Blog: Olly WehringEau de Stella? XXXX? Kronenbourg?

Olly Wehring | 31 May 2006

I went to a concert in London-town last night. In a room full of over-exuberant punters, most (if not all) of which were south of me in age, no matter how hard I tried to stay out of the melee, I couldn’t help coming home smelling rather pungently of beer.

Nice.

Upon my return home, the lady was, obviously, none too impressed. But help, for me at least, may be at hand.

A scientist in Scotland has created a whisky-scented perfume. George Dodds, a biochemist from the Highlands, has named the scent ‘Spirit of Scotland,’ and expects to launch it later this year at a price of around GBP75 (US$140) per bottle.

The perfume, which has taken three years to develop, uses special ingredients to recreate the smoky, peaty scent of a wee dram.

I’m about to email Mr Dodds with a blueprint for my ‘beer-scented’ Cologne. If I can first convince the lady that my stench is a sign of sophistication, that is.
