Fishy Fragrances: Is Sushi Cologne the Anti-Food Porn?
There's a lot of talk about how food can be a turn-on, and hey, we can get down with that sentiment. Our very definition of a panty dropper is a chilled bottle of sauv blanc and a dozen freshly-shucked (hubba, hubba) Hama Hama oysters. But that's where we draw the line when it comes to seafood and sex.
Demeter, however, begs to differ. They've just released their newest fragrance: a scent that smells like sushi.
Says the company in a SF Chronicle piece:
"Demeter’s Sushi is 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?”
Sounds...interesting. Then again, it couldn't be much worse than the overwhelming Cool Water cologne that every man bathes in before a trip to Drai's.
