You Need A Drink: Or Maybe Just A Perfume That Smells Like One

Would you like to smell like your favorite wine? If your answer to that question is somehow not “I do already, as I’ve been drinking it all day,” perhaps you’ll be into this wine perfume by Kelly&Jones (a clever expansion on its creator’s name, which is simply Kelly Jones). Inspired by the delicious taste of wine, Jones created five scents which combine wine smells with other smells, like those top notes of vanilla, citrus, pear, and bergamot that those annoying wine menus always promise, but which I never detect because they made them up. (If wine really tasted like these things…well, it would be even tastier. But I digress.)

I’m a little bit torn on this, because while I love wine, it enrages me when things I’m not actually able to consume things that smell like food. But maybe it would be okay, so long as I kept a glass of Merlot in my hand at all times. Perhaps I’ll give it a whirl and report back.

    Let us know where this goes! And also where we can get them. I like to present my interests very strongly so people who meet me don’t have any doubt what kind of person I am… Like for example, “I drink and enjoy wine so much that I prefer to smell like it at all times. If you don’t like that, we probably shouldn’t be friends/make out/sit next to each other in this meeting.”

    On the other hand, wine perfume could serve as a clever disguise. “Have you been drinking?” “No, I’m just wearing that wine perfume, isn’t it nice?”

    Yes! Sample on our behalf, and report back! These are expensive-ish and I can’t find any reviews of them on fragrantica or similar sites – I hesitate to order perfumes without being able to smell them first, but YUM they sound great.
