Social media thinks the bottle for Tana by Tana looks familiar
Like many, many celebrities and influencers before her, YouTuber Tana Mongeau launched a namesake fragrance this week. TANA by Tana apparently doesn’t smell like “backwoods and sex,” “3 day old taco bell, weed & a hint of ‘have i showered this week?’” or “baby prostitute” as people suggested but instead contains notes of Tahitian vanilla, argan oil and “sexy” citrus.
“The feeling of obsessing over perfecting something for almost a year and finally letting it out into the world is like none other. I hope you love my baby as much as I do,” Mongeau wrote in her announcement post on Instagram.
The fragrance, which Mongeau was advised on by “mentor” Paris Hilton, proved successful with Mongeau’s followers, reportedly selling out in just 76 minutes. However, not everyone was impressed with the perfume, particularly the small skull-shaped glass bottle it is housed in which looked very familiar to some people.
“Am I the only one who think tana perfume looks like hot topic perfume?” asked Twitter user @_julerodas_ and she was not.
“I have literally seen this exact perfume bottle in multiple colors at hot topic... #tanabytana” tweeted @ablanly, while @ThyArtIsMemes wrote “All that money and the best Tana Mongeau could do was rip off a 5 dollar hot topic perfume bottle and call it “tana by tana”, the creative bankruptcy of big name youtubers never ceases to amaze me.”
There were also comparisons to Hot Topic nail varnish, Crystal Head Vodka, and a $5 perfume from Five Below. Many others felt that the bottle looked cheap. Twitter user @deefizzy wrote “i can get this perfume bottle from China for 30 cents...you'd think with Tana money and the care she seems to have for her fans...she'd at least come up with something custom and creative. #tanabytana” and @kalakardashian3 tweeted “Why does Tana by Tana bottle look so cheaappp. Still gonna buy it tho”.
Y'all paying $50 for Tana by Tana perfume when you could literally just go on a vodka bender, eat hot cheetos, rub fake tanner on yourself and then get some cum in your hair and then you've done it. You now smell like Tana.— Kayla👑 (@thatscorpioxo) January 26, 2020
