Michael Jackson’s Dead Perfume On Sale Soon:

by | 18th, January 2011

MICHAEL Jackson Inc. has launched a new perfume. To connect with Jacko, his legion of fans can open the twin vials of Ebony & Ivory and dowse themselves in a rich emollient of embalming fluids with top notes of creosote over a deep base of Ronseal. Also hints of wine gum, burnt hair, Pepsi and for that added authenticity a dash of ground monkey foot. But we are wrong. The actual scent is made from the flowers that grew in his Neverland Ranch in sun-dabbled Beverley Hills.

Now the cool kids who want to remember their idol can small of Knobcone Pine, Brittlebush, Hairy Purple Bells, Blue Dicks-Ookow, Morning Glory and maybe other native Californian species.

But how did Franck Rouas create his evocative scent? Well, he tells one and all:

“Two over-excited kids suddenly burst forward and asked me if they could borrow a pen to get an autograph from someone. I asked them whose autograph they wanted – and they shouted: ‘Michael Jackson’s family.’ I gave them the pen, along with two bottles of perfume and asked them if they could give them to Janet Jackson.”

And then:

An hour later, two bodyguards escorted Mr Rouas to meet the family – after Joseph Jackson, Michael’s father, smelt the gift.

It’s beautiful stuff. We only hope it sells and helps the surviving Jacksons struggle on in their bid to make a living…
