bid on nole’s stank! + other player’s smells

I smell another enterprising fan: eBay is teeming with scentilicious auctions this week, including a sweat-soaked shirt worn by Nole during his win over Tsonga in the Aussie Open finals.

The shirt is going for a starting bid of A$4,990. Clearly, the ridiculously price is leaving a bad smell — as of this posting, none of the sweat fetishists have come out to sniff (there are zero bids). Still, I wish it better success than the half-eaten banana from the Davis Cup finals. (And really, if I had $5k to spend, I’d rather buy Arkel bags in every color.)

If you prefer your musk from an American, Andy Roddick‘s scent is available in a more conventional medium; a bottle of his cologne is also up for auction, with bidding starting at a more affordable $2.99.

Missed it? I didn’t even know he had a cologne. Apparently, it was launched in time for the 2006 U.S. Open. Clearly it didn’t take off. Has anyone seen it for sale recently (not on eBay)?

More scents: You can also have your smell inspired by Gabriela Sabatini (she has plenty), Roger Federer (here), or the love story of Steffi Graf and Andre Agassi.

sorry, jelena — we take it back!

January 31, 2008

Jelena Jankovic might have received more than a handful of demerits for that pink bow she wore at last week’s Australian Open, but she’s now officially back on our good side.

First, we’re still riding on fumes from her amazing leopard print dress at the SEWTA year-end party. And now we’ve head from a reader that she was toting a Bally Arkel bag during her first round Aussie Open match against Edina Gallovits.

Yep, THIS BAG.

It comes in red (above), orange, and turquoise — all in patent leather. Available at Bally stores for $1095 a pop. (Visit their website for more info.)

Alternative: If your heart skipped a beat after reading that price, then consider the much more affordable (but equally as chic) Lydia bag from Puma.
