How did I miss this one?
KEBAB SCENTED PERFUME. The cast of Geordie Shore have launched their own perfume, but it's not likely to fly off the shelves.
L’eau de Geordie is the first kebab-scented fragrance to hit the market.
The reality stars first introduced the scent in a spoof perfume advertisement (but after being) inundated with enquiries from fans eager to find out when the perfume was going to hit the shelves, MTV UK are keen to launch the fragrance in time for Valentine’s Day and have been approached by potential retailers about selling the perfume in their stores.
'Although the finished product is reminiscent of a Doner kebab, surprisingly the smell is delicate and fresh; I wouldn’t be shocked to hear that it takes off commercially.' (said Robin Taylor, Managing director at The Perfume Studio). - Alanah Eriksen, The Mail On-Line (26/01/2012)
And now for two articles about Supermarket giants, Sainsbury's.
A woman was challenged to prove her age to buy teaspoons after supermarket checkout staff warned they could be 'drug paraphernalia'.
"I could not understand what the problem was" said Ms Zuke. "When the supervisor said it was because they could be used as drug paraphernalia I was completely shocked.
"I would imagine the vast majority of spoons sold by Sainsbury's are used for nothing more nefarious than stirring a cup of tea. Having to prove I was over 18 to buy them seemed total madness." - The Telegraph (30/01/2012)
