Everybody likes some perfumes. But what kind of perfume a person likes depends on the taste of a person. The art of making perfumes began long time ago. I think that people began making them in ancient Mesopotamia and Egypt. The term perfume is derived from Latin ‘per fumus’. That means ‘through smoke’. Nowadays technology made making perfumes far more easier, but it is still not easy and not everybody can make one. Check out these selection of the strangest perfumes ever made. Enjoy.
1. Blood Concept Perfume
No, this perfume is not made of blood. There are four perfumes in this series, as well as human blood type: A, B, AB and 0. Authors of this perfume are two Italians: Giovanni & Antonio. Giovanni is a fashion designer and Antonio is a copywriter and photographer. I find it interesting that the shutter, on the bottles of the perfumes, is a dropper. That reminds me of blood testing and laboratories. A bit weird but still interesting.
2. Burger King Flame
Burger King (yes, you read that right) launched a perfume called ‘Flame’. Burger King has given the chance to people to smell like their favorite meat snack.
3. Demeter Fragrance Library
Demeter is making perfumes based on real objects like lobster or turpentine. Why would you like to smell like a flower, when you can smell as a swimming pool? There are to many of them so I didn’t collect all pictures of them, but here are some of that I find the most disturbing or funny: Sushi, Lobster, Turpentine, Funeral Home, Clean Windows, Dirt, Fireplace, Laundromat, Holy Water, Mildew, Pipe Tobacco, Swimming Pool, Stable, Vinyl, Cannabis Flower, Wet Garden and Between the Sheets.
4. L’Artisan Parfumeur Dzing
There are several perfumes named L’Artisan Parfumeur Dzing. People say that these perfumes suppose to smell like circus. But people who have actually smell it said it smells like cardboard. The author of these perfumes is Olivia Giacobetti, who said that she find inspiration for these perfumes in circus sights, smells and tastes.
5. Eau de Stilton Perfume
Eau de Stilton is a perfume that smells like cheese. Who on Earth would like to smell like cheese? But, of course there are many strange people. The Stilton is a cheese making company, who made this perfume to increase the consummation of their product. I wonder what were the results of this experiment. Oh, I forgot to mention of what kind of cheese this perfume smells of, it smells of that moldy blue cheese. Like smelling of cheese isn’t enough.
6. Comme des Garcons’ Garage
This is for garage smell lovers. These perfumes are described as the smells of a big city are captured in a transparent plastic bottle in which you can observe a garbage bag. The main notes are aldehydes, kerosene, leather and plastic and and vetiver acetate.
7. CB I Hate Perfume In the Library
These perfumes smell like old books. From all of the perfumes from above and below , I would like to smell this one. I like the smell of the old books.
8. By Killian Les Liaisons Dangereuses
Ever wished you could smell like that orgy you went to that time? Well, now you can! Killian Hennessy as evoking the scent of “bodies slick with sweat, hot with the odours of sexual favours”
9. My DNA Fragrance
My DNA Fragrance perfumes are individually custom designed to your unique genetic code.
10. Vulva Original Vaginal Scent
Now, this is definitively the strangest one. This is a perfume that smells like vagina. A PERFUME that smells like VAGINA. Why? Seriously, why?
