Smell like Old Well with UNC cologne

Posted October 15, 2008

— A company has launched two fragrances targeted at alumni of the University of North Carolina, saying the scents capture the essence of the school.

Masik Collegiate Fragrances is marketing the $60 bottles of perfume and men's cologne online and through a couple of Chapel Hill stores. The company also has fragrances for Penn State, Alabama, Auburn, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana State and Tennessee.

The UNC perfume mixes scents like champagne, green apple, jasmine, violet, vanilla and amber woods – the last two are among the "base notes" that are reminiscent of the Old Well, according to the Masik Web site. The men's cologne includes scents like lemon, juniper, lavender and tonka bean.

    Sounds like the tarheel turtle is a tad bit sensitive. Not to worry, we know how you fellas ARE in Chapel Hill. Somebody give that guy a hug!

    What about Merlot and Bree (spelling)????????????

    Ahh, let the bashing begin. The Old Well still works, and it doesn't smell, as NC Reader pointed out. Riddick has CH confused with Carrboro, and your comment goes to show your intolerance of people. "Wine and cheese" is that the best you can come up with? That phrase is old and tired...In the long run, it's bound to smell better then cow patties, or freshly minted money.

    somehow that does NOT make me want to run out and buy some!

    They forgot the smell of the wine and cheese crowd!

    Actually, in all the times that I've been to the Old Well, it's never had a smell at all -- good or bad. Perhaps it would be best to describe it as the fresh smell of the campus lawns, which could be right nice in springtime.

    who in their right mind wants to go around smelling like an old, abandoned and useless well????

  • riddick Oct 15, 2008
