Man stopped at airport with grenade shaped cologne bottle
OK, so maybe Jimmy Ho's choice of cologne wasn't the smartest, not with Britain's airports on alert for terrorists seeking to spoil the Olympic party.
But the 25-year-old London insurance worker found himself surrounded by cops at the airport near Scotland's capital, Edinburgh, all because of his chosen fragrance.
You see, perfume maker Viktor & Rolf packages its cologne Spicebomb in a bottle that deliberately looks like a hand grenade.
Ho says security staff scanned his bag, took it away for several minutes, then asked him straight up: Did you pack that grenade yourself?
"I was totally shocked. The next thing I know I am surrounded by police and I just really panicked," said Ho. "I had no idea what they were talking about and then I realized it was my fragrance."
Ho says security staff didn't believe him and took the bottle away for a half-hour technical examination, presumably involving sniffer dogs, before giving his body musk the all-clear.
