Sure go ahead.
If I'm reading these instructions correctly, they seem to be suggesting that I should urinate into the fragrance before wearing it. Now I pride myself in wearing all sorts of challenging stuff--Muscs Koublaï Khan, bleu-cheese-bomb Jardenia, Sécrétions Magnifique--I wear them all. But this? This one is grossing me out a bit.
On the one hand, I'm thinking, if I'm not the guy who's the target audience for this then, really, who is? I feel like this is a piece of art that deserves to be confronted on its own terms. On the other hand, I am not totally without awareness that the art might be about making people wear their own urine rather than magically transforming a fragrance with a little piece of me.
To pee or not to pee. That is really the question.

Sure go ahead.
It won't do you any harm but if you ever come to sell it on the board you might regret telling us about it.
Aim to get a derivative of the 'honey' note. Try different diets (vegan comes to mind) and see if that makes a difference.
In the immortal words of Ben Stiller's Starsky: DO IT.
If you had only just purchased Kouros instead then you would not need too.
Lets hope that Mr Angelo Orazio Pregoni dont do it itself to their fragrances (that could explain the little batches, btw).
You paid money for this?
Sure! For the sake of Art, do it.
Note to Self: Stay the foc away from O'Driu, you need this in your life like another mortgage.
I look forward to trying it out tonight, either with or without the addition.
I think you should, as that way I can use you as my guinea pig to see if it makes a positive difference while I get to abstain. ;-)

WTF?? Do it, & do let us know what (if any) difference it makes. LOL, it makes me wonder how many perfumers are doing this without telling us!

Great conceptual art there. And I love the design. Rip off the idea and give your own version as Christmas gifts. :P
I agree. DO IT.
...but drink plenty of water and avoid asparagus.
“I wanna say something. I’m gonna put it out there. If you like it, you can take it, if you don’t, send it right back…."
No, No NO!!!!!
Back away from the instructions, the bottle......back away, now!
This is GROSS!

If you do I think urine for a treat!
I'm repeating previous BNers suggestion to avoid asparagus, dark meats, and rather drink plenty of cranberry juice. And, since we're at it, why not make it even more useful and add pigments or the like which detect the presence of blood, viruses and other useful medical information?
But I'm a little disturbed now. This one requires providing one's own. But now I fear that another one that came pre-mixed may have contained another type of body waste, not one's own.
Go for it. According to the brain of the interwebs:
None of that stuff sounds particularly bad, and any of the "other" stuff is present at a concentration of less than .67 g/L. One drop is 0.0625mL, so you are looking at less than 0.041 milligrams of "other" stuff added to the bottle. And its sterile and non-toxic.
It's probably less urine than you get any time you get into a swimming pool, and its your own.
- - - - - - - - - - - - -
I think you should because it's only one drop. Do you realize how much urine gets on your clothes when you relieve yourself in a urinal? I know the concentration of it isn't one drop together but I think the overall spray that you don't detect is more than one drop.
If you decide to urinate into the bottle, make sure you go to Carnegie Deli, have a Reuben sandwich with plenty of Deli Mustard before, so this will now become the saltiest and strangest(sans vetiver) O'Driu fragrance you have ever tried.
Eat 2lb of Jaffa Cakes and then go for it.
What's the worst that could happen?
Just don't offer it afterward on the Giveaway thread!
Or you could try layering....
Edit: Whoops, already suggested by Russel.
