Whilst perusing my brethren in Halloween's wonderful Pumpkin Rot page, I found THIS post entitled "I Want a Halloween Cologne." The post was about the new "Tiberius" Star Trek cologne and 'Rot raved about how wonderful a Halloween cologne would be and the commenters mused on what, exactly, a Halloween cologne should smell like.
Of course curiosity got the best of me and a few Google searches later I was perusing a few different websites selling variations of a "Halloween" PERFUME.
Huh. How 'bout that?
Who'da thunk it?
Further research found out that there are not one, not two but FOUR Halloween perfumes on the market AND they're all by the same dude: Jesus Del Pozo.
The scents are: Halloween, Halloween Sun, Halloween Freesia, and Halloween Water Lily.
Sounds like this "Jesus" is a Halloween Addict.
As I've never sampled the scents, I can only judge from the pictures. Here's my Halloween Addict two cents:
a) I think the perfume called simply "Halloween" should be in orange and black packaging. Closer to the "Halloween Freesia" box. NOT purple. PURPLE???!!
I TOLERATE purple in my Halloween because it's the color of monsters and a damn fine flavor. But purple for your flagship perfume. Orange and black, my friend. ORANGE and BLACK.
b) The typeface font chosen for "Halloween" is acceptable but I would go for more of a Copperplate Gothic. For obvious reasons.
c) There should be a male cologne.
A little more digging and I found Jesus' Flash-iriffic website HERE. I guess the perfume has been on the market since 1997. Over 10 years. Hm. Must be more "CK" than "High Karate."
What's blowing my mind the most? That I had to create a new label called "toiletries" specifically for this post. Crazy times.
I hope someone buys it (using the Amazon links below MAAAAAAYBE?) and reports in on its scent. Though I am dedicated to my Halloween work, I simply can't justify dropping the 20 bones on something that I'm not going to wear... even to carve pumpkins...........
