Have you always wanted to smell like a B-list Hollywood actress that is as famous for her botched boob job as she is for her films? Well, today is your lucky day.

Tara Reid, of “American Pie” fame – and now, more recently the “Sharknado” franchise – has launched her own perfume. Shark by Tara is on sale for a whopping $24.95 (seriously, that much?) at Reid’s website. But hurry, because the site says this deal is only an “introductory price.” Plus, we’re expecting that demand is gonna be off the charts because who doesn’t want to smell like Tara Reid battling sharks in a tornado?

According to the site, the scent is a “light and refreshing perfume perfect for day-to-day wear” and allows you to “become the hunter.” We’re not sure exactly what is in the perfume, although the website lists “lavender-colored flowers” among its ingredients, so, there’s that.

This has been a big week for Reid. First, Syfy announced that “Sharknado 2” captured millions of viewers and set a Twitter record, and now she joins the ranks of dozens of other celebs and boy bands in hawking her own “designer” fragrance.
