It Was Only a Matter of Time Before the Sex Pistols Had a Fragrance

Ever since the smell of selling out was copyrighted by Liz Taylor back in 1991 (you know we love you, Liz—and White Diamonds), celebs have been churning out signature stenches in droves. Now we can officially add the Sex Pistols to the list. Teaming up with cosmetics firm Fragrance and Beauty Limited to produce their namesake scent, the once-infamous punk rockers have clearly abandoned their anti-corporate roots. The fragrance, which comes in a plaid-capped bottle bearing the group’s God Save the Queen graphic, contains notes of lemon and black pepper. According to its distributor, The Fragrance Shop, the scent “exudes pure energy, pared down and pumped up by leather, shot through with heliotrope and brought back down to earth by a raunchy patchouli.” You know, for those nights when eau de stale beer and B.O. just won’t do.
