Naked & Famous Scratch-N-Sniff Jeans – Denim elitist can get pretty annoying, so it’s nice to see that Naked & Famous is still looking to find fun in a good pair of jeans. After the success of their painted jeans and their glow-in-the-dark dungarees comes the new Scratch-N-Sniff. The Vancouver based company begins with 100% Japanese cotton denim and coats them with a minty layer scent. The minty freshness is released each time the jeans are scratched. The mint scent will eventually wear off, but simply wash them again for a new coating of mint. The mint layers are good for up to five washes, and gives you a little more incentive to skip washing your jeans.
