Gun firm debuts scent at ex-Versace homeWELL, this puts a whole new odour on the SHOT Show, doesn't it? My now clean and sweet-smelling cherubs and seraphim tell me that SIGARMS is looking at "tactical bubble-bath," that when coupled with their complete aromatherapy line guarantees even the most aggressive operator won't accumulate any bad after-action reports, if you get our drift...
Smith & Wesson — as in "Bang! Bang! You're dead!" — is launching a men's fragrance named after itself, and SoFla is its early marketing, ahem, target.
Wait, it gets weirder.
The delicate nectar is scheduled to be unveiled Saturday night at a fancy party at Casa Casuarina in Miami Beach.
Beg your pardon?
Smith & Wesson Cologne is set to be introduced at the former Versace mansion. Casa Casuarina, owned by Boca multimillionaire Peter Loftin, once was known as the Versace mansion. It was on its steps that Italian couturier Gianni Versace was shot dead in 1997 by a man on a killing spree, Andrew Cunanan. He later committed suicide in a houseboat surrounded by cops.
Glock is testing a line R. Lee Ermey Signature roll-on deodorant in an OD-green dispenser designed to look like a WWII Zippo Lighter. Sneaky little Austrian angels tell me the deodorant is NOT mixed with antiperspirant, because, "REAL men sweat!" In a clever marketing ploy, the deodorant will be mixed with beach sand, so you'll always have that, "First grunt hittin' the beach" feeling.
Look for Cimarron Firearms to introduce their cowboy line of HORSE SWEAT NO SWEAT SMELL SWEET combination cologne, no-cal sweetener and linament for man and beast. We understand the Texas armmakers are "within hours" of signing an endorsement agreement with actor Ian McShane, who plays "Al Swearengen" on the hit HBO series DEADWOOD. The tentative advertising slogan for the new men's fragrance is, "F&%$ you, you f^%$ c)(&%$#*%...if you don't use this s%&^, you'll f#$^*& smell like c%&%^$#*&^ s&^%$#!" We smell an ADDY AWARD!!!
For a whiff of Old Europe, be sure to pick up a bottle of Beretta's Age-Old Essence, which actually incorporates walnut dust and boiled lindseed oil from their stockmaking facility, which began in 1526, mixed with residues from polymer frames.
You know, I could keep going and going with this...
