Vector: The Smell of Space

On April 1, Lockheed Martin announced that they had created a perfume that recreated the smell of space: "blends metallic notes... with a sterile feel, balanced by subtle, fiery undertones that burn off like vapor in the atmosphere."

The timing of the announcement indicates it was an April Fool joke, except that Lockheed Martin really created some of this stuff, sent out samples of it, and is giving away bottles of it to people who sign up on its website. Which I think makes it a legitimate addition to our ongoing exploration of weird fragrances. It recalls the moon-smell fragrance created by French designer Barnabé Fillion.

I will have to send some to Number 1 of the Umbrella Academy. He could apply it to the fur on his body to mask the musky moon ape smell.

It looks like the designers definitely saw The Expanse, to get their ideas.
