Smells Like Expensive Teen Spirit

A new French perfume by Etat Libre d’Orange called Sécrétions Magnifiques smells just like what the name suggests it takes — a combo of blood, sweat, and spit. [No tears? — Editor] Although the scent alone is enough to trigger your gag reflex, the $150 price tag will probably do that too. The perfume has been selling at Harvey Nichols, the favorite high-end department store of Absolutely Fabulous’ Patsy and Edina, but has just hit the American market at Henri Bendel. Kudos to Antoine Lei, who created the scent that flies in the face of what perfume is even used for — a fresh, pleasant smell to mask body odors. But gosh, doesn’t everything sound super chic in French? [The Sun U.K.]
