this is an off topic question

Hello, I'm a doctor, and I will say, it is not a good idea.
Most scents are ~80% perfumer's alcohol, and that concoction is not particularly good for your health.
But to answer your main question: No.
i know it would be bad and i’m not gonna drink it but you know when something smells so good you just think it has to taste good too?
Stay away from gourmands, buddy.

Nope, I think I learned that lesson with vanilla as a kid. Still amazed that something that smells so delicious could taste so nasty.
i know exactly what you mean i think we’ve all fell for vanilla essence
Not to forget almond extract, either. Yummy cherry sweetness? NOPE.
You pregnant ? 😂 and yes i have with Chanel EDP. It reminds me of a fresh subtly sweet orange alcoholic drink 🍹
i’m boy so i’m not pregnant but i’m glad i’m not alone lmfao 🤷♂️
You actually tasted it?
No lol the smells reminds me of it lol
Nah, my sense of taste is *extremely* sensitive to alcohol. I'm one of those people who thinks a drink tastes strong while everybody else is swearing, "You can't even taste the booze in this!"
Also, the first time I ever got drunk it was shooting gin. And in my mind, gin tastes like perfume. Unfortunately, I got waaaay too drunk that first time and have never been able to stomach gin since.
Kitty Dukakis, former first lady of Massachusetts and a closeted alcoholic, used to drink mouthwash and perfume.
that's a really random thing to know
Not really. It was in the news back in the day. This quirky post brought it to mind.
Really drink it? Or gargle/use it to cover up the alcohol on her breath?
She drank it.
You know how smell and taste are linked? I want to guzzle a swig og Prada candy. It‘d taste like a fantasy cup of hot buttered cream soda.
i’ve never smelled Prada Candy but i do love cream soda
Nah but I've heard perfumers say that alcoholic drinks are an excellent way to experience scent.
so get drunk and then smell fragrances?
lol. I guess some drugs would enhance the experience. I'm not sure about alcohol. Try it and see :)
The perfumers meant cocktails, sodas, shrubs. Flavor experience is intrinsically tied to the sense of smell. Alcohol, CO2, and vinegar are really volatile so they lift and spread scent very well. They're also good solvents, incidentally. There's a [bar in Detroit](https://www.castaliacocktails.com) that showcases the intersection of cocktails and perfumery.
It's always been a curiosity of mine, but I would suspect they would taste rather horrid given the extensive use of synthetics.
