Today my bottle of Costume National Homme arrived and I could not wait to open it up and try it.
In taking off the cellophane wrapping I got a feeling of the gray rubberized box and thought to myself this is going to be unique! I pull out the bottle which is a highly polished and looks like a modern sculpture.
The cap is quirky and cheap and hard to grip to take off but I could not wait to try this. Well I gave a spritz on my wrist at that point was dumbfounded and had to put the bottle down on the table and walk away.
I sat on my leather couch scratched my head and looked over at the bottle sitting on the table I could not believe it! What the f**k
Then it clicked on my slow brain - - - Its a costume! It is fragrance in a costume!!!
Costume National who is know for its quirks like having the models sit in the audience and have the photographers and guests walk down the runway instead. just played such a stunt on us! They took a known fragrance and just re-dressed it in a costume and launched it to the world and gave a case of the emperor new clothes. I looked over back at the bottle and laughed my ass off mostly at myself to be taken in by this.
Costume National took Salvatore Ferragamo Pour Homme which is a lighter scent and revved up the notes making it EDP and just repackage it in a new bottle and even kept the jus the same color!
