Spotted on the way back from the airport: Mandarine Duck, the new fragrance for men.

God, do I *wish* I were a fly on the wall in that brainstorming meeting.

What kind of guy would want to smell like something named after a dish in a Chinese Restaurant ? Which woman would ever go “God, you smell of ducks and it turns me on” ? (Hint: ducks typically smell like duck poo or pond scum).

  1. According to people in the know – mandarine ducks are a symbol for love or lovers in China.
    BTW, I’ve never heard of any dish named “Mandarine duck” (Peking duck, Schezuan duck I have heard of) so I’m curious as to what it is :)

  2. I assumed it’d smell of oranges — which is probably not much better…

  4. @Jeff: Barcelona.

    @pel: probably the same as peking duck, but slightly sweeter.
