    A seagull eating a starfish smells like: “Tidelands, driftwood, downy bird musk, and the gingery spike of starfish terror.” marf, marf, marf... mmm... starfishThanks to ZOMGsmells.com, I am now aware of this…  and the fact that seagulls really do eat starfish.  This unfortunate seagull snacking preference and the suggestion of its associated fragrance got my attention.  Quirky worked to draw me in. I quickly found myself lingering on the ZOMGsmells.com website, looking around for the next odd thing to catch my eye, and I didn’t have to look far… ZOMGsmells.com sells unique fragrance blends, each curiously named.  Aside from the alluring scent of Seagull Eating a Starfish, I found gems such as: Coronal Mass EjectionKudzu Doom, Spacebat, Candy MechanicBaby Gorgon Birthday Party, and many more.  Each name just begged to be clicked to figure out what the heck that could possibly smell like. Upon clicking through on each name, I was rewarded with a humorous little backstory and image, along with a very specific description of the scent (the oils included, etc.).  Win!  Quirky worked to keep me browsing, increasing the time I stayed on the site. Now, the big question: Will quirky work to make me buy? Quite possibly… we shall see.  I could at least sample a “squee” or three.  (But, even though it got my attention, I probably won’t go with Seagull Eating a Starfish. I wouldn’t want to wander around my coastal home smelling of starfish terror.  I might get swarmed.) And, on that note, I leave you with a bit of my YouTube research: [youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EYm1kW4rxHQ]
