Resident Evil 7 Hits All Senses With This Candle That Smells Like Blood

It’s no secret that we’re super pumped for Resident Evil VII: Biohazardand the fact that it’s coming to the PlayStation in VR which means we’ll be able to step inside one of the scariest game franchises ever. If you want to take the VR experience up a notch and really get crazy though, there’s an official RE7 candle that you light while playing for total immersion.

The candle is called the “Resident Evil 7: Blood, Sweat and Fears 4D VR Candle” and it’s creators describe the smell as “old timber, leather, and maybe some blood…”.  The idea of scented candles paired with VR is pretty awesome and I’m all for giving it a try. Hopefully the smell doesn’t linger though or you might have to hold off on inviting anyone over for a while. If you’re a Resident Evil pro the candle should last you through the game with about 20 hours of burn time. It’s currently priced at $15.99 and will be available here .

Resident Evil VII will be available on January 24th, 2017 for PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation VR, and Xbox One.

    There’s actually an entire perfume line based on blood called Blood Concept. I’ve only tried the original four (O, A, B, AB) and I wrote about O at the time:

    “Some Italian freak made perfumes based on the four blood types. Type O
    is, I kid not, a horror movie rendered in scent. Or a hospital room full
    of damp band-aids and cold, metal instruments. Or a horror movie set in
    a hospital. I’m grinning and chuckling like a madwoman. This smell has a
    sense of humor, albeit a vampiric one I can taste in my mouth like
    aluminum foil. Not “perfume”, there isn’t a word in English for such a
    scent experience. There should be.”

    • “a hospital room full of damp band-aids and cold, metal instruments”… I’m not sure I want to know what that smells like, haha

    I would like to smell those smells at least once.

    Pass. My place is already scented with marijuana.
