Breathe it in, ladies. That’s the smell of confidence — the smell of someone who’s not afraid to breeze past traditional aromas like cocoa, lavender or “ocean breeze” (whatever that is) and venture instead into the fragrance realm of the not-so-frequently-sniffed.
A true pioneer of perfumes is someone who says, “Hey, you know what? I like to smell like the animated masculinity of a 1987 video game superhero. Sometimes, with a hint of bacon.” Above everything, it’s the sign of a real innovator — proud, bold and fearless.
(Or maybe just someone really, really dorky. We’ll leave that for you to decide.)
Below, we’ve compiled some of the oddest and most nostril-tingling scents on the market — available for both men and women. Flip through the gallery to see the top 10.
Would you wear any of these scents? Any good ones that we missed?
