Burnt Hair Perfume Has Arrived


Finally, it has arrived. And so concludes my personal saga with The Boring Company's latest gimmick product, Burnt Hair perfume. I'll say this, it certainly wasn't worth the wait. But the box finally showed up at my door after almost 9 months of waiting.

It's a nice enough packaging and presentation, albeit a bit cheap-feeling. But under the hood is a tell-tale preview of the scent, "repugnant desire" as it describes itself.

So was it as offensive to the olfactory as it claims to be?

Yes, it smells horrible. Mission accomplished, I guess. As I recall, this cost $100 and sold-out within a few days. Why would anyone want this? Why was I myself in such a rush to get this item? I FOMO'ed into getting this "limited edition" scent. And let me tell you: while it's great for my personal collection, I shan't be spraying this again. It truly smells like shit. 

But then again, I should be slapping myself for expecting it to smell like anything else. The card reminds you to "dispose of contents/container in accordance with local regulation" because they know that most of these bottles will likely be tossed right into the trash. Myself, being a hoarder of such odd collectibles, will be placing this one on the shelf.

I was curious as to what the secret ingredient is...isoeugenol, which led me to a Wikipedia search:

...so there you have it. Let's put a lid on this subject now, once and for all. If you want to save $100, just cut a lock of your hair off and take a lit match to it. You will experience Burnt Hair without the need for the perfume spray. Unless you're bald. In that case, you may need it. It's still sold out on the Boring Company's website (and will likely be forever as it was a limited run), but you can scour eBay for a bottle if you so desire.

Hell, maybe it was worth the $100 for the entertainment factory anyway.
