Think of "superhero" and "scent" together and you might think about the Hall of Justice smelling like a locker room after a hard day of crime fighting. A design company based in Charlotte, N.C., had a different idea.
Animink created a series of cologne bottles for a imaginary line called "Serum" inspired by superheroes like Captain America, Batman, and Superman. The line answers the question: "How would Dolce & Gabbana design a fragrance for men based on characters from comic books?"
The bottles are only a graphic exercise to show off the studio's design chops, so you can't buy them yet, but when DC and Marvel get a look at them, who knows? Still, they're pretty cool. I especially like Supe's scent, "Flight," which is shaped like a crystal from his Fortress of Solitude, as well as Batman's "Dark" and its grenade-shaped container.
"Millions of people all over the world have made a unique connection with comic book superheroes," the company's Markus Alison said on Animink's website. "Why can't they 'wear' them? Perhaps not a literal costume, but a fragrance? Definitely."
