It's official: Punk is truly dead as Sex Pistols launch perfume


Fragrance and Beauty Limited has released a "Sex Pistols" perfume that has lemon and black pepper notes, and thankfully no Johhny Rotten stink.

It also has hints of: "Electrified by aldehydes, the fragrance exudes pure energy, pared down and pumped up by leather, shot through with heliotrope and brought back down to earth by a raunchy patchouli. " or that's the way The Fragrance Shop describes it. A bottle will only set you back £19.99.

Taglines used to market this are: “Is this the scent of anarchy?” and “Certainly, there’s a revolution in this bottle.” Malcolm McLaren is reportedly laughing his head off in his grave.

    Say it ain't so! What's next? "Sex Pistols" spring water to wash off the pole cat smell when, 'hints of: "Electrified by aldehydes.." ' and sweat mix. Where is my rocking chair?
