Mobiado and Bissol Perfume No. 919 New Cosmetics
Hold your breath, city girls. Your male colleagues are about to be
shrouded under a bouquet of mandarin, juniper berry and elemi. You see,
luxe mobile maker Mobiado and Bissol, the fine fragrance folks, have
teamed up to create Perfume No. 919, the first fragrance designed for
the "sophisticated luxury mobile phone user"...
The scent is specifically pour homme, so whether that implies that
women do not fall within this category or simply that our stylish
smelly is still in the pipeline remains to be seen.
Anyhow, the limited edition fashion fume comes in a glossy black
aluminium container that has been crafted so as to not look like a
perfume bottle at all. (Apparently, blatant bottles are so last
season.) Bound to sell by the crate on Sloane Street, the vessel is
engraved with the Mobiado logo and, of course, a serial number to
confirm its individuality.
The scent itself has been described as "a clean, fresh, youthful
scent with top notes of mandarin, juniper berry, elemi; middle notes of
white musk, bamboo, oakmoss; and base notes of vanilla, cedarwood,
sandalwood". We have no idea what that translates into in layman's
terms - for all we know it could be a recipe for disaster - but we'll
let you know once we catch a whiff of the next mobile phone-bearing,
suit-wearing bloke we come across.
