Just What You've Always Wanted

You, Too, Can Smell Like Stan Lee, Just Like You Always Wanted!


Stan Lee posing with his newest creation

So you’ve become the grandfather of a genre, gathered a hoard of adoring fans, and have created some of the most memorable characters pop culture has to offer. What do you do next? Apparently, make a cologne of yourself. Details under the cut. From the mouth of the man himself:

Not only do I want fans to look sharp like their favorite superhero and their Generalissimo here, but I thought wouldn’t it [be] fun to offer them the chance to smell like one too… whether they have a date or a rendezvous with an ally.

A bottle goes for $24.99, and the cologne itself has notes of “bergamot, ginger, white pepper, basil, and violet and features layers of cedar, vetiver and musk accords”. Ah, the smell of success. Would you like to smell like Stan Lee? Is he going to use this as a foray into the fashion world? What will he think of next? Tell us what you think in the comments!

    Carpal Tunnel relief from working the mouse too hard.

    You’re humor levels were so off the charts I just think they lost control themselves for a moment. I admit, I almost lost my psyche to the hilarity as well.

    It must be my dead pan delivery. That always throws people.

    Huh. I always thought Stan Lee would smell like mothballs and bourbon.

    I was going to say I’d wear a Kirby kologne but then I realized I’d probably just smell like cigar smoke.

    I always thought he would smell like moldy comic books that have been sitting in a box for ten years

    I’m a little disappointed that it isn’t called Excelsior!

  • Mark Brown

    Not moldy, dusty.

    The smell of summer afternoons spent sitting in the attic/basement on beanbag chairs reading old comic books. The kind on real newsprint, not the glossy paper.

    If I wear this do I become Kris “The Man” Smith?

    I met Stan Lee a few years ago (at SDCC), and he actually smelled a bit of Bounce
