We know what Batman looks like and we have have numerous options for what he sounds like, including Christian Bale, Ben Affleck, Kevin Conroy and Adam West. But how does the Dark Knight smell?
Don’t think too long about it (please!), because India’s Vanesa Care has introduced special-edition Batman body spray as part of its Denver brand. Spoiler: If you guessed “sweat, wet leather and regret,” you’re wrong.
Joining the previously released Superman body spray (“Power” and “Strength”), Denver Batman comes in two varieties: “Batman Urban Legend,” which is aimed the “ambitious young man who realizes his goals and strives for new challenges”; and “Batman Knight Warrior,” with celebrates “men’s real essence” (really!).
Now back to the question of the smell.
“Urban Legend” apparently possesses spicy citrus top notes, “masculine woody accords” and a based enriched with “musky and warm woody elements.” “Knight Warrior,” meanwhile, “opens with rosemary, artemisia, lavender, bergamot with the richness of galbanum, cinnamon and juniper at heart” and has a base “emblazoned with amber, patchouli, oakmoss and vetiver.”
“Knight Warrior” seems more complex and sophisticated. Perhaps that’s geared more toward Bruce Wayne, while “Urban Legend” is better suited for Batman. After all, there’s no sense wasting all of that artemisia, bergamot and vetiver on the likes of The Penguin and Killer Croc.
