Batman is vengeance, but what does that smell like? Bergamot, cardamom, jasmine, and patchouli, apparently. At least according to House of Sillage, a luxury fragrance company with a line of products tied in to The Batman. And “Vengeance” is on sale for $177 right now, so that seems like a good deal. However, if you want to smell like a hero, that will set you back more. The “Hero” scent sells for $395, which could be because there’s over 100 Swarovski crystals on the bottle. This is including a blinged-out batarang. So what does a hero smell like, you may ask? Well, that would be candied apple, pear leaves, smoky rose, violet, sandalwood, musk, and moss, of course. Check out the full line in the picture below. Like any recent Batman image, it needed to be brightened so you could see what was going on.
The House of Sillage collection also includes a candle and a refillable lipstick case in the shape of a bow-tie with enough bling for billionaires like Bruce Wayne. Maybe that’s where Batman keeps his grease pen to get that perfect smokey eye when he needs to suit up. Apparently the House of Sillage lipsticks have diamond powder in them for that real luxury (or Twilight vampire) feel.
The descriptions boast that the fragrances were “created to capture the olfactory sensorial experience of Gotham City.” I’ve never considered what the crime-ridden city smells like, but would expect it to be unpleasant. While we’re at it, if I had to hazard a guess I’d say heroes usually reek of the sweat and grime. Of course, that comes from fighting vigilante-style in their city of choice. But hey, musky pear leaves sounds nice too.
If you’re feeling fancy enough to try out these Batman fragrances, why not really go all out and spend money like Bruce Wayne by dropping $100,000 on a The Batman-themed luxury watch.
