WHAT: Playboy VIP Eau de Toilette
WHY: Despite the super classy packaging, the scent smells like a combo of Rap Musk (remember those neon cans of body spray designed for the “fly girls of today’s hip-hop scene”?) and the disinfectant that Hef uses on the Grotto. On the upside, the aviator sunglasses, which were non-Playboy swag that arrived separately, act as an eye shield to protect wearers from potentially hazardous fumes.
