are totally right! I actually thought that it was the same person commenting twice! As for the perfume. I go to an art University so I don't really know what it would smell like but I have to say I'm curious. :)

Okay totally random and completely unrelated, but ballaorgaditana and brittanyk, you look so much alike in your pictures that it is just freaking me right out!

I went to PSU for the first two years of college. I'd definitely check out the scent. I think it's a fun idea. People who go to PSU are a little fanatical, so it almost makes sense they made a fragrance for us :P

I go to Oxford. Our fragrance would smell like old books, ink, wet cobblestones, and port. With maybe a hint of riverwater and sweaty rowers. It isn't something that I'd really pay to smell like, to be honest.

No. What would Cu Boulder smell like? Stale key ice and weed?

Yeah I don't know about and turf is the only scents I could think of to sum up OU and I don't want to smell like either one of those. The packaging could be cute though.

Yeah, no thank you. Just because I went there, doesn't mean I want to smell like whatever they concocted...
