    Default Vulva

    A German company, Vivaeros, is currently marketing a fragrance for men called Vulva. I kid you not. Link here (caution - not safe for work, 18 yrs and older please): http://www.smellmeand.com

    Is it just me, or do you think they totally stole the marketing ad (bottle between the models legs) from Tom Ford for Men? If I was Tom I'd be pissed!

    I think it's the other way around. Someone spilled some Sécrétions Magnifiques on Vulva and it gave birth to Tom Ford for Men.
    From the site: "Vulva is not a perfume. It is a beguiling vaginal scent."

    Well, there went MY lunch. No, seriously, I can certainly see why a straight guy might wanna smell like a woman's crotch all day. Lord knows I love the smell of a man! I mean, why NOT be brutally frank about our pheromonal preferences? For example, it's that very "pee-pee" note so often discussed about Kouros that makes Kouros one of the sexiest fragrances EVER, imho.

    Look at it another way -- we all know where true musk and civet come from (yuk!), and all of us admit that each adds indelibly beautiful elements to certain fragrances. Why be skittish or prudish about human elements, be they real or synthetic?

    God only knows what they are putting in those glass vials. Have you heard about the website that sold used college girls knickers, in reality they were putting drops of tuna oil on the crotch of the knickers!!! It's true. Gross or what.

    Ha ha! To paraphrase an ad for another product, with a name like Vulva, it's got to be good! This one has come up a couple times before.

    I think my friend TV is onto something - it's very common to criticize perfumes for smelling like some bodily secretion, animal, etc., but I bet that in certain intimate situations, those same people would be just a little bit more accepting, and less critical of the same smells all of a sudden. Perfumers clearly understand this.

    It just depends on whether or not the smell-source is providing other sensations that are consderably more compelling!

    emmm...

    I'm actually insanely curious what notes are behind this and would love to know what it really smells like. I didn't see anything about notes on the website. This reeks conceptually of the book/movie "Perfume".

    But don't forget once crucial thing...if a man smells like c**t who's he going to attract? It isn't going to be women.
    But of course if anybody watched the short movie they might remember that it is not actually a perfume. It's a sex toy! To be used when you're alone! lol

    That's only when you spray it for the first time. After that, it just goes through motions.

    oddly enough, in college i took a sex psychology class and we discussed human and sexual scents and how some women try to cover up their natural scents using products, but in a test men were given a chance to smell a bunch of differnt things on a cotton swab and something like 4 out of 5 liked vagina smell better than rest. Cant blame em!

    Well, who wants to smell like that huh? I don't find it that strange really (but the marketing behind this is just bloody awful). Just take a look at what other fragrances out there which might remind you of similar things: Serge Lutens - Muscs Koublaï Khän, Alexander McQueen - Kingdom, Hermès - Eau d'Hermès, L'Artisan - L'Eau de Navigateur.

    And let's not forget about the new house Etat Libre d'Orange, which names almost put the name Vulva to shame... Different approach gives a different reaction, no?

    How many threads are we going to start about this stuff?

    I can't stand not having novel scents, especially if they make claims like this. I also want to be the first BNer to own a scent called Vulva. Grant: make sure this stuff is in the directory, because I ordered a vial.


    That's right, I did it.


    I'll be sure to report back.
