Try Elon Musk's New Fragrance: Burnt Hair
In a move that has shocked and delighted fans, billionaire entrepreneur and CEO of Tesla, Elon Musk, has launched his latest venture – a perfume called “Burnt Hair.”
Described by Musk as the “essence of repugnant desire,” the perfume has already proven to be a hit with customers, selling 10,000 bottles in just a few hours and earning over a million dollars.
This isn’t the first time Musk has ventured into unorthodox product ideas – he previously released Tesla-branded tequila and “short shorts” and even created flamethrowers for sale through his tunneling company, The Boring Company.
But why a burnt hair perfume? In an interview with Business Insider, Musk explained that his own personal scent preferences inspired him He stated: “I like the smell of burning things – wood fires, Marshall amps when they get too hot… And burnt hair is definitely in there too. It’s kind of an acquired taste, but I really love it.”
Musk also revealed that the fragrance was made using high-quality essential oils extracted from actual burnt hair samples provided by himself and his team members at Tesla and SpaceX.
The release of “Burnt Hair” comes at a time when luxury fragrances are becoming niche increasingly experimental – just last year, French fashion house Vêtements collaborated with French perfumery Etat Libre d’Orange to create a scent called “Chloroform,” which was described as smelling like “chloroform soaked cotton pad on someone's skin after dental surgery."
With its unique aroma and Musk’s influence as one of the world’s most successful business leaders, it looks like “Burnt Hair” might be the next must-have scent for those looking for something out-of-the-ordinary to add to their collection. The perfume is set to start shipping in the first quarter of 2023 – we can only imagine the buzz surrounding its release.
