New York Company In Talks with Ohio State About Official Fragrance

Ohio State Fragrance

Are you one of the millions of men or women who have lusted for an official scent of The Ohio State University? WELL, YOUR WAIT COULD ALMOST BE OVER. From

Masik Collegiate Fragrances has introduced what it calls "The Scent of School Spirit" at 17 large universities, most in the south and southeast. But it is expanding – and is in talks with Ohio State University's director of trademark and licensing services.

“I have had multiple discussions with Robert Cleveland discussing how we can work together on an Ohio State fragrance,” wrote Katie Masich, founder of the company, in an e-mail today. “The project is not final, but we are kicking around a few ideas.”

And while Masik may consider Brutus Buckeye, the Horseshoe, the Oval and anything scarlet and gray, the final product will be fragrant.

Here's to hoping the distilled salt from Brady Hoke's tears feature as a key ingredient.

Cosmo Kramer always has good fragrance ideas...I hope his idea isn't stolen again...

Most of the smells I associate with my time in college have been old, stale beer, but I don't think that would market very well.

Style Points has a nice ring to it.

Is there any product for which the University won't license their marks? It's not at all surprising that most of the participating colleges are in the south (come on, who wouldn't want to smell like the ESS-EEE-SEE!), but tOSU does not need to jump on that bandwagon.

I guess it cannot be that difficult to adequately capture the aroma of a crisp fall day and the smell of brats cooking in a parking lot, but the tricky part is adding in the smell of Victory in the Air.

Not to stomp on anyone's foot, but it was Brian Fantana, not Brick, who had Sex Panther...and I'll leave it at that.

I believe Ambergris is a waxy substance from the belly of a whale, and that substance is used in perfumes.  So maybe the perfume, from the salty tears of the whale up north, should be called "AnnArborgris".
Nailed it.

If you were going for the self congratulatory obscure pun fat joke trifecta, you did indeed.

I'll upvote the Earle for you, even if he was going for the dis of the obscure, fat joker's joke.

The Cleveland State version wasn't a big seller. They just bottled water from the cuyahoga and called it eau de fish kill

Go nostalgic and put some warm Stroh's in a plastic bottle and sell it as "Eu de Papa Joe's Cologne".

Not sure how I feel about this.

They better start harvesting Flounder's tears now, cause I don't think he'll be coaching in AA when this stuff hits the market.

My brain wants to poke fun, but I will own this.  I mean at the very least this is a Christmas present from Mom.  Guaranteed.

The U.S. Fragrance Association has already determined that the Ohio State scent will not be permitted to compete in its annual "Fragrance of the Year" competition due to its weak regular season schedule.

Funny how they started in the south and southeast making campus life a little more pleasing to the nose!
