Yes, you read it correctly. On the way home from running errands I was listening to an NPR story about various universities that are now offering colognes and perfumes for their Alumni/ae (or maybe people who want to seem like they are). I can't find the link to the original story, but there are articles about the scent for Notre Dame and Texas A&M.
I don't know about this. I mean, yes, they've done scents for car companies, cities and celebs and some of them even have been successful. I guess it only makes sense that if you're such a hardcore Sun Devil fan or Bucky Badger devotee you might pop the $60. But one of my besties is a hardcore Trojan; she has the USC watch, the car magnet and even Trojan floor mats in her SRX. I don't know that she'd be spritzing herself with "Trojan Woman" any time soon.
I guess the publicity was more than the company that produces them could handle- you get a "bandwidth limit exceeded" as of today, Tuesday the 25th ay the company website. Their FaceBook page gives some info here.
So I attended the University of Massachusetts. I don't know what "Minutemen" might smell like. Lilac? Lily of the Valley? Apple? Cider donuts? A greasy omelet from the Red Lion after an evening of too many Rolling Rocks at Sylvester's?
What would your school fragrance smell like?
