There are a lot of things about Bruce Wayne that people want to emulate—his incredible wealth, his debonair ability to switch between a billionaire/playboy/philanthropist and a vigilante who roams the streets of Gotham searching for bad guys to beat up—but if you were ever curious about what the Dark Knight might smell like, House of Sillage has created a collection of fragrances just for you.
Let’s start with The Batman: Vengeance which will have notes of bergamot, cardamom, and tonka bean. There’s something else here called “Heart Notes” and “Base Notes”, which include cashmeran and oakmoss, and I’m sure if I cared more about perfume I would know the difference, but I can assure you I do not. What I do know is that $295 dollars is too much for a branded scent whose main appeal seems to be the Batman logo on the bottle.
If the nearly-300-dollar price tag doesn’t dissuade you from looking further, there’s a Limited Edition Hero Fragrance that’s nearer to $400, and includes “over 100 hand-placed diamond-cut Swarovski crystals” and apparently smells like a leathery orchard, complete with musk. I’m sure there’s someone out there who wants to spend a ridiculous amount of money all so that when someone asks them what they’re wearing they can whip out a cowl and say “the night,” but it ain’t me.
There’s also some branded lipstick, for the ladies, more daring men, and enbies of all sorts, but give TikTok a few hours and I’m sure you can find a dupe in no time. If you’re looking to literally burn money, there is a candle available that presumably smells a lot like the Hero Fragrance, but at $60, it’s a steal. Sort of.
