Ford Made a Nasty Perfume That Smells Like a Gas Station – Review Geek
In a survey paid for by Ford, the motor firm discovered that 70% of drivers upgrading to an electrical car will miss the scent of gasoline. Ford additionally found that gasoline is a extra standard scent than wine or cheese. So screw it, right here’s Mach-Eau GT, a fragrance that smells just like the co-worker who got here in after spilling fuel on their pants.
Ford confirmed off the perfume on the Goodwood Festival of Speed, a yearly gathering of “petrolheads” (Ford’s phrase, not mine) from the world over. Everybody’s favourite American motor firm commissioned this … “fragrance” to get folks excited for its Mustang Mach-E GT, an all-electric car that doesn’t scent like gasoline and appears much less like a Mustang than you would possibly count on (though it does look good).
Anyways, Mach-Eau GT got here to life by the hands of Pia Long, an Associate Perfumer within the British Society of Perfumers (Ford bought ahold of Long by way of the Olfiction firm). She blended chemical substances which might be emitted from automobile interiors, engines, and gasoline with extra conventional fragrances, like sandalwood and geranium, to provide off a dreamy fuel station vibe. An unnamed “animal element” was additionally added to the combination to provide the impression of untamed horses—fragrance is freaky, man.
Here’s the excellent news for all you level-headed folks on the market; Ford won’t ever promote Mach-Eau GT. Those who wish to scent like a spilled fuel can should do it the quaint approach, or look ahead to Bath and Body Works to go utterly off the rails with its smell-alike merchandise.
