The O.C. Merchandise: The O.C. For Him Cologne

Ah yes TV show merchandise! When a TV show is a hit, opportunity comes knocking to capitalize on the large audience and start selling branded TV show products to the masses. This happened especially a lot for The O.C one of which turned out to be a O.C. cologne! In 2006 a company called AMC Beauty came out with a men's cologne called "O.C. For Him". It smells great and whenever I take a whiff of it I imagine this is what the pool house bathroom smells like. Heck Ryan probably bathed in the stuff before attending the Newport social scene. "Did I hear you were from Canada!", "Yes you did". The cologne features strong notes of amber and musk, giving it a sophisticated confident scent that works for any occasion. The bottle and box features a cool blue water like design that is very O.C..However this cologne is hard to come and practically a collectors item these days which I can assume is because they don't make it anymore. There's guys all across America holding out, spraying this bad boy only once a month to make it last longer! So if you're looking to score this stuff in the wild via your favorite box store think again! But fear not my friends - a quick google search reveals a couple of places that you can still score this cologne brand new sealed in box! Per my research the best place is eBay, with a couple of listings currently for sale and can be had for under 20 bucks with free shipping - which is probably costs as much as a crab leg at the Crab Shack, so this is a no brainer! So get it while the getting's good, buy it and don't look back, its the gift that keeps on giving, one spray at a time!



The backside reads: "Treat yourself to the fresh, masculine scent of The O.C. FOR HIM. A sophisticated, charismatic expression of Southern California's casual cool for a whole lot of clean and sexy to provide the right stuff for smelling your best any time of day."

Love the bit of brain washing near the bottom "Tune into FOX and don't miss a moment of "The OC"!" It also features shameless links to and Surprisingly enough this magic pimp juice was created in the USA!
