Sushi Cologne Will… Make You Smell Strange?
Sushi cologne is a real thing. You can buy it from Demeter Fragrances right now. According to their description, it has “the fresh scent of just cooked sticky rice and straight from the seaside seaweed, laced with hints of ginger and lemon essences. Simply delectable… after all, if it smelled like fish, would you wear it?”
You know, Demeter, that’s a good question: if it smelled like fish, why would you wear it?? And if it doesn’t smell like fish, why would you call it “sushi” cologne? Even though we could have an extended discussion of what truly defines sushi (fact: fish is not necessary), why would you make people think they are going to smell like raw fish?
Sushi cologne sounds more like a lie you tell your wife after spending a night out with your secret other wife. “I don’t smell like sushi because I was out at a sushi restaurant. That’s my new sushi cologne, honey.”
What’s next? “Oh, I’m not drunk off my ass on saki bombs. I’m just wearing that new beer and sake-scented ‘sake bomb’ cologne.”
