Since our classmates' informative and compelling blog about the perfume industry has made fragrances something of a hot-ticket item, you all might find this new development amusing - or disturbing. (Or both!) A German company recently came out with a fragrance that claims to smell like a woman's genitalia. Its name? Vulva.

I found a few different articles with some compelling and pithy commentaries:
Jezebel
The Smoking Jacket
Some Dude On A Message Board
A video from Jezebel, comparing Vulva with Britney Spears' latest perfume

I especially recommend visiting Vulva's official web site, which boasts a video ad that is nothing short of jaw-dropping. The url alone is hilarious: www.smellmeand.com . But be warned! It's not work-safe!
