Ein Stripclub aus Südafrika hat eine Reihe Parfüms für Männer entwickelt, die angeblich nach Überstunden, kaputten Autos oder Segelturns riechen und damit ihr Alibi glaubhafter machen sollen. Garantiert nutzlos, aber schöner PR-Stunt: „The fragrances, aimed primarily at men are entitled: ‘My Car Broke Down’ with the scent of fuel, burnt rubber, grease and steel; ‘We Were Out Sailing’ with the scent of fresh ocean spray, sea salt, aqua and cotton rope; ‘I Was Working Late’ with the scent of coffee, wool suits, cigarettes and ink“.
A range of perfumes and colognes launched by a strip club aims to recreate the scents of commonly-used excuses given by men who are trying to explain to their other halves where they have been all evening. The Alibi range can mask the smell of a heavy night with aromas linked to more wholesome activities.
For example, My Car Broke Down is said to recreate the scent of fuel, burnt rubber, grease and steel, while I Was Working Late packs the odour of coffee, wool suits, cigarettes and ink. The three fragrances, which cost £24 a bottle, were launched by South African lap dancing club Mavericks, which said it never expected the idea to take off.
