Witchblade: The Odor


Okay. I get the ironic, kitchy appeal of the Star Trek and Cthulhu colognes. I understand a parfumerie doing a cross-promotion with a major motion picture like Iron Man to sell some more products. But why, oh why, is there a Witchblade perfume? From Comic Book Resources:

The WITCHBLADE Fragrance line
features 5ml perfume oil blends based on the characters from Top Cow’s
Witchblade series, including Witchblade (Antediluvian, sacred metal,
glowing red musk, blessed frankincense, antiqued amber),
Witchblade-bearer Sara Pezzini (Hint of leather and an understated
vintage musk layered over the scent of lightly perspiring,
honey-dusted skin), Detective Patrick Gleason (A classic men’s cologne
splashed over a leather trench coat with a hint of gunshot residue) and
the Curator (Mysterious herbs and ancient resins). The Sara Pezzini and
Witchblade scents are meant to be layered together, but can be worn

Really? Detective Patrick Gleason: The Perfume? That… that just seems wrong. Even more wrong than the Witchblade fragrances smelling like anything other than “strippers.” The perfumes will be available at C2E2 in Chicago for $26.
