Smell like a Viking

York Visitor Centre created a Viking-scented body spray. No really: I’m not making this up, and it isn’t April 1. Mead, blood, smoke, seawater and so much more.

Not only that, you can get a Smell-o-vision travel guide.

I’m… amazed. Or something. I wonder how I can find a decant of the body spray for Thora…

Utterly unrelated: take a look at this lovely 898-page Dutch watercolor mixing guide from 1692. Such patience! Every time I start something like that, I end up closer to 9 pages than 900.

    I visited the Jorvik Centre just after it was opened in 1984 – and I just loved it! The smells were great ;-)

    Hmmmm…. I wonder if you can order the Viking-scented body spray online. There’s a certain somebody who would just love this, and I think you know who I mean. :-)

    He could spray it on his food!
