If you are
sick and tired of giving the same old cologne scents year after
year, then this is the gift concept for you. Instead of boring
fragrances that smell like flowers, fruits, spices, etc., you
could give one that smells like . . . earthworms! Yes,
''Earthworm'' is an actual fragrance sold by this company. Another
one is ''Dirt.'' And here's a festive scent for the holidays:
tested the ''Earthworm,'' ''Dirt'' and ''Funeral Home'' colognes
by having some people in our office sniff them. The testers agreed
that each of the colognes definitely smelled like something, although
to be honest nobody around here has ever taken a really good whiff
of an earthworm.
In any event,
we are certain that these colognes will be a big hit for the special
somebody on your holiday gift list who likes to ''make an impression''
upon entering a confined space. (''What's that odor?'' ''I don't
know, but it smells like a corpse!'')
