Demeter Fragrances, arbiters of such questionable perfumes as “Turpentine,” “Curry,” and “Lobster” are back with a brand new scent: Kitten Fur. Y’know, just in case you were having too easy a time lint rolling all that hair off your shirt.
This eau de Cat Lady will allow you to express your kitten fellowship without having to straight-up admit you prefer cats to dogs. Just spritz some on and patiently wait for all your co-workers and/or potential dates to notice that you smell like a litter box.
Okay, maybe we’re being a bit hyperbolic. (The perfume doesn’t detail specific notes like “urine” or “tuna from a can.”) In reality, the scent is billed as “the olfactory essence of the warmth and comfort of that purrfect spot, just behind a kitten's neck.” Whatever that means.
While some reviewers seem on board with the fragrance (“Like a kitten, the scent is difficult to characterize but it is a very warm comforting smell that just makes me sigh in pure bliss,” writes one.), others are a bit more critical of the questionable scent:
“Doesn't smell like a kitten at all! It smells like rotten eggs and burning fur! I wore it once and my friend literally gagged when she smelled it!”
“This smells like a cheap flea collar. Absolutely AWFUL!!!!!!!”
And perhaps our favorite, most elegantly simple review:
“y'all are crazy”
While we love cats (and all animals!), we think we’re going to stay away from this one. But we hope they shoot us a PR email when they create a “Wet Rat” scent—did you know wet rats smell like grape soda?
