— 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.
