27th Precinct by Jerry Orbach: Notes of pepperoni and shoe polish on an instant coffee base. Leathery, minimal, and cost-effective, this fragrance feels like a big, crusty hug...

Mmmm. I'd wear Fryday I'm in Love.

Orbach's scent should have a hint of Dewar's as well.

Oooh can we do our own?

Desperation by Ann Coulter: A Pond's age-defying base infused with notes of formaldehyde, bleach and cold sweat, stirred with a live stick insect and applied after having a two-olive martini emptied on your head by an NRA lobbyist intern.

Ohh, missing from that list: Shatner's "Prime Directive"- which should smell like space!

Smug Tangent by Tucker Carlson: Notes of stale frat-house carpet and airless think tank accent a deep enduring base of rank privilege. The exact scent of a limp high five. Sold only after its best-before date.

Flattened by Thomas Friedman: A blend of exotic stale sandalwood and imitation frankinsense, aerated in a developing world taxi and aged in Lufthansa's business-class compartment. Suitable for Davos summits or as a substitute for ether in minor day surgery.

(Note: Smug Tangent and Flattened are available together in a boxed "Fair and Balanced" set, exclusively from SkyMall.)

This is fun.

Xenu Spacecraft by Tom Cruise: A striking blend of unsalted butter and Axe bodyspray applied liberally to a volleyball and rubbed on your shaved chest by a 25-year-old Val Kilmer in a lizard suit. Subtle afternotes of jet fuel and pumice.

Transformer, by Lou Reed: A heady mix of clown-white, eye-liner, sweat, and leather above a base redolent of wood pulp, bananas, and silk. Smells intensely of David Bowie, but only once every thirty years.

All-One, by Dr. Bronner: A bracing melange of coconut, olive, hemp, and peppermint, folded inside a bright, delightful coating of batshit, hope, and Eternal Father Eternally One. Purple monkey dishwasher.

Metal Machine Music, also by Lou Reed: Thumbtacks. Just a bottle full of thumbtacks.

Tears of a Clown, by Jerry Lewis: A dominant note of massive ambition gone to seed gives way to ashes, misgivings, dust, and regret. The true scent of the fragrance is either strikingly perfect or debilitatingly vile, but we can never know for sure until everyone involved in its production is dead.

Some of these sound unbelievably close to actual scent descriptions over on the Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab site.

I though for sure that was an actual released product, but alas, no.

They've had Tiberius, Pon Farr, Red Shirt, Shirtless Kirk, and Sulu Pour Homme Excelsior!, but no Prime Directive scent yet.

Maybe they'll put one out with the marketing push for the new film. The Kirk themed ones are apparently hot sellers since Amazon doesn't even have any in stock any more.
