Smell like weed all day with these cannabis-specific perfumes
Back in the day people used to put perfume or cologne on to mask the smell of weed. In 2017, people are finally embracing the skunky smell of the sticky icky.
Perfume company Xyrena is launching what it calls the first “strain-specific cannabis perfumes.” While marijuana perfumes aren’t entirely a new thing, Xyrena is taking weed scents out of shops like Spencer’s Gifts and giving them a classier approach.
Xyrena is releasing three unisex perfumes based off the following strains strains: Blue Dream, OG Kush and Space Cake, all of which are available for $74.20 (get it?) on its website.
While not everyone enjoys the pungent smell of fresh cannabis, it’s hard to not at least be interested given the description.
Blue Dream opens with the strains signature sweet blueberry aroma with just a hint of skunk and evolves into an earthy pepper scent with a lingering sweetness making the fragrance just as smooth and balanced as its flowering inspiration.
Killian Wells, owner of Xyrena, explained in an email why he decided to create a weed-scented perfume.
“I’d already created a handful of avant-garde ‘VR’ fragrances for Xyrena, one of the most popular is Dark Ride which smells like water rides,” said Wells. “I’m not a fan of the skunk heavy scent of smoked bud I do like the aroma of many strains prior to being burnt, so I decided to capture their virgin essences as perfume.”
While the perfume doesn’t contain any actual cannabis Wells says they include “natural terpenes found in cannabis are utilized in the formulas such as pinene, limonene and caryophyllene.”
Wells, a musician also created a song and music video, which he says was inspired by the scent Blue Dream.

Cologne that smells like weed
I’m a perfume junkie. Although I gravitate toward scents like patchouli and sandalwood, trying to find the weirdest smelling perfumes has always been a highly important game for me. As a result, I’m a chronic collector of perfume samples.
Scents just fascinate me (as well as satisfy my obsession with perfume) and leave me with so many questions. What goes into creating scents? What makes certain scents perfect for a first date, while others remain more suitable for work? So today, I wanted to explore the most unconventional perfumes on the market right now. (And I truly found some weird ass perfume.)
Now, weird doesn’t have to mean gross (although bacon-scented fragrances are the devil’s work). Weird can be sexy, nostalgic, fun, and even intoxicating. There are scents that satisfy the child in you, like Demeter’s Play-Doh fragrance and L’Artisan Parfumeur’s circus-inspired Dzing! Then there are the sexier perfumes, like Alan Cumming’s whiskey and leather dominated fragrance, and Secretions Magnifiques’ carnal but highly questionable body fluid-inspired scent. And everything in between for the weed and literature lovers among us! Check out these peculiar perfumes and, if you’re feeling daring, give some of them a try this spring.
