Tommy Hilfiger recently released a new fragrance called Eau de Prep. I took a whiff of it at the Fifth Avenue flagship recently, and you can definitely detect a trace of tonic water.
But it got me thinking, what does a preppy really smell like?
Old money and even older sneakers?
Salt water and peanut butter?
Grass stains and Episcopalianism?
Leave a comment with your own snappy one-liner. The most clever will win a bottle of Eau de Prep. If I can’t get Tommy PR to donate it, I’ll buy you one myself.
Contest closes Saturday at noon. — CC
Update: And the winner is Thurston Formore IV for the following bon mot:
“They smell like everyone else. With their noses. But Prep’s noses are a bit higher in the air. As they should be.”
