Cops Created an MDMA-Scented Perfume to Help Make Drug Busts
The fragrance, Xtacy, is supposed to mimic the smell that comes from illicit MDMA labs.

Weed-scented perfumes are old news. Now, get ready for a fragrance inspired by… MDMA?

Last week, Dutch authorities unveiled a new perfume that smells like the fumes produced from MDMA labs. The scent, called Xtacy, resembles the bittersweet essence of anise. Anise oil is often used as a precursor to manufacture MDMA in underground facilities.

“Smell is the most important way that people can recognize an ecstasy lab,” prosecutor Antoinette Doedens said in a public statement. “That is why we want to spread the smell over the entire country, so that everyone knows what to look out for.”

Xtacy comes in a bottle that resembles Chanel No. 5 perfume. Ironically enough, Chanel No. 5’s logo is a popular branding stamp on illicit MDMA pills. The tagline for Xtacy goes: “Because: XTC. There is a breath of fresh air.”
