Marvel Comics will launch 7 new fragrances in connection with the upcoming movie The Avengers:
Patriot Cologne ~ "Patriot Cologne, inspired by Captain America, pays homage to the confident, stand-up-to-bullies, hard-working average Joe in everyman. The cologne features hints of green lime and white pepper with finishes of dry oak wood, sandalwood and tequila."
Mark VII Cologne ~ "Mark VII Cologne, inspired by Iron Man, combines mandarin and jasmine with light patchouli to create a contemporary expression of "I don't play well with others" confidence, leaving you ready for whatever a genius, billionaire, playboy-philanthropist might encounter throughout their day."
Worthy Cologne ~ "Worthy Cologne, inspired by Thor, is a woody citrus cologne with a combination of bergamot, frozen ginger and wheatgrass blended with a hint of fresh natural grapefruit and layered with cypress, creating a deep dry masculine almost "God-like" musk."
SMASH! ~ "SMASH!, inspired by Hulk, is a clean scent with clear top notes of water lily and nutmeg, which carries on an intense woody dry down, enriched with Indian sandalwood, dry musk and warm cedar. Complementary to full range emotions, it wears well at work, in the lab, or an evening out on the town."
Black Widow Perfume ~ "Russian spy, trained assassin, world-class ballerina, girl from legal department. This perfume has a clear shot of citrus slowly giving way to sensual caramel and honey. The scent dries down with a blend of bitter chocolate, clear patchouli and praline."
Infinity Formula Cologne ~ "Inspired by Nick Fury, CIC of S.H.I.E.L.D., this cologne is a seductive fragrance for not just any man, but only for those who will risk everything to keep the dream of freedom alive. And sure, you could describe it as a citron cocktail smoothed over with a couple of stiff shots of tonka bean and guaiac wood, or you could just put it on and know it makes you smell good."
Mischief Cologne ~ "Inspired by Thor's bad brother, Loki, this unisex fragrance combines a base of green tea and amber with bergamot and cardamom in a dangerous-sexy, yet playful way that wears well on anyone, day or night."
Is this line by the same brand that did the Star Treck fragrances? They instantly poppped into my head when I saw the title of this article. Testing them wouldn’t be an issue because I’d probably never see them in my area anyway, but they sound pretty basic and aimed for mass appeal.
Yes they are! Actually, the original company that made the ST fragrances had a different name but now they show up at the JADS International website (and a Star Wars line too…) so they either changed name or bought the ST licence – which includes Pon Farr and Shirtless Kirk among others.
Alas, this comics geek is going to save her money for other endeavous…
LOL! I may have to get these, if they’re still about after I manage to get (and load up) my Kindle.
*sigh* Sadly that’s looking farther and farther away. (stupid teeth)
Good eye Absolute…you spotted their MO right away!
As an in curable geek, I feel obligated to try these, but I’ll be saving my FB money for Lipstick Rose & 24, Faubourg, thank you. They do sound very mass-market to me as well. On the other hand, I kinda hope they do well, mainly because getting hit with the smell of “con funk” every time I go to my weekly DnD game is the least pleasant aspect of comic shops & they sound nice enough.
The Star Trek ones were not exactly brilliant. Just fun.
I’d have gone with Old Spice for the Cap. Obvious choice.
Oh dear, ‘con funk’. I am proud to say that whenever I step into an elevator while at a comic con without fail someone asks, ‘Who smells so good?’
Sadly, even fragrances don’t really do anything except mask the rancidness of 18 hours in the game room & no showers since last Tuesday. Blech. It starts out slowly, but by Saturday night at even the nicest of host hotels the elevators and back corners of the upper hallways smell awful.
Oh my gawd! You just triggered a college flashback! Ack! Stinky boys, 2-liters of Mountain Dew and a D-20. . .
I do like the Black Widow name …and the notes don’t sound too bad.
Yeah, but when you think trained assassin, do you think honey and praline? Kinda sounds like killing folks with poisoned boxes of chocolates. . .
I see an episode of The Big Bang Theory in this fragrance release….
They’re fun, I think. My man loves Marvel and collected them as a child, so it might make a fun gift.
Dear god. I think I’ll have to get one of these for my comic-book dork husband, as a reward for his support and indulgence of his perfume-dork wife. He might well enjoy the Patriot Cologne, actually — though I confess that I’m intrigued by the “deep dry masculine almost ‘God-like’ musk” in Worthy.
Love the ad copy, for once in my life — it fully owns its inherent ridiculousness.
This made my day, I could not stop laughing while reading the ad copy. It is so ridiculous, my actually hurt from laughing so hard! I am just a little confused as to why there is tequila in the Captain America fragrance. Tequila better suits Iron Man, in my opinion.
, my ribs* actually hurt
