If you ask people from Burkina Faso, India and the UK what disgusts them, chances are high that their lists will all include poo. "Probably of all of the elicitors of disgust that we've collected from studies around the world, that's the most universal," says Valerie Curtis, a self-described "disgustologist" and Director of the Hygiene Centre at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine.

Not German swingers though. :sick

Bugger.

It's deflating.

Plan B; bottle the smell to make the world's greatest stink bombs.

Now then, where can I borrow a full biohazard suit?

You're too late Mich, the parfumiers are way ahead of you. Who could resist a lady smelling of "marine, fecal odor"?


Ambergris is a solid, waxy, flammable substance of a dull grey or blackish color produced in the digestive system of sperm whales.

Freshly produced ambergris has a marine, fecal odor. However, as it ages, it acquires a sweet, earthy scent commonly likened to the fragrance of rubbing alcohol without the vaporous chemical astringency. Although ambergris had been highly valued by perfumers as a fixative (allowing the scent to last much longer), it has largely been replaced by synthetics.

:tantrum: Has every idea been taken already?

But it doesn't surprise me that parfumiers might use something like that. Perhaps next time I'm suffocating in an airport departure lounge thanks to the repugnant stench of the duty free shops I'll tell the young saleswomen 'get that whale vomit away from me'.
