    Default Is this for real?

    m16981538134_1.jpg

    I find this very funny. Yet, I do wonder how it smells?
    Is it a new car smell? What should a Chevy cologne smell like?
    I'd hope for 1970 Chevelle SS.

    I'd like to see Derek Bieri of Vice Grip Garage do a review of this on his YouTube channel. The fella does love a Chevelle.

    I like the stained cellophane and torn off price tag

    I wonder what it smells like?

    I would bet that it is very diffusive, likely with bold citruses that "rev" the scent through the air. It is likely fresh synthetic and noisy.

    Would not surprise me, although not aware to have seen this car brand (among the many fragrances released under the name of various car brands) did not find in local stores and/or fragrance retail websites yet

    Sometimes it's fun to buy these obscure oddities....I occasionally buy them for my kids.

    Why not

    How is it different compared to:

    Ford Mustang
    Hummer
    Cadillac
    Jaguar
    Maserati
    Ferrari
    Lamborghini
    Bentley

    All have various offerings, some actually really nice

    The bottle is the most car company-looking bottle I've ever seen. I saw Nissan fragrances the other day at the discounters.

    It is evidently all too real.

    Never tried it but supposed to be a citrus/woody scent. The bottle was a bizarre looking car tire kind of design.

    Guessing it would smell like a lot of cheaper celebrity scents from 20 years ago. Not horribly dreadful but generic, highly ignorable and pointless.

    Doesn't sound car or "Chevy" related in the slightest.

    Just from observations, BENTLEY seems to be the only auto brand that has made some inroads such that there likely some people who buy and wear it that don't even know it's a car moniker.

    The markup on frags is so H-U-G-E, I'm sure it tempts many a brand or person with an established name to give it a go.
    Between Covid and retirement I don't get out much. But when I do, I smell real good.

    In a more perfect world, I would expect car company fragrances to actually smell like something related to automobiles. Dior's Fahrenheit smells like gasoline, Gucci Guilty Absolute smells like car leather interior, and I hear that Bvlgari Black smells like a tire.

    I think Ferrari Uomo is the only one that conjures up auto traits.

    Vintage Tabarome smells like several car payments.

    Mercedes Benz Club smells like the exhaust from a vintage Benz.
    Not sure if that was the intent or not.

    I do wish there was always a connection between the car companies and the fragrance they put out as you mentioned. I find special cars have special 'odors' that are at the very least memory inducing even if not necessarily pleasant.

    When you press the sprayer does it make a horn noise?
    I don’t understand.It is so vast that surpasses all understanding.Understanding is always limited.But not understanding can have no boundaries.I feel like I'm much more complete when I don't understand.Not understanding,like I say,is a gift.Not understanding,but not as a simple-minded.The good thing is to be intelligent and not understand.It's a strange blessing, like having craziness without being crazy.It is a meek disinterest,it is a stupid sweetness.
