Evangelion body spray is the Essence of Shinji


Irresistible to both ladies and apocalypses

Add another link to the illustrious, endless chain of Evangelion-themed merchandise, folks. Cosmetics brand Creer Beaute has shacked up with the brand that spawned a million torso-plugsuit water bottles to produce an appropriately sane product to tie in with the disc release of Evangelion 3.33 - body spray.

Later this month Creer Beaute will be releasing a line of three special Evangelion-themed scented sprays for men. The line's called "COSMETIC with EVANGELION 2WAY Fragrance Mist", but really, it should've been called "Essence of Shinji", like I put in the headline. Drugstores and cosmetics shops Japan over will be hawking sprays in aqua citrus (the "Type-R"), red citrus (the "Type-A") and good ol' musk ("Type-01") for eager nerds.

What's your scent, Eva fans? I'd lobby for an "Essence of Gendo" and pick whatever that scent turned out to be.
