Fragrance line inspired by college smells

A Pennsylvania chemical engineer said she is working on a line of fragrances aimed at those who are nostalgic about their university years.

Katie Masik said her Harrisburg-based company, Masik Collegiate Fragrances, has already created scents for the University of North Carolina and Penn State University and plans to have fragrances for the University of Georgia, Louisiana State University and other schools on the market next year, the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel reported Thursday.

Masik said she visits the schools and speaks with students and alumni before settling on the scent that best defines the school.

I get a lot of requests for beer smell and sweaty football players, Masik said.
