If Psy Ko’s enthusiasm for creating artisanal scented products based on Bushwick was any indication, one would have imagined that the latest artist/business owner to create aromas inspired by Brooklyn would be right on top of Bushwick’s dick. Not so. In fact, hand cream concocter Margery Hayt-B’wick is avidly refusing to mix a scent based on the youth-friendly neighborhood.

Not Bushwick, that's for sure.

Not Bushwick, that’s for sure.

“Ever since I made intoxicating scented hand creams based on areas throughout Brooklyn including Red Hook, Crown Heights, beautiful Bedford-Stuyvesant and even Windsor Terrace, people from Bushwick have been up my ass to make one tailored to their neighborhood. To which I respond, ‘And what aromas would I mix together for that, huh? Discarded pizza ingredients and garbage-loving rats?’ There is absolutely no way I would taint the integrity of my company in that way.”

The company in question, Hands of Brooklyn, has only been around for two months, and already Hayt-B’wick is causing controversy with this vehement refusal. Even former star of The Addams Family, The Thing, now a Bushwick resident, was upset by the snub. The Thing signed, “I love Hands of Brooklyn hand creams, but I can’t really enjoy them knowing it’s not the smell of my own neighborhood.” Local business Better Than Sex has caused further controversy after its re-branding by choosing to defy Bushwickian ire and sell Hands of Brooklyn’s other Brooklyn-themed hand creams at the store. “If there’s a demand, I supply,” shrugged owner Marka Territori. Thus far, however, don’t no Bushwickian want nothin’ to do with the likes of, ugh, Williamsburg hand cream.
