Zombie perfume arrives...yes, it's now a thing

Have you ever wanted to smell like a zombie? Most likely, the answer is no. There's just something about rotting, infected flesh that gives you a "not so fresh" feeling. But I must admit, when I’m watching The Walking Dead, the thought of how the post-apocalyptic world smells has crossed my mind.

Well maybe we can find out the truth without having our world go to hell via Demeter, the popular perfumery which specializes in single note scents that include "Dirt," "Cannabis Flower," and "Grass." Called "Zombie for Him" and "Zombie for Her," the limited time fragrances, available until April 20) will cost $20 for a 1 oz. spray, and $40 for 4 oz.

But how will these undead guys and gals smell? The dude zombies can expect to smell like a "combination of dried leaves, mushrooms, mildew, moss and earth." And ladies will enjoy emitting a lighter version of the male scent "with a touch of Dregs from the bottom of the wine barrel for that feminine touch."

I may need to pick up a bottle ... for research purposes. If you have smelled this Zomfume, let us know what you think!
