I missed this article but reader Mike D pointed it out to me recently. It's a humorous buyer's guide to celebrity fragrances from the Houston Press from before Christmas. One of the fragrances they "review" is Rush from Gucci. Here's what they have to say:

Fragrance: Rush
Inspiration: Take off, ya hoser.
Recommended use: Casual
Recommended age: Mature
Classification: Woods
What it really smells like: Eau de Ayn Rand and essence de Canadian bacon. (That's French.)
The Lowdown: While not actually endorsed by the band, I'm sure Tom Ford and Gucci had to be inspired by the Canadian stalwarts when introducing this cologne in 1999. Our only hope is for an endorsement deal that includes a triple live LP recorded in Uruguay!
