Scent of a half-orc

http://www.kawaiianpunch.com/2011/04...only-1750.html

This is a random website that somehow appeared on my page, and I thought I should post it here for everyone to laugh.

Quote:
In order for the perfume to sell, it must embody- or at least be branded with- something that the average would want to emulate.
Like an orc?

Quote:
If you've ever wondered what an orc, half-elf, paladin, or neutral alignment smells like, then today is your lucky day!
The "neutral alignment" sounds like WW (well, more like the rules to it, on the sticky thread).

And, to cap it off,



Quote:
And who wouldn't want to smell like these fancy gentlemen?
I had a laughing fit over this.



Anyway, read for yourself, I won't ruin it anymore for you.

Perfumes for D&D geeks?

Oh my goodness, who buys that???

Although my second thought that these would be hilarious gifts for geeky friends...

Anyway, it's also worth a laugh to follow a link to the online store the article discusses and scroll down the page to see the selection and the description of the scents. Anyone here who would like to buy a perfume with halfling scent - porridge, kukui nuts and pastry crumbs?

And that's not even tho worst or the funniest. Gosh these things must smell ghastly!

I think it's only a mock advertisement, but it's still funny.

My favourite is the Dwarf one - Iron filings and chips of stone, Styrian Golding hops, and soot-covered leather! How mad a fanatic one should be in order to actually use that?

Some of them are hilarious...Fighter sounds like it would smell disgusting though: Leather, musk, blood, and steel.

Elf doesn't sound half bad though...Pale golden musk, honeycomb, amber, parma violet, hawthorne bark, aspen leaf, forest lily, life everlasting, white moss, and a hint of wild berry.

The site is rather interesting. They also have scents inspired by Alice in Wonderland, The Seven Sins, Dorian Gray, and The Last Unicorn, to name a few.

Should the Downs capitalise on this idea with Scent of narfforc?
