Smell like a Fraggle

    Bizarre merchandise alert! This may edge out the Fraggle Rock shot glasses as the oddest legal FR merchandise: Fraggle Rock perfume oil blends by Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab. Here are the mixes:

    Gobo: Tangerine, lemon peel, sugared pink grapefruit, and vanilla cream.
    I'm guessing they were going for colors on this one. Pink, orange, yellow...could use some plum, maybe. Do they make a plum scent?

    Boober: A fretfully clean scent: freshly-washed laundry, linden blossom, soap suds, and a sprinkle of vanilla.
    I like this. Very appropriate.

    Red: Sporty and energetic: sweet red currant, tangy cranberry, pink musk, and spicy pink pepper.
    I can see this. Personally, I'd think she'd smell like gym clothes and pond water, but that wouldn't sell so well. ;)

    Mokey: A gentle, contemplative fragrance: lilac blossoms, violet sugar, orris root, stephanotis, and osmanthus.
    Hippy-dippy herbs? Yep, this works for the character.

    Wembley: Innocently indecisive: white musk, banana, orange blossom honey, pineapple, and mint.
    This scent is more tropical than indecisive. It fits his wardrobe. Mmm, I think I'll have fruit salad for lunch.

    Uncle Travelling Matt: Dark chocolate, figgy vanilla, pear, and quince.
    I don't get the connection, but if this was ice cream I'd have a freezer full.

    Doozers: The scent of industrious cooperation: glittering crystals, soft soil, and radish dust.
    I...have no idea what that would smell like. But then, I have anosmia.

    The Gorgs' Garden: Radishes, freshly-turned soil, and soft herbs.
    So, Gorgs and Doozers smell almost the same? Who'd'a thunk it?

    Wow. That's pretty out there. I just like the idea of being able to smell "indecisive" or like "industrious cooperation". Copywriting is the best.

    **********************************************************************

    Imagined dialogue, at some restaurant a few months from now:

    Man: Oh, honey, you smell beautiful tonight.

    Woman: Thank you. It's a new perfume.

    Man: What is it?

    Woman: It's...Boober!

    The copywriters couldn't think of a decent blurb for Gobo's scent. "Um... citrus? Fruit? How do I link that to a leader-type? Ah, shoot, I got nothing."

    Wow, I would just love to smell like dirt...I mean "soft soil." :p

    I really do question some of those scents. They are pretty out there

    :laugh: Bear in mind these are the same people making the Smell Like a Goblin Labyrinth-based line of fragrances/perfumes as well.

    Erm... Gobo: Every morning, every day, follow your own powerful scent?
    :smirk: Maybe we should ask Manny for help with that.

    How about a Wembley #9 scent? A powerful blend of pheromones that'll drive everybody nearby mad with desire! Until it evaporates, anyway.

    See, that makes me question the love potion Marjory gave :coy: Isn't #9 meant to just attract the opposite sex, whereas #10 is the stronger blend that draws both males and females towards the user like what happened at the end of the episode? *Shrugs. *Returns Potions & Notions book to the library at MopFam's Magic School.

    "Lou" is a unisex name, so perhaps Marjory didn't pry, but just gave him a wide-spectrum potion on purpose so it wouldn't matter whether Lou was male or female. But it turned out to be a bit too wide-spectrum, as it also attracted Gorgs and Doozers.

    I personally think that Marjory was just in the mood to mess with the Fraggles that day. How else would you explain her giving Wembley a potion he didn't want that would only cause confusion and distress?

    Hmm, hadn't thought about that. Trashy potion from a trash heap oracle, yeah, makes sense. At least as much sense as we can find digging under the sofa cushions. :search: found a quarter!

    I was really worried when I saw the name of this thread. But I think it's kind of a clever idea.
    Can you imagine if they tried to do a "Trash Heap scent? Old banana peels, coffee grounds and a slight hint of rotting vegetation

    :confused:; This is the weirdest marketing trip ever! SMELL like a Fraggle?!Forget that the scents are all out there and kind of random...The whole idea is bizarre.

    Personally, I would have thought Mokey would smell like incense. Boober should smell like laundry soap...Doozers probably smell like radishes...Wembly can smell like lemon. I don't know why. Red can smell like..hahahah pond water and gym clothes?! GROSS! Naw, it'd have to be something you wear after a workout. Something light and fresh. Since she's a tomboy, let's give her CK-1. LOL A unisex scent. Gobo..hmmm he's harder. Maybe the axe? Bwahahahaha Old spice.

    See? Just thinking about makes me giggle because it's so goofy.

    Yeah, the idea of Fraggle scents is amusingly weird. In a fanfic I've been writing I've had a few Muppets enter Fraggle Rock, and one of the details I've omitted was the smell. Fraggles are clean creatures, taking a bath several times a day, and the air does circulate. But, still, with that many furry creatures that close together you're gonna have odor! To them it'd be a comforting, homey scent. To someone else it'd be like a kennel.

    Facepalm...

    we can't have a decent PVC collectible line, but we have this.

    But Boober's makes the most sense of them all.

    If you look around their site, Fraggle scents aren't any weirder than some of their others. They come up with scents for every darn thing. It's their medium. I'm tickled they decided to do Labyrinth and FR--clearly, they're eighties children. Some of these (Gobo, Uncle Matt) don't make an awful lot of sense, but some of them sound spot-on. I'd love to get a whiff of the Doozer one (how do they know what radish dust smells like? Did they make radish dust?), but I'm not paying $25 for it!

    That whole website's a headtrip. It's interesting enough, I guess, to speculate on that kind of thing but, COME ON! I'm not gonna pay money to smell like a stinkin DOOZER! And as much as I love Red and the others, I don't need to buy their personalized scent. @_@ Fandom can be scary.

    So, silly creatures can be scary, eh? No! Fandom sounds scary, but I know I am a silly creature. Duh! I sometimes smell like a fraggle without the scent between Mokey and Boober right after I clean up. Besides, I am creative and sometimes poetic like Mokey. Tee hee!

    Sounds like to smell like Boober all you'd have to do is wash your clothes and eat some yellow cake. I'm game.
