How to Smell Like Iceland: Eau d’ Eyjafjallajökull

From Eruptions:
Nothing says “romantic evening” than the right perfume and what could be, um, more right than a perfume based on a eruption that closed the skies of Europe. I mean, you could think of yourself as Helen of Troy, but instead you have the odor that grounded a thousand planes. OK, well, that doesn’t sound too flattering, does it? Anyway, a company in Iceland is now marketing a perfume – called EFJ Eyjafjallajökull - made from glacier water from Eyjafjallajökull and it even comes with a piece of the volcano as a memento. Remember folks, Christmas is around the corner!
It's nice to know the dire economic predictions that followed the collapse of Iceland's banks ("they have nothing but cod") were premature, Iceland also has entrepreneurs.
