No puns, please, we’re Cumming

Cumming.jpgThe L Magazine blog, “The Local” notes an evocative lede in the NYT’s Thursday Styles:

“WHAT does Alan Cumming smell like? Hmm. A manly, tasty blend of black pepper and bergamot with just a hint of Scotch pine, whiskey and – could it be? – rubber.”

We’re above making the obvious puns and so is The Local, instead electing to imagine other celebrity scents and their taglines. Our favorite was “Jonathan Safran-Foer: Extremely subtle and incredibly sexy.” Our only quibble with The Local’s post was not enough media-inspired fragrances; where is our Eau-de-Remnick or Smells Like Isikoff? Send us your ideas and we’ll publish the lot of them in honor of Canada Day. Which is tomorrow. Mmm, smells Canada-licious!
