    Yeah, because that looks like real dynamite. Being labeled “TNT Eau de Parfum” and all…

    Honestly, if you were going to plant a bomb, wouldn’t you be a little more clever than this?

      Agree with Rictor below…don’t think I’d be carrying this around, much less leaving it in a restroom!

  2. Rictor07 says:

    This is not a perfume anyone should be traveling with.

  3. Mitzi says:

    This looks like something Wile. E. Coyote would leave behind! I think it’s a PR stunt by the perfume company.

    And then there was this in Seattle:
    Really? What idiot would throw away a partial bottle of Spicebomb?

    • Robin says:

      Thanks — I missed that one!

    • Dilana says:

      Now I can see that someone seeing a bottle from a distance might not want to pick it up for a closer look and would want a bomb squad However, once it was determined to be a bottle of perfume, why subject it to forensic testing.

      Maybe the officer who placed it in a forensic testing bag, took it home to do some “testing” before a big date.

    I remember travelling in the 90’s when JPG first came out. Did get some funny looks when my hand luggage went through the scanner. Lol

    I’d carry it, along with my mace and my 357;).

    Also, so I can say, I am dynamite!
