Have you ever wanted to smell like the University of Tennessee, LSU, or Auburn? Well my friend, if you answered yes to that question, I have great news for you! Masik Collegiate Fragrances has created a line of signature fragrances for ten universities around America (pictured above), six of which are in the SEC. These scents aren’t just random collections of chemicals with a college’s logo slapped on them either. No sir. These colognes were developed by traveling to each of the respective campuses and matching the scents accordingly. The below quote, taken from Masik’s official site, describes exactly what goes into the process.
Masik was extremely meticulous about how they created the scent for each school. They wanted to ensure their perfumers had a clear vision of what each school represented. As a result, Masik conducted campus visits, discussions with students and alumni and a significant amount of research. In the end, the following distinctive characteristics served as inspiration for each university’s “signature scent”: School colors, mascot spirit, traditions and history, landmarks and architectural style, campus trees and flowers, mission statements, college town character, and themes in the alma mater and fight songs.
Unfortunately, I haven’t had the privilege of testing the colognes for myself, but a friend has informed me that North Carolina’s has the overwhelming scent of pretentiousness with subtle notes of marijuana and academic fraud.
