The art of cosplay has allowed nerds to dress up like their favourite superheroes in order to parade around town, but what about the geeks out there that want to smell like their favourite comic book champion? It seems cologne company JADS has you covered, launching a range of fragrances for the upcoming Avengers film.
For $US60, JADS is selling a four pack of superhero-inspired fragrances for men based on characters from the upcoming Avengers film. Fans of Tony Stark will finally be able to capture the pungent aromas of being caught in a metal suit all day, while Bruce Banner fans will get to enjoy the refreshing smells of the massive green ogre. Thor and Captain America fans are also catered for.
Naturally, it’s not a realistic recreation of a superhero’s natural odour (or is it?), but the four pack of fragrances is destined to kick bad smells butts. The JADS site also offers a Nick Fury cologne (not guaranteed to smell like Samuel L Jackson), with Spiderman and Deadpool to come.
Here’s the description of each fragrance from the JADS website:
A cologne that pays homage to the confident, stand-up-to-bullies, hard working average Joe in every man. PATRIOT Cologne is both reserved and sexy; like a symbol on a shield or a moniker on a motorcycle helmet. Fresh notes of green lime and white pepper are the first to hit with dry oak wood, sandalwood and tequila accords finishing the adventure. Perfect for any time or place, PATRIOT Cologne puts the Novus Mundus in your strong, sensuous hands for you to embrace and discover.
Your Attack Plan.
Mark VII Cologne
A resolutely sophisticated cologne forged from the sea, the sun, the earth, and a touch of devil-may-care whimsy. Transparent, aromatic, and modern in nature, Mark VII combines mandarin, neroli, nasturtium and jasmine layered with light patchouli to create a contemporary expression of “I don’t play well with others” confidence; leaving you always ready for whatever a genius, billionaire, playboy-philanthropist might encounter along the way.
Mark VII Cologne
Very unusual and rare materials have been brought together to create a woody aquatic cologne evoking both a serene sense of timeless freedom and a single-minded, unbridled passion for life. Yuzu, bergamot and tarragon create clean, clear top notes along with unexpected accords of water lily and nutmeg. SMASH! then carries an intense woody drydown enriched with Indian sandalwood, vetiver, musk and sharp cedar. Complimentary to a full range of emotions, it wears well no matter where—at work, the lab or an evening out on the town.
This woody citrus cologne is a unique, meaningful combination of bergamot, frozen ginger and wheatgrass blended with a hint of fresh natural grapefruit and layered deeply with aromatic cypress. Basenotes are possessed with sensual, seductive tones of dark amber and cedarwood, protecting and enhancing a deep, dry masculine (dare we say almost God-like?) musk.
