The Chicago Cubs made a splash on April Fools’ Day when they debuted their new “Scents of Wrigley” collection as a humorous gag, but now the team is taking things to another level.

On Sunday, the Cubs revealed that they would be selling limited quantities of the colognes at Wrigley Field beginning on Monday to coincide with the home opener. The scents, known as “Leather,” “Ivy,” and “Dirt,” and will be available while supplies last, according to the team. The ad became an instant hit when it debuted last week, as Cole Hamels, Anthony Rizzo, and Pedro Strop modelled the scents:

Random sensory quotes

Is it not curious, that so vast a being as the whale should see the world through so small an eye, and hear the thunder through an ear which is smaller than a hare’s? But if his eyes were broad as the lens of Herschel’s great telescope; and his ears capacious as the porches of cathedrals; would that make him any longer of sight, or sharper of hearing? Not at all.-Why then do you try to ‘enlarge’ your mind? Subtilize it.
