These clothes smell like Johnnie Walker whisky, on purpose
Usually, having the odor of alcoholic beverages clinging to your clothes means you've been over-imbibing or just plain clumsy with your cocktails. A new variation on the classic Scottish tweed fabric is going for a whiskey smell on purpose. Scotch maker Johnnie Walker and textiles maker Harris Tweed Hebrides have gotten together to create to a whisky-scented fabric.
The heavy lifting on the development process was done by Heriot-Watt University's School of Textiles and Design in Edinburgh and Galashiels, Scotland. The aroma is applied to the fabric using a micro-encapsulation technology that allows the scent to survive the dry-cleaning process so you can always smell like you just accidentally spilled a $30 bottle of blended Scotch on yourself. The scent has been named "Aqua Alba."
Italy-based fashion designer Angelos Bratis will be creating a line of clothing using the fabric. Perhaps Johnnie Walker and Harris Tweed Hebrides will one day offer even higher-end variations of the cloth. For example, you could conceivably wear a suit that smells like a $200 bottle of Johnnie Walker Blue.
No prices have been announced for clothes made from this fancy fabric, but a real Harris Tweed suit doesn't come cheap. If the Johnnie Walker jacket ends up being out of your budget, you could always get away with picking up a thrift-store coat and a bottle of Old Smuggler and doing it yourself, reapplying as needed since you probably don't want to actually drink Old Smuggler.
