Demeter has launched Zombie, a limited edition fragrance duo:
So you're a Zombie. Or you know a Zombie. And you might become a Zombie. Any way you slice and dice it, you’ll need different kinds of fragrance. Fragrances that can make the dead simply pass by without offending. Because only Demeter Fragrance Library could make a Zombie fragrance eminently wearable.
Zombie for Him ~ "Think forest floor. Zombie for Him is a combination of dried leaves, mushrooms, mildew, moss and earth."
Zombie for Her ~ "A slightly lighter version of the Men's fragrance with a touch of Dregs from the bottom of the wine barrel for that feminine touch."
Demeter Zombie for Him and Zombie for Her are available in 30 or 120 ml Cologne ($20 – $39.50).
Surprised there aren’t more zombie themed fragrances…
Oh my god, did you actually write that sentence??
I mean, of course you did. You’re just so dry and blasé. “Yes, zombies are so hot right now, can’t imagine why the Bergdorf counters aren’t flooded with zombie scents…”
Ha, not surprised they’re not at Bergdorfs, but seriously am surprised there aren’t more of them. And guessing these will sell like hotcakes.
And personally, I find them funny, and IMHO there is far too little humor in fragrance these days.
My zombie-lore loving husband is SO getting this as a gift…. now all Demeter has to do is produce a followup frag called “Braaaaains”.
I just ordered it; I feel positive my spouse will laugh his head off when he sees it, and it will be a novel addition to all the Max Brooks books and volumes of The Walking Dead which grace the official zombie shelf in our bookcase. I’ll let you know how it smells… that is, if I haven’t “turned” by then.
I would be even more interested to know how it smell to you once you have ‘turned’!
If I say “Uuuuunnnghhhhh….” then you know it’s a thumbs-up.
It arrived, and believe it or not, it smells remarkably like petrichor! We expected something hilariously ghastly and instead got the scent of rain on a slate pathway mulched with drifts of dried pine needles. The punchline to this joke: not bad, not bad at all.
Excellent, thanks for the report!
LOL! I suppose brain is the base note for both fragrances?
We can hope
Were brains even used to come up with this scent?
Okay, I have to admit that I totally want these. May even buy I sniffed because they are practically free!
They are cheaper than free!
Oh, hell NO!
These are great! If I were a zombie I certainly wouldn’t want to smell offense.
No, heaven forfend: I mean zombies are just known for their desire to please!
What about vampires? no luck for us vamps or what? seems nobody like us
There were a few Twilight fragrances though…
Somehow the ‘forest floor’ vegitals sound much less offensive to me than ‘fruity gormand’ zombie fragrances. Wine dregs is a bit off-putting, though.
I agree. I don’t think of zombies as having gender, and I would imagine ALL zombies would smell pretty much the same… so it’s unclear why the girl zombie has to smell like a wino.
Maybe the girl zombies drink to make the boy zombies look better? That whole beer goggles, or in this case wine goggles idea.
Maybe it’s more of a fermented smell–rotten fruit? To cover up the rotten body smell!! Ha!
DEAD BODY OR SWEATY SURVIVIOR?
It seems one man’s trash is just another zombie’s treasure:
I wonder if brains smell as good as they taste
Oh much much better…
I’m grossed out.
As a sidebar, last year at Michael’s craft store at Halloween they had these hilarious stickers that look like old fashioned photos, turn them to the side and they are vicious zombies. I about died laughing, right in the store, tears and all. Of course I bought them and they are in my drawer waiting to make me laugh on a day when I feel like crap. Nothin like a zombie ta cheer ya!!
