Perfumer Set To Release EBOLA Fragrance

A French perfume maker is set to release a set of new perfumes called EBOLA.

As the Ebola Virus is currently ravaging most of West Africa and getting the attention of the whole world for the wrong reasons, some people are however also cashing on it.

From makers of Ebola Halloween costumes, to others setting a high price for a domain name Ebola, a French company is now set to release a perfume called EBOLA.

According to reports from several French websites, the Director of Marketing for the EBOLA Perfume, Aleron Céline, says the popularity of the name has prompted the company to name one of their products after it. Céline says the company is doing it just for humour purposes and not to scare anybody.

“Ebola headlines dominate our daily life. It’s a household word everybody is thinking about, everybody is talking about. And so many people joke about Ebola we feel that they will find it funny to spray themselves with EBOLA too… as a bit of a joke,” Céline says

“Of course, some might see people spraying themselves with EBOLA and think they are deliberately infecting themselves and that will be part of the fun, but this is just a unisex fragrance completely absent of Ebola virus. It’s just a very nice smell… earthy, grassy smelling," Céline added.

The perfume will be carried at boutique shops throughout France and sold online for a retail price of $399 USD.
