I'd call it CO.

I tried the Eau d' Poe

I'd wear Hemingway Cologne.

Oh, I'd wear Dead Writers.  It sounds delightful.

I have something called Ayn made by Sweet Anthem.

That was better than I'd expected. Even the comments are pretty good.

I'm still grinning like a fool over the "undercurrent of lollipop" comment, even if it is pretty low-brow. :)

Inspired by their writings or by their aromas?

I'm still waiting for the cleverer Farkers to tell us how Ayn Rand perfume would smell.

Débauche

A fragrance, inspired by Marquis de Sade.

Comes in a bottle shaped like a shotgun shell.

I really don't want to smell like Henry Miller.

Cigarettes,Dexedrine and bitterness.

I wonder what H.P. Lovecraft cologne would smell like.  Must be something otherworldly, unmentionable, and contains ingredients that cannot be named.

And it'll drive you insane, of course.

It's an empty bottle. Make your own perfume, you lazy dog

busy chillin': Dan Brown?

Hunter S Thompson?


Chivas, cocaine and excellent home cooked meals (he never left the kitchen).
 
2013-02-01 01:28:39 PM
Has anyone mentioned James Joyce yet?
 
2013-02-01 01:29:24 PM
It smells like barnacles, you suck farks. Get your minds out of the gutter.

yes yes and we yes

Smells like blood, iron, burnt flesh, and animal fur

I was hoping you would reply. That is cool you knew him. Seems like one of those guys that is larger than life and did things his own way.

Bukowski's Mourning After Stank:

Whiskey, beer and cigar bits... De toilette.

William Burroughs:

Opium. That is all.

A Kerouac perfume wouldn't have patchouli, for fark's sake. It would smell like asphalt, pine trees, incense, and cheap red wine.

Maybe a little eucalyptus and horseshiat from the area of the Homestead Valley cabin

Diogenes: busy chillin': Dan Brown?

Essence of Nothing


If they're anything like his books, the ingredients are "100% real," but actually, they're half-truths and exaggerations hyped up to increase sales.

I actually have a fragrance sample inspired by Justine. It smells like the inside of a Catholic Church with a hint of leather. I need to get a full bottle one day.

As for de Sade himself, I would not want to wear a perfume inspired by him. He was even more obsessed with bodily functions than James Joyce.

This was done already, back in 1978: Anais Anais

My face when "Hemmingway" isn't a real thing.

That look she's giving him is priceless. And if you haven't, check out 'Born Into This'.
