Never mind the heliotrope... here's the Sex Pistols scent

14 September 2010

If we remember rightly, it was Andy Warhol who said that “in the future, everyone will have their own brand of perfume.” Or something. Looks like he was right as well. Or something. Following the bizarre news that The Sun newspaper has launched its own bottle of watery whiff, we’re disturbed to learn that there’s also a scent in the good name of punk pioneers the Sex Pistols.


We’re still waiting for our bottle to arrive, so we can’t give you an in-depth review. But we’d hope it would smell of 1976, piss, unemptied bins, sweat, more piss, beer and spunk. Or maybe it doesn’t.

The blurb says...

“Resisting tradition, fighting conformity and disregarding aromatic conventions it leaves a fresh, restless bite of lemon, sharpened and intensified by a defiant black pepper. Electrified by aldehydes, the fragrance exudes pure energy, pared down and pumped up by leather, shot through with heliotrope and brought back down to earth by a raunchy patchouli.”

Electrifed by aldehydes? Shot through with heliotrope? Bins and spunk then. God save the Queen - it's like punk never happened...

    Patchouli???? That is the most hippiest of smells. So inappropriate.

    Oh no - you'll have every Hipster in the UK trying to get hold of this... "Resisting tradition, fighting conformity and disregarding aromatic conventions..."
