Eau de "Toilet"

Why anyone would want to pay money for this is beyond me

Inspired by Dominique Laporte’s The History Of Sh*t, “which analyses the theoretical and social implications of faeces, and its role as a building material for cosmetics,” British artist Jammie Nicholas decided to produce a perfume using his own fecal matter.

Speaking to Vice, Nicholas says his research into the subject led him to make a few surprising discoveries: For instance, that feces and certain white flowers share a common molecule, Skatol. “They’re just there in varying concentrations,” he says.

Smelling like crap doesn’t come cheap, though: A bottle of Nicholas’s shitty scent costs 65 dollar a plop. Pissing your pants in public will be quite fashionable after this.
