Movie tie-in colognes might not be so distant in the future as we might have imagined...I stumbled upon the news that a reader of Cinematical blog named Jeff Solomon came across "perfumes for sale inspired by some of your favorite films.
Unfortunately, we're not talking about limited edition scents for Coco avant Chanel, or even Perfume. No, apparently somebody thought it would be a good idea to make scents inspired by such films as Bee Movie, Madagascar 2, and Transformers". (I assume these are the fragrances for which mr.Solomon provided evidence in the way of photographic proof; I kinda see how one would like to graft something of ms.Megan Fox onto them, although I am not sure it would be her scent necessarily). Thus reported Jessica Barnes, who goes on to note that "This isn't the first time that the world of the big screen has wound up at the perfume counter, as you might remember how back in 2001, NYC-based Demeter Fragrances released a limited edition perfume for Hedwig and The Angry Itch that was a scent reminiscent of hairspray, cigarette smoke, and cheap hotel rooms (kind of gross, but at least it made sense)".
Therefore assuming these might be official tie-ins produced by the major studios, thus cashing in on the mania that follows a huge box-office success, and not the underground product of hard-core fandom, should we be worried about the future? Do you want to smell like Madagascar 2 and all the zoo animals it includes? Or, wait, L'Artisan Parfumeur has already done that in their zoo-inspired (and terrific) Dzing!
