“And… sold out!” Musk tweeted Wednesday morning.
In another tweet, the richest person in the world said “28,700 bottles of exquisite Burnt Hair perfume already sold! Only 1,300 left of this unique, limited edition, collector’s item.”
Though 30,000 people have already ordered it – it will be shipped only in the first quarter of 2023. So, they will have to wait till then to find out what the much-touted perfume smells like.
Last week, Musk called it “The finest fragrance on Earth!:

Musk is expected to complete a $44-billion takeover of Twitter by the end of the month. If he fails to do so, a trial for a breach-of-contract suit in the on-again-off-again deal will take place in November.
“With a name like mine, getting into the fragrance business was inevitable — why did I even fight it for so long!?” Tesla joked on Twitter.
The ad for the perfume shows a ruby red bottle with the name engraved on the front in script.
The tagline reads, “The Essence of Repugnant Desire.” Each bottle retails for $100.
Musk is no stranger to his jokes going viral online thanks to his legions of fans.
Here’s how netizens responded to the sale of the perfume:
