Ed Hardy Skulls & Roses perfume shows up, nothing ever changes



It's almost Halloween. Are you ready for some true terror?


Two bottles of Ed Hardy fragrance showed up to Deal Diva Headquarters this week, and they're about what you'd expect. The scent is called Skulls & Roses, and in keeping with the indestructible Pantheon of Ed Hardy subtlety, the bottle is a skull holding a rose.

Ed Hardy teamed up with Elizabeth Arden (no, really), to make a scent for a bro and a scent for a shorty perfect for Jell-O shots at the club. The girl skull is white, because ladies are sensitive, y'all. It has strawberry, violet leaves, pink grapefruit, honeysuckle, magnolia, daisy, caramel, vanilla bean, white musk, and just a hint of "Grab the aerosol Rave hairspray and a Marlboro when the bathroom attendant isn't looking." The dude version comes cased in a black skull, because it DOES NOT FRONT, GUYS. It features bergamot, cardamom, violet, lavandin, geranium, amber, sandalwood, moss, musk and ozone. That's correct, ozone. That one is just too easy, so we'll leave it. If this all sounds like something you'd like to splash on for Sink or Swim, it can be yours for $55-$65 starting this month in department stores.

The scariest part of all this, though, is how little has changed. It's like it's still 2009, and Jon Gosselin is still going to creepy hotel pools with koi fish and exploding craniums across his chest and Paris Hilton is still a thing and Tara Reid is standing in the swag line at the T-Mobile party in a trucker hat. Perhaps Ed Hardy has more staying power than we gave them credit for back then. Skulls are pretty timeless.
