A bizarre perfume that smells like semen was inspired by the AIDS epidemic of the 1980s, the maker has revealed.
Etat Libre d'Organge's first perfume, which also has aromas of blood, sweat and saliva, launched around a decade ago.
Secretions Magnifiques received a dismal response but has gained huge popularity as people buy it out of curiosity.
In reviews, customers have described the smell as being like 'an ill toddler', 'indescribably skanky' and 'salty'.
Now, its creator Etienne de Swardt has explained his thought process behind the individual scent.
