If comic book characters can smell good why can't they!?
A Connecticut-based fragrance company, Epic-Scents, is bottling up everyone's favorite video game characters and giving them their own smell.
Last week, Capcom announced at Comic-Con that the all-blue hero Mega Man is getting transformed into a Cool Rush juice.
"We really want gamers to know that we are making a fragrance that is an experience of who that character is. We're not saying this is what Mega Man the metal robot smells like, this is a fragrance that expresses him. There are strong ties between memories and fragrance. We want to tie that fragrance to that character, when you use our air fresheners you will remember the nostalgia of playing that game."
According to reports, Mega Man is the company's first trial run scent and is made up of "purity, bravery and masculinity."
The aroma sounds like it would be some stank, but apparently it has accents of tropical breezes, citrus scents, and a hit of musk, which seems nice enough to wear.
In addition to Cool Rush, a Proto Man balm is currently in the making.
And if you were wondering, the company was founded in 1972 by chemists David Bedoukian and Drew Corcoran who had the idea to create scents that demonstrate the essence of a character.
Plans to expand the line are underway, but for now, you can grab Mega Man air fresheners for $3 next month, and the perfumes and colognes will be available very soon.
We're just wondering if the odors even smell any good?
Having a stench of a sweaty video game character that has been running, fighting, and ransacking other figures just doesn't seem like it would be a sweet smell!
What do U think?!?
