Although the National Aeronautics and Space Administration – better known as the NASA– created years ago a perfume with “smell of outer space” so that the astronauts who were sent there get used to the aroma, now they decided to produce it on a large scale and market it to the general public.
The perfume is called Space water and its launch price is 15 dollars (about a thousand pesos approximately).
Starting in 2008 and for several years, the American space agency used this perfume to train its astronauts.
Steve Pearce, chemist and founder of Omega Ingredients, was the one who was in charge of developing this fragrance, which took four years of research and tests until you reach the final result.
Scent of space
The space smells similar to “Aroma that leaves a freshly fired weapon”, the astronaut revealed Peggy Whitson in an interview he gave to the American news channel CNN in 2002.
Steve Pearce agreed and, in this same line, added that the smell it is a mixture of gunpowder, roast beef, raspberries and rum.
The purposes that NASA pursues with the sale of this perfume is promote and increase youth interest in the study of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. In fact, its creators are already thinking of creating another perfume but with a smell of the Moon.
