No Longer In Hiding, the Scent of Cannabis Joins the Perfume Counter
In marijuana’s march to mainstream acceptance, high-end fragrances are tapping into a desire for earthy, woodsy creations.
“Reeking of weed” used to be a bad thing. Now high-end beauty influencers are embracing fragrances designed to highlight the aroma of cannabis.
There’s one called Dirty Grass, an earthy $185 scent with 500 milligrams of hemp-derived CBD oil in each bottle. It’s the latest release from Heretic Parfum’s Douglas Little, the nose behind Goop’s all-natural fragrances.
