Here are some ingredients lists (!?) found on the bottom of cologne boxes:

PBLU: linalool, alpha-isomethyl ionone, hexyl cinnamal, benzyl salicylate, t-butyl alcohol, benzyl alcohol, citronellol, geraniol, citral, isoeugenol, eugenol, denatonium benzoate

CKL1: linalool, limonene, butylphenyl methylpropional, citronellol, coumarin, geraniol, BHT, citral, tetrasodium EDTA, isoeugenol, acrylates/octylacrylamide copolymer, hydrolyzed jojoba esters

LC12: ethylhexyl methoxycinnamate, diethylamino hydroxybenzoyl hexyl benzoate, BHT, linalool, benzyl salicylate, limonene, alpha-isomethyl ionone, citronellol, hydroxycitronellal, benzyl benzoate

I don’t know if I’ve ever noticed those before. I thought they were like trade secrets, just the list of ingredients. I mean, you can probably guess, if it was your job, but not always. There’s an ominous fragrance listed as an ingredient, so there’s no telling what’s in there, I’m just surprised they have to list these oils/whatever. Maybe it’s some European regulation.

I hesitate to get Real Scared because I know benzene is dangerous so something like benzyl benzoate sounds Double Dangerous, but I think you’re just pattern matching on a totally wrong level, like saying Sodium Is Bad and trying to rid your brain of sodium ions (..yikes).

You know, you can almost be sure the first building that “looked like” a skyscraper fell down. But that wouldn’t invalidate the whole idea, even if we called the fallen building a skyscraper, too.
