11/07/11 2/26/10 Weird Perfumes From Sushi to Sex: 10 Unconventional Fragrances February 26, 2010 by Beauty 35 We've highlighted some pretty strange scents before, like this ahem scent of a woman-inspired fragrance, and let's not forget the Burger King Flame by BK scent, inspired by grilled burgers. And now, here are 10 more to add to the list of oddball scents. That Old Book Smell What’s Your Reaction? Share this reaction with your friends! Love the smell of books that have that special scent only age can provide? You might just like CB I Hate Perfume's In The Library ($12—$65), which contains essences of English novel, Russian and Moroccan leather bindings, wood polish, and worn cloth. Lobster What’s Your Reaction? Share this reaction with your friends! Here's something from another kind of library — Demeter Fragrance Library, to be exact. From the leader in unusually themed scents, its Lobster Cologne ($6—$39.50) which contains notes of sea, sweet meat, and drawn butter, is described as being the brand's "most obtuse fragrance." You think? Sushi What’s Your Reaction? Share this reaction with your friends! Mmm, sushi. I love to eat it, but I'm not so sure I'd like to smell like I'd been rolling around in it. Continuing with the seafood theme, Demeter's Sushi Cologne ($6—$39.50) is supposedly a lot more pleasing than it sounds, with essences of sticky rice, seaweed, ginger, and lemon. Do you wish to smell like a fish? Just Like a Circus What’s Your Reaction? Share this reaction with your friends! L’Artisan Parfumeur Dzing! Eau de Toilette ($135) is inspired by the circus, with pretty scents like tonka beans, balsam, saffran, and ginger. It also includes some stankier essences to remind you of sawdust, saddle leather, gasoline, and yes — even wild animal poop. Fat Electrician What’s Your Reaction? Share this reaction with your friends! From the ever quirky Etat Libre d’Orange comes Fat Electrician ($69), inspired by the reckless lifestyle of a 1970s-era gigolo. However, the juice doesn't conjure up images of what you might expect from a fragrance with this cheeky moniker. With notes of vanilla bean, vetiver, and myrrh, it's actually quite pleasant. Really! Eau de Orgy What’s Your Reaction? Share this reaction with your friends! Mix together a little Egyptian geranium, cinnamon, musks, plum, and oudh, a resin from a rare South Asian tree, and what do you get? An orgy-inspired scent, my friends. Made by Kilian Hennessy, Liaisons Dangereuses ($225) is indeed dangerous. In fact, promotional materials for the scent describe it as "bodies slick with sweat, hot with the odors of sexual favors bestowed and received during the night." Oh my. Smells Like a Campfire What’s Your Reaction? Share this reaction with your friends! Who doesn't love the smell of a campfire? And while I'm not so sure how many of us want to smell like marshmallows and burning logs all the time, with Smells Like A Campfire Body And Room Spray ($25) you can capture the essence of an outdoor adventure whenever you want. Turpentine What’s Your Reaction? Share this reaction with your friends! Oh, Demeter, you never disappoint. I'm sure a little dash of Turpentine Cologne ($6—$39.50) is all we need to repel not just paint, but potential lovers, too. Garage What’s Your Reaction? Share this reaction with your friends! If grease monkey smells are what you're longing for, Comme des Garcons has a eau de toilette called Garage ($60) to satisfy your inner love for all things grease, oil, and rubber. Consisting of notes of laurel aldehyde, traces of kerosene, plastic florals, leather, vetiver acetate, and Chinese cedarwood, this scent is actually a lot softer than it sounds. The Stinky Cheese Woman What’s Your Reaction? Share this reaction with your friends! Back in 2007 YumSugar was rather excited for the launch of an Eau de Stilton Perfume, and while it's no longer available (tragedy!), it was an earthy, fruity scent with notes of angelica seed, clary sage, valerian, and yarrow.
