Father John Misty And Other Manly Musical Scents

Well, either we're soothsayers or Father John Misty read our bandles article, because today - just as we wished in that article - the Laurel Canyon-based folk singer launched a perfume line by the name of Innocence (which, if you've seen any of his videos, is a moniker that reeks of irony). Based on the post-apocalyptic video for "Funtimes in Babylon", he released simultaneously, we'd like to think it's going to smell like gasoline fires and hopelessness, but the short behind-the-scenes advertisement for the scent seems to imply it's going to smell like the icy blue depths of Misty's eyes and a 1970s disco boudoir.

If beardy sex symbols launching perfume lines becomes the new, hip thing, I'm going to be spending a lot more time at Sephora. Here are a few of the musical menfolk we wouldn't mind sniffing, with a guess at what their perfume line would smell like. You're welcome.

Matt Berninger (The National)


Perfume: Misfortune
Smells like: the woody scent of church pews and white lilies as you sit and contemplate love and death at a stranger's funeral.


Alan Sparhawk (Low)


Perfume: Mormon Lingerie
Smells like: cool Utah nights of longing for things from which you swore to abstain.


Matthew Houck (Phosphorescent)


Perfume: Look At Your Man, Now Look At Me
Smells like: sex in Prospect Park and breakfast the next morning.


Jim James (My Morning Jacket)


Perfume: Your Mom Would Love Me And You Know It
Smells like: your parents' car, hot apple cider, and spiritual awakening via a creaky stage in the back of a honky-tonk.


Conor Oberst (Bright Eyes, Desaparecidos)


Perfume: Remember High School?
Smells like: hair gel, freshly laundered sweaters, your old garage.


Beck


Perfume: Sample
Smells like: changes scent based on the song Beck is singing at the moment, ranging from a just-vacuumed Mac store to spicy guacamole.
