Taking a scientific sniff at the culture of smell
The perfume reminds me of a quote from Andy Warhol:"Commercial things really do stink. As soon as it becomes commercial for a mass market it really stinks.
Nomadic:Somwhere on the astral plane Mr. Campbell's Soup Can might be enjoying the irony of fragrances being launched in his name.Mrs. Orbison's project is creepy because Orbison wasn't a guy who would have enjoyed it in the least. It's commercial necrophilia by proxy.
But I actually DO like the idea of a Yoko Ono fragrance. Not John Lennon as done by Yoko Ono, but Yoko Ono as done by Yoko Ono!There would have to be a very high, piercing introduction note . . .
Nathan Branch:How about Grunge Widow by Courtney Love? Or Sonic for Men by Patti Smith?
