Superhero colognes deserve supercool bottles

If Batman, Superman, and Wolverine had their own cologne lines, the bottles that hold all that super scent should look exactly like these.

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."
