As my buddy Denny said “now you can smell like an alcoholic without the cost or time involved to actually become one”!

While I do find bourbon to be a pleasant aroma, I’m probably not going to look for it in a Yankee Hill candle, much less a cologne.  But this product does raise some practical questions:

  • Is it a plausible excuse if I get pulled over on suspicion of DUI?

 

  • Will my wife have to start wearing a Coca-Cola perfume?

 

  • How early is too early to roll out your April Fool’s Day gag?
