    This is a sign of... something.

    “A mechanical construct: illustrating strong work ethic, determination, creativity, and innovation. Copper gears, brass cogs, fused wiring, scorched iron, and motor oil.”

    Perhaps for sprinkling over a shark you're jumping. (I know, Libby, I said I wouldn't be negative, but this is definitely a sign of the times.)

    I dunno Warren, BPAL make scents for everything. In a lot of ways they're marketing a sort of anti smelling salts -- little vials being to carry around for when the real world isn't faint enough.

    I giggled too when I heard about that, but mostly because BPAL is awesome stuff. I know why so many people obsess over collecting their scents and why they've been so popular: they're great at capitalizing on literary elements as stink thematics and they make really high-quality brews.

    Probably gonna have to be a total consumer whore and get a sample of this.

    (Today I have on Neotokyo, which if I remember correctly is supposed to be all cherry blossoms and ozone. Yum, metallics.)

    It *is* entertaining to try and imagine the sort of woman who'd wear a scent like that in public.

    Well, I don't know if I'll wear it in public (skin chemistry does such odd things to some scents), but I ordered a bottle and I'm eagerly awaiting it. Of course, I love the smells of metal and motor oil.

    I adore BPAL.... their scents are very multi-layered, and smell different every hour or so you wear them. You can create your very own ambience, in a cloud of scent. I love em.

    I like their "Zombi" perfume. It smells like dirt. I could just roll in dirt, but then I'd be dirty.
    Hell, I will probably buy this just to find out if it's any good. And because bathing in motor oil and soldering on myself probably is not healthy.

    Smell fetish. Oddly enough the sense of smell is the potent trigger for memories and by extension, cluster associations. So this is not all that unusual i guess.

    Course, I expect that i'll marry the first girl who's smart, funny, digs me, and smells like pan fried chicken.
    I'm a little surprised that there isn't food based perfumes outside of citrus scents.

    ... ... ...well if you like the smell of dirt, motor-oil, and crack-fumes ...I reccomend you check the alleyaways of your nearest major city, and be sure to pick up some track-marks and bruises for sovenirs!

    Kinesys - It's not quite pan-fried chicken, but it's along those lines.

    I've got a perfume that smells like soda pop. It's sugary and effervescent!

    I find it WAY more interesting that BPAL is offerning, on that same page of limited editions, a KRAMPUS perfume. Krampus?! The sinister anti-santa who takes bad little children to hell?? In a bottle?! Prepare me for dousing!

    I saw that BPAL fragrance and wanted to smell it, immediately. I love the smell of motor oil and welding and any burning metal smells. They seriously have the most back-asswards retail site ever, though. The Booty Call has some massage oil of theirs, and it's absolutely, deliriously awesome-smelling. And* doesn't make me break out in a rash. I'm allergic to everything.

    As a rule, though, I usually smell like bacon and cigarettes.

    So glad I live in a pro-bacon household. In case it was missed, the prototype bacontie:


    Also, Libby brought to my attention that there's Bacon incense up on Etsy.

    /hope that's not a threadjack. not intended as such. I fear the Arse Eels.

    I would buy bacon and cigarette scented massage oil. As long as it's also caffeinated.

    Bacon? Bacon.

    I know what I'm using the bacon grease in the fridge for, now. I'll mash some cigarettes and ground-up NO-DOZ into it.


    Fredrik : have my bacon babies, you just brought me joy.

    Sez here in Wikipedia, BPAL made scents based on the writings of Neil Gaiman to raise money for CBLDF. Which would be more challenging to stand beside on the subway - the scent of Transmetropolitan, or the scent of Crooked Little Vein?
