Preferable to the Witch's Scent, I suppose
Perfume company Primaniacs specializes in scents inspired by your favorite anime characters. Last summer, they rolled out a line of perfumes inspired by four members of the cast of Re:ZERO -Starting Life in Another World-. The line is back in shops, this time with three additional scents.
Joining scents for Subaru Natsuki, Emilia, Reinhard van Astraea, and Julius Juukulius are new blends inspired by twin battle maids Rem and Ram and magical bookworm Beatrice. The entire line also has redesigned packaging.
Rem's scent is light, sweet, and fruity—meant to be reminiscent of an "innocent smile"—with darker undertones of cardamom and cedarwood:
Ram's scent is a "sweet and sour" mix of peach, orange, and green apple, with gentle undertones of roses:
Last but not least, Beatrice's scent conveys the image of eternal childhood mixed with mystery, using a blend of cotton candy, geranium, vanilla, and patchouli:
All seven scents go on sale at Primaniacs stores across Japan in January, and will retail for 5,417 yen per 30ml bottle.
