Do you smell virtuous?

I'm pretty sure I don't.

But Virtue, the "world's first spiritual perfume," may be able to help me. It was "inspired by Biblical ingredients." What would that be? Blood? Tears perhaps? No, it looks like most of the ingredients come from Song of Solomon, the first place I associate with virtue.* Gosh, I love it when spirituality is commodified and offered for sale at $80

And I see that Virtue sponsors the Miss Anaheim Scholarship Pageant, an opportunity for virtuous young women to meet and show off their...virtue.

*I rather like the idea of virtue as doing what is right. But I fear that's not what Virtue, the perfume, necessarily means.
