Jovan Musk and Patchouli Oil
Strap your Grateful Dead bears on and get ready for a magic school bus ride back to the late 60s early 70s. Everyone including your mother as a teen was wearing single-note fragrance oils, Patchouli and musk were the two most synonymous with carnal activities at the time. Cue Jovan, who’s iconic advertising for their proprietary blend of musk oil was, “It releases animal instinct. Musk oil is the exciting scent that has simulated passion since time began.” The copy worked and many flower children flocked to these more “natural” substances to blend with their own. Because of the high concentration of perfume oil, generous application also conveniently veiled the smell of devil’s lettuce. I’m getting very “Expand your consciousness” while lying in your parent’s partially finished basement vibes from this combo. Tapestries scatter the walls and Jimi Hendrix’s, Axis: Bold as Love is playing in the background somewhere. You rub these all over your body to anoint yourself before eating an entire bowl of Watergate salad in a munchie-induced fugue state.
Notes are self explanatory on both. In real life you will smell like Jerry Garcia’s guitar strap mixed with a little Kirsten Dunst in Dick.
