Is it fair for someone who lives in the country responsible for “Deep-Fried Twinkies” to remark on another country’s consumer products? Ab-so-lutely. Sometimes products and marketing are matches made in heaven. But other times…well, you’ll see.

The Weird: Yowamushi Pedal Fragrance Line

Having been one once, I can say with absolute certainty that teenage boys smell god awful—especially after doing any kind of exercise. The last thing I would want to smell like is a teenage boy. And yet…a fragrance line persists.

There are no words. That Fujiko Mine/lingerie mashup from last week is inspired. But this…this is chaos. Primaniacs is releasing a Yowamushi Pedal: Glory Line Fragrance Series. They’ve released seven fragrances, each modeled after a character in the show. And this is just the first batch! It looks like they’ll have two more releases coming up. To be fair, the fragrances seem like they’d nice. This anime and product is not a match made in heaven though.

Each of these is ¥5850 after tax ($54.52) and you can buy them here.
