Moonwalk Scented

In honour of Michael Jackson, who died prematurely but was able to accomplish a lot in his short life, including scaring the hell out of me with his groundbreaking Thriller video when I was just 7 years old more than just one scent after his name (Mystique de Michael Jackson, Legende de Michael Jackson, Magic Beat Unwind, Magic Beat Heartbeat, Magic Beat Wildfire, Michael Jackson Mystery - although only lists Mystery (2000).
I've never smelled any of them, so if you have please comment, not that I expect much from a celebrity scent.

What could moonwalk smell like? According to The Gap, Moon Walk would be “a sumptuous tapestry of soft, nuzzly notes like creamy paperwhites, vanilla orchid, nubuck suede, and a touch of clean musk”. I was searching for it at the nearby Gap location and it was nowhere to be found, so I won't be surprised if it's discontinued.

I would imagine a Moonwalk scent to be cold and metallic yet smooth. Not as sharp as other breakdance moves since it is so seemless and fluid. And it should certainly create the illusion of walking forward, while in fact it will be walking backwards (in time, perhaps, to an era when raw material regulations don't pop up on an hourly basis?). Just a thought... Perhaps notes of metal, milk and white flowers will do the trick. What do you think? Are there any scents out there that are particularly appropriate if you want to pull of a Moonwalk stunt?
