Background information: the weekend of Geek Girl Con, all the Empire staff got a little Squees in our welcome bags. We each pulled out our Squees and compared: Megan took a whiff of one: "Ew, this smells like a wet hippie." Ariel snatched away the vial, inhaled, and cried: "OMG IT TOTALLY SMELLS LIKE A WET HIPPIE. I love it!"
I think that's a pretty good introduction to ZOMG Smells.
Like I said, ZOMG Smells makes fine nerdy scents for fine nerdy people! They cater right to the nerdiest among us. Check it: They have an entire set for physics lovers. Or fall in love with the description of the ZOMG Smells Triceratops scent: It's herbal, masculine, and Pangean: with bay laurel, dry grasses, white pepper, sun-weathered wood.
These scents leave the potpouri-grossness of department store perfume counters so far in the dust. I'd love to walk into Macy's and pick up a vial based on Magnacephalopoda Aesthetica, the ancient squid which some paleontologists think may have arranged bones to make art.
Not into octopodes? How about:
The ladies' goods are affordable, too: how about gifting a set of 13 Squee vials (for men!) for $30? You can also pick and choose any selection of 10 scents for $23. Did we mention? If you place an order of $50 or more, it'll ship for free, worldwide.
You should start putting together your order now — each of these vials contains a scent personally engineered and handmixed by Holly and Ariel, the ZOMG Smells team, and it takes 10-15 days to process and pack each shipment.
Long story short: we at the Empire are big fans of what ZOMG Smells makes, and you're going to fall in love with this nerdy business, too.
