Let me be the first to say, 8-(*). Actually, I’m probably not the first to express that sentiment about Eau d’Whopper.
One of the things about eating a Whopper is that I want the smell off me immediately. I don’t want people to know I’ve eaten a Whopper. Better yet — I’ve never eaten a Whopper. I swear! What’s that onion smell wafting off me? Nuttin’. I’m makin’ a big tomato sauce.
While I am pretty sure this Whopper perfume is going to be an April Fool’s joke (it’s slated to be released on April 1st), one thing I am for is food-inspired fragrances. They are known as gourmands, and I find myself creating a lot of them.
I loved making my unisex scent, No. 13 Baby, with sweet orange essential oil, dark chocolate and vanilla accents but you’ve also got redwood in there. Tiger Phone Card, which will come out this summer, is chock full of lemongrass, lime and sweet basil essential oils, with coconut, but some other ingredients and musks that will make you feel like you’re not bathing in a bowl of pho. It’s just going to be perfect for summer.
And according to my very scientific sources, lemongrass promotes psychic awareness and purification. That just sounds better than helping with bladder infections and parasites, doesn’t it? More importantly, lemongrass essential oil smells sweet and inviting, suffused with a spicy cloud a second in. On its own it almost has everything a perfumer could want in a scent. But then isn’t that the way with nature? Doing it better every time.
