Elon Musk, a “perfume salesman,” asks for help on Twitter to purchase Twitter

Elon Musk joked that entering the fragrance industry was “inevitable” given his name as he announced the debut of his perfume brand on Wednesday. Even his Twitter bio was modified to “Perfume Salesman.”

Once again, Elon Musk has caused a Twitter frenzy while pushing his recently released scent, “Burnt Hair.” On Thursday, the Tesla CEO asked his followers to purchase the scent while bringing up his on-again, off-again attempt to acquire the microblogging platform.

“Please buy my perfume, so I can buy Twitter,” read Elon Musk’s tweet.

Musk joked that entering the fragrance industry was “inevitable” given his moniker as he announced the debut of his perfume brand on Wednesday. Even his Twitter bio was modified to “Perfume Salesman.”

The “omnigender perfume” is said to smell like “The Essence of Repugnant Desire” and costs 8,400 (USD 100). The perfume’s website describes it as “just like bending over a candle at the dinner table, but without all the hard work.”

Since April, there have been several turns in Musk’s attempt to acquire Twitter. He has so far attempted to take the company private, accept and refuse a position on Twitter’s board, and cancel the agreement altogether.

After claiming to be justified in terminating the transaction due to Twitter’s alleged contractual violations, the Tesla CEO has now revived his original $54.20 per share offer for the firm, valued at $44 billion.

A US judge postponed the Twitter trial last week to give Musk more time to finalise his acquisition of the social media company. Musk anticipates that to occur by October 28.
