Smells Like Putin Spirit

As if butt plugs, man buns, and fridge magnets weren’t enough, Vladimir Putin has now inspired a limited-edition men’s fragrance. And, despite that it’s called Leaders and features a noble cameo of the ignoble Russian president with the words “Inspired by Vladimir Putin” in English, the scent is not intended as an ironic gesture, ironically. Rather, the medley of definitely-manly notes — e.g. bergamot, fir cones, mung beans — is a serious effort that’ll set Russians back 6000 rubles ($83). In fact, perfumer Vladislav Rekunov wants to present a bottle to the despot himself. Of course he does.
