Company Sells Ridiculous Garment For Cold Noses

By Gloria Borger / lundi 22 octobre 2018 04:30
Would you ever wear a dedicated nose warmer?

Imagine if your mom forced you to put this on before heading out the door to catch the school bus. You'd be a lamb walking into the lions' den!

 

Well, we think they look insane, but maybe we're too judgmental. These things must be actually selling, because by all appearances, business at The Nose Warmer Company is going just fine.

 

The idea came to founder Sally Steel-Jones when she had "a genuine cold nose" one day. She made the first nose warmer for herself, and then started sharing her invention with others. Just like that, The Nose Warmer Company was born.

 

If you check out their website, you'll find nose warmers in a variety of styles and designs. They've got fleece, faux fur, wool, and more. You can even get them in the colors of your favorite sports team! Each nose warmer costs around $10 (£6.95-£7.45) and shipping is free in the UK and $4 (£3) everywhere else.

 

So they're not expensive and they come in a variety of styles, but they still look quite ridiculous to us. What's the reasoning in choosing this over a face warmer or a big fluffy scarf? Under what rare conditions is the nose the only cold part of the face? This is a one-trick pony... and an ugly one at that.

 

As a gag gift, we get it. As a serious purchase to enhance your cold-weather comfort, we're still lost. Help us out! Are we being too harsh on the little nose pouches? Would you ever wear one? Why or why not?

I’ll bet colors other than “The Rudolph” model shown could be practical winter wear.

When I need to keep my nose and ears warm, I wear a balaclava, but I have to be mindful that I’m rocking a ninja-terrorist-robber look.

It’ll make things worse. Before the nose warmer, people would put something in front of their nose and mouth when they felt a sneeze coming on.

Now, no one is going to want to catch snot in their nose warmer, so they’ll lift them up to let the mucus fly!

Or they would want their nose warmer to catch the snot, they are washable. Like when you are laughing really hard and all of a sudden joy turns into horror when snot comes out of your nose, no more times like that now

To be honest, my nose always gets ridiculously cold in cold weather. I think it has to do with Raynaud's, or else I have a comically large nose. I still don't think I'd wear this though.
