What If Chicago’s Hotshots Had Their Own Colognes?

After cologne maker Hawthorne recently created a fragrance for Chicago Bulls guard Zach LaVine, we took some guesses on what scents would be a match for a few of our city’s heavy hitters.

The cologne maker Hawthorne used an algorithm based on Bulls guard Zach LaVine’s “body chemistry and lifestyle data” to create a fragrance that’s tailored to smell good on him (though you can buy it for a cool $95). It includes whiffs of Italian cedrat (a type of citrus), black pepper, and Haitian vetiver (a variety of grass). We took a few guesses on what scents would be a match with other Chicago hotshots, past and present.
