The Boring Company, a multibillion-dollar tunneling startup led by Elon Musk,  debuted a perfume product called “Burnt Hair” on Oct. 11 and sold more than 10,000 bottles in just a few hours, earning $1 million in revenue.

“The essence of repugnant desire,” reads its landing page. The fragrance costs $100 a bottle and is expected to start shipping in the first quarter of 2023, according to the website.

Musk first touted the perfume in September, tweeting, “Stand out in a crowd! Get noticed as you walk through the airport.”

“With a name like mine, getting into the fragrance business was inevitable,” he tweeted on Oct. 11.

Elon already runs four companies that lead or are among the leaders in their sectors. Tesla  (TSLA)  is No. 1 in electric vehicles and in development of self-driving cars. The Austin group is also developing Optimus, a humanoid robot to replace labor.

SpaceX aims to conquer space and, particularly, Mars, where Musk promises that humans will be able to live in the next few years. 

Neuralink, a company Musk launched in 2016, designs and installs brain-machine interfaces. The technology aims to strengthen our cognitive abilities by enabling us to interact directly with our brains. The billionaire has promised updates about Neuralink on Halloween.

Boring Co. is an infrastructure-services company. It digs tunnels, in Las Vegas in particular, to relieve traffic jams. 

He is in the process of acquiring the microblogging network Twitter  (TWTR) .

Musk also finds time to play a role in global geopolitics. For example, he proposed a plan to end Russia’s escalating war on Ukraine.
