Perfume for Your Bathroom?

We've all been there: You enter a restroom and immediately get a whiff of a recently extinguished match. You know exactly what that smell means, and once you smell it, you can't think of anything else beyond what might have occurred in there just moments before. I'm not squeamish about human odors, and I don't go out of my way to avoid them, but if restroom smell of any sort bothers you, may I suggest one of these discreet, yet effective deodorizing fragrance designed to be sprayed in the bowl post-business.

Fortunately, there's an option for everyone: If you're somewhat girly and love animal prints, Poo-Pourri (yes, that's really what it's called) makes Call of the Wild, complete with zebra-print packaging and scented with grapefruit. If you're a more no-nonsense, practical type, Just A Drop's energizing eucalyptus scent might be your thing. And if you're a stylish sort, the chicest option in this category, hands down, belongs to Aesop, whose Post-Poo Drops were made for cult French clothier A.P.C. and "intended for use after vigorous bathroom activity has occurred." At approximately $32, it's the most expensive of the bunch. Of course if price is no object, you can always buy one of those state-of-the-art Toto toilets, which not only provide you with a heated seat, courtesy flush option, and massage, but a built-in air purifier, too.
