Bruce Willis: the "manliest scent in the world"
Boing boing ^ | 7/6/10 | Lisa Katayama

Posted on 07/07/2010 9:38:15 AM PDT by MissTed

The COO of the company distributing this new fragrance — which goes on sale today — says: "I personally feel that the new Bruce Willis fragrance is the manliest scent in the world." Among the reported ingredients are grapefruit, pepper, and vetiver. Yummy.

Hoppe's. Smells better than any cologne or aftershave out there. 'Course, that's coming from a guy's perspective.

Scouts Out! Cavalry Ho!

But you haven’t smelled Bruce Willis yet:) I think he/they could have come up with something a little more original than just his name tho.

Vetiver smells divine. Guerlain has been making a men’s fragrance called “Vetiver” for years. My father used to use it. It smells very clean, sort of woods and grass and maybe a little lemony.

Vetiver is a grass-like plant.

I was gifted a bottle of perfume made of it, last week.

It’s one of my favourites now, right at the top.

The smell is neither overpowering, nor nausea-inducing. It’s perfect.

Vetyver Cologne

A modern interpretation of a spicy, aromatic classic. Vetiver, the legendary scent of India, is blended with sweet orange, nutmeg and tarragon to create this powerful, mysterious fragrance.

My young man loves the smell of gasoline and the swamp around the jersey beaches. I bet the new Mrs Willis may have had something to do with this cologne. I like Bruce’s sarcasm and sense of humor.

If they could blend the smell of a cabinet shop, black pepper, burned gunpowder, saddle leather, new car, and sun-dried laundry, with a hint of puppy breath, I think men would buy it and women would like to smell it on men.

That does sound lovely, light, manly. I don't care at all for most of the men's colognes in recent years, much too heavy and too girly.

(Do I really need to add that Bruce doesn't have to wear anything at all to be manly??) ;)

Gun toting women agree with you, wku man. Some lead down range, a little sweat and Hoppe’s #9 = romance. None of that girly smelling stuff for my guy! LOL!

My cologne is the smell you get when you have just “Q’ed” a pork butt or 6 hour ribs. LOL But Hopps is good too.

I don’t know what the best smell is, but one of the worst is that stale beer, fishing, sweating-and-sunburning-all day smell. Yuck!

a recent study, made in the volcanic institute in Israel, by Dr. Nativ Dudai found out that the plant is capable of growing in a fuel contaminated ground. In addition to that, the study discovered that the plant is also able to clean the ground, so in the end, the soil is almost fuel-free

The oil is amber brown and rather thick. The odor of vetiver oil is described as deep, sweet, woody, smoky, earthy, amber, balsam.
