Judas Priest Legend, K.K. Downing, Launches Fragrances For Metalheads

When most rockers or metallers branch out into other business endeavors, they usually go the way of booze or sex toys (or everything under the sun if you’re KISS). Not former Judas Priest guitarist K.K. Downing. No, he’s chosen to try to make metalheads smell better, and if you’ve ever been in a pit, then you know that we can get pretty rank.

Downing has launched two fragrances for metalheads: Metal for Men ($69.99) and Metal Pour Femme ($65.99). Both are available at planetrock.backstreetmerch.com

Watch the video above to learn how Downing came about the idea and what else he’s working on. Concerning the fragrance, he basically says:

I think I just woke up one morning and thought of the word ‘metal’ and I thought ‘metal for men’ and I thought, straight away, I thought, ‘What could that relate to?’ And I don’t know why I thought about it, but I thought there’s nothing out there on the market that’s associated with rock and metal fans in respect to fragrances and stuff. And I guess that, combined with my mum asking me continually what I want for Christmas and stuff, and it just came about.

Understanding that you likely haven’t smelled these fragrances, is this something that you’d be interested in? If you have smelled these scents, tell us about them in the comments section below.
