Presidential perfume

Ah, The Smell of Hillary

Would you want to smell like Hillary Clinton? How about like Barack Obama or John McCain? April Cline hopes you do. The West Virginian woman has created a line of fragrance called Presidential Perfume just in time for the down-and-dirty politickin' season.

The $25 eaux de parfum and body cremes come in three varieties, each inspired by — but not endorsed by — a different candidate:

  • Hillary: a "delicate floral" with notes of jasmine, violet, rose and musk.
  • Barack: an energetic scent with notes of bergamot and musk.
  • John: McCain's fragrance incorporates notes of bergamot, water lily, lavender, cool greens, and "frosty musk."

Although the candidates may have different platforms, it seems they all inspire musky smells. (There's an Eliot Spitzer joke to be made, but I won't go there.) So far, the best-selling scent is Hillary, but Barack is a very close second. And as for John? Cline says the sales are "few and far between."

This is a pretty funny idea; fortunately it sounds as if I'd like the smell of my candidate's scent

I don't know if I'd use "delicate floral" to describe Hillary. I would figure her scent to be a lot more plucky and strong...
