Is AI On the Naughty Or Nice List?
We think we can let AI join in on the Christmas cheer because it has definitely done its homework. Beauty retailer Justmylook used AI platform ChatGPT to make a smart guess about what does Santa smell like. We thought it was cookies and chimneys but AI had a smarter answer even for that. Damn it 😶🌫️ Their suggestion had some fairytale, magic ingredients like a hint of 'North Pole Frost' and 'Giftwrap Accord’ but Justmylook got their hands on pretty much everything else to make the AI perfume a reality. From top notes of Cinnamon, Nutmeg, and Clove, the bottle also has some sweet smells like vanilla, chocolate and almond. Some earthy notes of pines and cedarwood seal the gift with a pretty bow. The brand has now released a limited collection too, ‘The Christmas Spirit Eau De Toilette’ - even the cosy bottle looks like it slipped out of Santa’s travel bag, doesn’t it? Thanks AI, we’ll let you onto the Nice List this year😜 Priced at £45 for 50ml, be quick and check it out here before they’re all wrapped and under everyone else’s tree but yours!
