As part of the celebration for the 25th anniversary of Resident Evil, Capcom has announced a piece of merchandise that makes a lot of thematic scents for the franchise. Yep, Capcom is now selling Resident Evil-themed perfume, though it’s sadly only available in Japan.
The set of three 10ml fragrance bottles include the odour profiles of three of the series’ main characters in Chris Redfield, Leon S. Kennedy and Jill Valentine. I don’t have the foggiest clue as to what these would actually smell like, but I imagine that Chris’ would have hints of whey protein and sweat.

This wonderfully weird set can only be purchased in physical Capcom stores or through the Japanese online Capcom store, so unless you have hook-ups that can ship them to you, you might be out of luck…for now. If you are able to snag them, they’ll run you 6,380 Yen, which equates to be around AU$80.
What do you think Leon smells like? What other gaming scents would you be down for? Let us know in the comments or on our social media.
