What’s Next, Silly Putty Aftershave?
[[G O O D S]] * Just in time for Mother’s Day: Play-Doh-scented perfume. That’s right, the aroma of that claylike compound you molded as a child, tossed at your siblings, and got stuck in your hair can now be had in 1-ounce, $19-apiece spray bottles. In association with the modeling clay’s 50th birthday, Hasbro Inc., the maker of Play-Doh, is marketing this perfume to “highly-creative people, who seek a whimsical scent reminiscent of their childhood.” I don’t know. Nostalgia is great and all, but I’m not sure I would want to be smelling Play-Doh wafting off my mom, much less behind my lover’s dainty ear.
