A perfume company in Japan, which offers scents that are uniquely Japanese, has finally come up with a fragrance for those people who have always dreamed of smelling like a sumo wrestler.
Japanese fragrance manufacturer Luz will be launching three new products as part of their J-Scent perfume line, and one of them is reportedly a scent that emulates what a sumo wrestler smells like.
The other new scents, ramune soda (a traditional sweet Japanese soda) and yuzu citrus (a local citrus fruit), are probably more accessible to most.
According to SoraNews24, the sumo wrestler fragrance contains a combination of scents such as eucalyptus, anise, violet, heliotrope, musk, patchouli and sandalwood, which reportedly emulates the smell of “mage”, the hair oil used by the wrestlers to create their unique hairstyle. The smell is described to have a soothing effect that is similar to incense.
As the name suggests, J-Scent is a line of perfumes that are mainly Japanese-themed. Among its current roster of available scents are similarly unique products like roasted tea (hojicha), agarwood, wasanbon sugar, flower-viewing sake, paper soap, and hydrangea.
Those who want to try the ultra-manly sumo wrestler perfume will just have to wait until July 3 when it becomes available on J-Scent’s website along with the ramune soda and yuzu citrus scents. A 1.7-ounce bottle of any of the J-Scent products is sold for 3,500 yen ($31.50).
