Evangelion. The anime that never dies, despite the fact that in every movie almost all of the characters do.
But this doesn’t seem to ever bother anyone, and so the flood of merchandise set to be readily consumed by the Evangelion fandom continues well into the present.
After releasing fragrances inspired by popular characters Rei Ayanami, Shinji Ikari, and Asuka Langley this May, Bandai continues the collection with “Cosmetic with EVANGELION 2 WAY Fragrance Mist Type-13”. The aptly named 2 WAY includes a set of 110 mL bottles featured by the famous boys of Evangelion: Shinji and Kaworu Nagisa.

The Shinji version is called “Blue Musk”, while the Kaworu version is called “White Citrus”. For some reason, I feel like these smells fit the characters, so good job Bandai and the cosmetics brand developer Creer Beaute. The bottles are even designed to simulate the boys’ plug suits.
You can pre-order the fragrance set here.
The cost for the set is 3,150 yen. While the bottles themselves look cool, I can’t help but say that the box is absolutely adorable. The piano detail just brings me back to that scene, which is one of my favorite Evangelion scenes ever. Shinji and Kaworu fans will know what I’m talking about, and if you don’t, make sure you see the new movie!
