Random Thing: Perfumes

You can get ideas in the most unlikely of places, in this case it was when listen to the Thought Eater podcast, I misheard the host Froth when he said “Pick your OSR clone of choice” and thought he said “Pick your OSR cologne of choice.” I realised my error pretty quickly but–the more I thought about it–the more the idea of random colognes appealed to me, so I decided to put together a series of linked random tables.
