You Can Now Smell Like Outer Space With This NASA-Developed Cologne

Have you ever wondered what space smells like? It might seem like an odd question, but it certainly is intriguing. Since so few people have ever left Earth’s atmosphere, the rest of us are reliant on accounts given by those who have. Among their mixed reviews, a handful of unique scents stand out — and now, they’ve been bottled and bound for NASA and chemist Steve Pearce’s “Eau De Space” fragrance.

Originally, NASA utilized the “smell of space” for astronaut training purposes. After hiring a team of contracted specialists to recreate the scent for on-earth use, it was held behind closed doors for years, until a handful of Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests allowed for the recipe’s acquisition by a third party. Now, that company has stepped forward on Kickstarter, promising a true and unadulterated aroma reminiscent to that of space’s original smells, without earning top-secret security clearance. In what can only be described as a mixture of metallic heat, gunpowder, and seared steak, “Eau De Space” is likely the closest thing that surface-dwellers can get to the universe’s natural scent. Head over to the company’s Kickstarter to secure a bottle of your own for $29.
