Kaspersky Launches a Range of Perfumes

This shouldn’t be real, but it is. Kaspersky has taken its security expertise to the next logical step: making fragrant. We’ve got everything from perfume to body lotion and shampoo here, folks. While I have no idea what they smell like, I hope Kaspersky hasn’t inadvertently started something: what if Apple releases a line of cologne or toilette and claim they invented it? (It may stink, but it’s because you’re wearing it wrong.)

There is a rumour doing the rounds that there's a little bit of Eugene's DNA in every sample sent out, though this may have been caused by a misreading of the ingredients which include Eugenol, a common phenylpropene included in perfumes. "Fear awakens our senses," explained David Emm, Kaspersky Lab's principal security researcher, who is the "face of the new scent" apparently, although we can very definitely confirm that Emm is neither of the models in the brochure. "The men and women who wear Threat de Toilette understand today's online threats and protect themselves against them," Emm continued. "Fear is no longer felt only in the physical world آ– it's all around us in our connected lives too and we need to make sure we're constantly protected."
