Capcom is selling three mini perfume bottles based on Resident Evil protagonists Jill Valentine, Chris Redfield, and Leon Kennedy.
The scents are being released as part of the Resident Evil series’ 25th anniversary celebrations, and will be on sale for Japanese fans via the Capcom Stores in Tokyo and Osaka, as well as online Capcom Stores from today.
According to the descriptions and a news report by japanese gaming magazine Famitsu, Chris Redfield’s perfume features clover and black pepper to deliver a fougère aroma. Jill Valentine takes a fruity, floral approach to freshen you up, while Leon Kennedy – always the suave soul – prefers a sharp, “citrus green” scent.
Each bottle contains just 10ml of liquid, making them an even more precious resource than magnum ammo for the survival horror heroes they represent.
Resident Evil's 25th anniversary celebrations kicked off with the launch of Resident Evil Village in May, and continued with the Netflix series Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness which released this month. Multiplayer spin-off Resident Evil Re: Verse was intended to launch this year as an additional celebration, but has since been delayed to a 2022 release date. Capcom has put together a 25th anniversary website to catalogue announcements relating to the series.
The Resident Evil perfume set isn't the only video game themed collection to appear in Capcom's storefronts. Also available on the store are collections of scents themed around Devil May Cry, Phoenix Wright, and more. Jill, Chris, and Leon join Guilty Gear Strive's Sol Badguy and Ky Kiske as recent entrants to the gaming perfume industry, all sadly only available from Japanese stores for now.
