Patchouli?

It actually looks like it smells bad.

They could have used this when I used to pick up barefoot Grateful Dead hippie chicks on the corner of 31st and 8th Ave. across from MSG in the early eighties.

You'd have to push them out of the car almost as soon as you got them in with a free meal.

Put a different variety under each armpit, they segue nicely into each other. For the smelly hippie in your life.

Okay, so 38-40 years ago, you would drive around a very high-traffic area of NYC, luring girls into your car, the type of girls that (1) walked barefoot around Midtown South and (2) would be lured into a car with free food.

So homeless, not prostitutes.

For some reason, these girls were on the corner outside the U.S. Post Office, and once you bribed them into your car, you realized that they did not have a good odor, so you needed to get them out of your car quickly.

And yet, you repeated this behavior, including having a ready supply of free food for the next passenger.

Very odd.

Well, his mom (with whom he started the company in Indiana in 2012) is probably a Boomer, but he's a wannabe Boomer.  Wannabe something, anyway.  He was a college student in 2000:

"Nathan, the son, stopped wearing deodorant in 2000 after the first natural deodorant he tried didn't work for him. At the time he was a being a cheap, lazy college student and it wasn't until 12 years later that he started wearing deodorant again - his own."

That never happened. You are lying to impress people in a Grateful Dead deodorant thread. Think about that.

I went to at least 5 Dead concerts there, back in the day that was called a cheap date.

TheHighlandHowler: Patchouli?


Curried patchouli, with overtones of tired onion and yesterday's skunkspray.

TheHighlandHowler: Patchouli?


I followed the Grateful Dead from '85 to '91. Not a fan of patchouli.  It sounds like a noise you make when you sneeze..

"PATCHOULI"

"Bless you"
 
2020-06-20 6:14:08 PM  
Off the top of my head...

"Insufferable has a new smell..."
"It lasts for 72 hours and smells wonderful as long as you are stoned."
"My God, it's full of ass."
"In case you don't have time to go without bathing for three weeks straight..."
"Honestly, no one can smell the weed."
"It's got that GOOOD stank."

/Friends with too many Deadheads/Phishheads in the 90s.
//Almost thought that patchouli smelled good, but it was just familiarity.

Perfect since my armpit hair has a touch of grey.

Agreeing that patchouli is strangely absent.

Hmmm, do I feel like patchouli and bong water today, or falafel and flop sweat?

If there is a deodorant that works on your average Dead-Head than they deserve a Nobel prize.
 
2020-06-20 7:36:31 PM  
Be sure to try the Pride of Cucamonga scent: "You can smell it for miles around."

/for all the songs the GD did, they sure didn't do very many with lyrics about smelling things.
//it was either that or Wang Dang Doodle: "And then the fish scent fill the air, they'll be snuff juice everywhere"

I'd guess it smells like burritos cooked in a VW Kombi, with a hint of patchouli and worn out Birkenstocks.

TheHighlandHowler: Patchouli?


A local brewery used to have a beer called "Hippie Sweat"....and they somehow added patchouli and sandalwood to it.  It smelled like incense....the taste was okay.

The sign on the wall said "The rarest beer in the world because hippies don't work."

I always find it funny that the Grateful Dead, counter culture hippie icons, have there logo's branded on to more overpriced products that any band since KISS.
 
2020-06-20 9:19:37 PM  
Will it help you smell good so you don't drink when you are ready but grateful?

The 'unscented' one probably divides by zero.

One of the good things about the Dead, and one that I've always admired, is they understood the value of selling out and weren't pretending to be better than that.

"We've been willing to sell-out on all kinds of levels."

/Anyone who won't sell out hasn't been asked, is an idiot, or is an asshole.
//Merch is your friend.

It still has to smell better than what Gwyneth Paltrow is putting out.

Don't mock him just because you didn't think of it.

For the man who strives to be pretentious douchebag, but doesn't want to listen to a 48 minute out of tune guitar solo.

So, is it infused with lsd, or do you smoke it, or...? I'm just unclear on how this is supposed to get me high.

I can remember attaching window stickers with scotch tape to allow for removal one the way to a show. Signifying could be problematic in the day, now we can openly acknowledge that we're everywhere. We used to be targeted by cops, and now we're targeted by Amazon. It  is a better experience.

We always paid money to let our freak flag fly, but it was bootleg stuff because that was the easiest to find In the parking lots and campgrounds. Now some of the money is getting back to the band. We have a lifetime of music they made and allowed to be distributed for free. Now that the money isn't in recordings, they can make dime of touring and merch. I don't mind Bob and Phil and Mickey and Bill living comfortably. They made a huge and unmistakable impact on who I grew up to be.

/And did we sell out, or did the straights sell out when they saw how much money we have?

I appreciated a lot of things about Grateful Dead hippie chicks, but their perpetually black-bottomed feet were always a turn off.
 
2020-06-21 12:02:41 PM  
I second the sentiment that patchouli and sandalwood are missing -- besides, is there really an official fragrance of a Deadhead other than unwashed?

Smells like Phil Lesh
