This Fabric Permanently Smells Like Whisky

I don’t know about you, but I have always dreamed of being able to smell like whiskey 24/7. Today is the day when dreams come true. The Heriot Watt University’s School of Textiles and Design teamed up with Harris Tweed and Johnny Walker (who else?) to develop a fabric that permanently smells like Johnny Walker Black scotch whisky.

This should go over really well in traffic stops, parent/teacher meetings, conference rooms at work, etc.

The tweed carries aromas of rich malt, golden vanilla, red fruit and dark chocolate tones and has been designed to reflect the colors of the whisky ingredients. The scent is layered into the fabric throughout the finishing process and is permanently imbued in the tweed that will not go off even after dry cleaning.

This is all part of their plan to make sure that thrift stores smell like booze by the year 2040 isn’t it?

That second image is just weird. The guy looks like he’s channeling the woman from Outlander. Apparently he’s just ripped the kilt off some other dude and he’s just kinda having a victory drink. Whatever floats your whisky soaked boat, I guess.

I say, if you want to smell like booze all the time, just drink it.
