Christian Post – The University of Notre Dame, a private, Catholic university located in South Bend, Ind., is reportedly planning to unveil a new perfume line, branded with the name of the institution, in time for the highly anticipated 2013 football season in the fall.
The university, which has a loyal following of football fans due to the past success of its Fighting Irish football team, has reportedly teamed up with the New York City-based Cloudbreak Group, a marketing firm specializing in beauty products, to produce this upcoming fragrance.
The fragrance will reportedly sell for $60 for a 3.4 ounce bottle, according to Sports Business Daily, a subscription-based sports news website.
As Commonweal magazine reports, the decision of the Midwestern university to work with the Cloudbreak Group on this product may prove beneficial, as the marketing group previously created a New York Yankees perfume and cologne which ultimately exploded into a $10 million business.
Now the Negatives:
Remember when Notre Dame football was known for their winning and grit? Do you think Knute Rockne, Four Horsemen, and Ara Parseghian ever thought of bottling the scent of Notre Dame? They may have thought of it but they certainly did not act on it because sweat–blood–tears do not make for a great smelling cologne.
I am not sure how much cologne goes for because I get that shit for Christmas and if not I just borrow my roommates if I don’t have any. $60 is a little much I feel like.
Notre Dame is the but of enough jokes right now, why do we need smelling jokes too?
I mean I am going to buy this because I am a sucker for the Golden Domers, but what are your thoughts on this?
