Smells like… Comic Book Spirit?

Whilst shopping for candles, the Rogues came upon a “Fireside” candle. We immediately decided it smelled like Gambit. How do we know that you ask – Don’t ask, just let it happen. This led us to discuss what we think the X-Men would smell like. Below are some of our thoughts…. what do you think your favorite comic book characters would smell like?

Professor X – Mothballs and Wig Glue

Cyclops – Axe and a Fraternity House

Jean Grey – Plain-as-can-be Ivory Soap and Breck Shampoo

Wolverine – Naturally Occurring Old Spice (the man your man wants to smell like), Woods and Cigar Smoke

Storm – Outside, right before it rains

Rogue – Magnolias and Sass

Gambit – Spices, Bourbon, Cigarettes and Bad Decisions

Beast – Doggie Shampoo

Emma Frost – Better than you, that’s all you need to know, darlings

Nightcrawler – Sulfer and Brimstone

Kitty Pryde – Cucumber Melon body wash from Bath and Body Works

Jubilee – Bubblegum

Angel – Rich Mahogany and Money

Magneto – Pantene Pro-V (smell THIS, Charles)

Sabretooth – Raw Animal Hides

Toad – Flies and Stickiness

Pyro – Matches

Quicksilver – Shame and Disappointment

Scarlet Witch – PMS

Teon (one of the Five Lights) – Flea Powder and Urine
