Neanderthal Perfume

A British collaboration have released two perfumes inspired by Neanderthals.  Or perhaps a little more rationally, the scents that might have surrounded Neanderthals during our prehistory, as imagined by Japanese artist Kentaro Yamada. With a bottle reminiscence of the ancient way of chipping stone blades and other tools (called "knapping").

While our old outlook on Neanderthals was excessively derogatory, and it has been established that many of us have a few Neanderthal ancestors, I am not sure many people are ready to consider them the perfect inspiration for a personal odor.
