Shows like The Walking Dead give a glimpse of the future that could be in the case of a zombie apocalypse. Doesn’t look like a bright future, does it? If you believe the apocalypse is coming, then the first thing you have to do is take measures to make sure that you don’t get bitten. You don’t have to smear yourself with zombie gunk or wear clothes worn by the undead. All you’ll have to do is spritz on Eau De Death and you’ll be fine–in theory, that is.
Eau De Death was thought up by chemist Raychelle Burks. It essentially smells like rotting corpses, so this will not only ward of the dead but scare off the living as well. It’s essentially a mix of chemicals that the body naturally produces during decomposition: putrescine and cadaverine. A few drops of methanethiol are added into the mix to give it that nice rotting egg scent.
It’s not for sale, but at least we’ve got the potential first line of defense when the zombies come crawling.
