Fashion: Perfume
1929   (+14, -7)  [vote for, against]
Money/stock-themed perfume

Produce an eau de cologne or after shave in bottles whose thick glass bottom is shaped like a chart of the Dow Jones Average around October 1929. The smell could resemble the smell of fresh ink.

[Disclaimer: Perfumes annoy me whenever they're strong enough to be noticed. The idea comes from sitting opposite an advertisement for Davidoff "Good Life" for Men in an airplane for four hours; the bottle's bottom there looked vaguely like a very low bar chart.]

Black Friday, no. Gifts to shareholders, yes!

How about a "2001" perfume in a black obelisk-shaped bottle (of course) but, to reflect the state of the NASDAQ, smelling of burning electronics :-(

[I love the smell of hot electronics] in the morning......

Different persons have different levels of sensitivity to the scent of ink. True, banknotes smell good, but only because they're...well, money.

But I'm a confessed bar chart man, so [+].

Of course, each administration would issue their own bottle, based upon the curve of the statistic of choice.

You could view the bar graph backwards (just flip the bottle around) for a more optimistic outlook.

I don't think anybody would buy this. The smell of fresh ink doesn't sound too appealing.

Actually, fresh ink drives males wild. Male octupuses at least. (Warning, not actually true).

The scent is a bit too depressing for me.
