Smells Like Tatt Spirit


Yes, from the designers of the Ed Hardy body tatts comes: Ed Hardy Men’s Eau de Toilette, 3.4 oz. $75.00.

And no, this is not a joke:

This fragrance was created with special effects and colorful sensations inspired by the dramatic and cool Ed Hardy tattoo art. Bright and tantalizing citrus effects of Bergamot & Mandarin are touched by the aromatic expression of Thuja and the sharp bite of Clary Sage for added zest.

This opening is the perfect preview to a colorful Mint Julep cocktail that matches up with Ozone for a psychedelic explosion of color and effervescence.

The result is of super refreshing mint mixed with colorful bubbles that provides a provocative edginess. Sequoia Scent Trek brings a masculine woodiness to the fragrance that is embraced by sensual Musks and a touch of Black Amber. The final effect is of a masculine floralcy tattooed on to wood that lasts and lasts.

Yes, our collective aesthetic bankruptcy is for sale at Macy’s, at $75 bucks a pop. Were this only a joke, I could sleep better at night knowing the future of culture and civilization doesn’t hang in the balance.

But how about some shout-outs to the highly paid Macy’s copywriter who came up with “masculine floralcy” as a descriptive term. I might’ve gone with “douchey and rank,” but that might not have helped sales.

Hmm.

“Masculine Floralcy.”

Kind of like running douchebaggery through the Polite Euphemismometer.

But I’ve always wanted to experience the “sharp bite of Clary Sage.” She’s that erotic masseuse from Memphis who works off Hollywood and Vine, right?
