Cannabis has become so ubiquitous that its smell is now being bottled and sold as “the scent of the summer” by one of Britain’s biggest perfume retailers.

The Perfume Shop has become the first on the high street to sell Carolina Herrera 212 VIP Men Party Fever, a cannabis themed scent which the shop claims gives the wearer “an edge of risk”.

The controversial fragrance, which comes in a green and blue bottle, retails at £59.99 for 100ml and describes itself as “an energizing potion of vibrant ginger & burning cannabis”.

The perfume includes Cannabidiol (commonly known as CBD), a non-psychoactive compound derived from the cannabis plant. CBD is not the part of the plant that gets people high.

Cathy Newman, The Perfume Shop’s marketing and customer experience director, said: “The new Carolina Herrera 212 VIP Men Party Fever is the scent of the season, designed to lift your spirit and exude the feeling of summer when nights are longer and drinks are colder. The scent adds to the warmth and depth of the woody fragrance.”
