Authorities in the Chelyabinsk region, which was hit by a meteorite on February 15, have announced plans to launch a new perfume with the scent of the celestial body, which brought the Urals city to international fame.
The new fragrance will be named “Chebarkul Meteorite,” after the lake where the meteorite’s fragments were found, the administration of the town of Chebarkul said on its website.
Local businessman Sergei Andreyev proposed to analyze the meteorite’s fragments to create a fragrance.
“It will most likely feature metallic and stony notes,” the administration quoted Andreyev as saying.
Chelyabinsk authorities earlier announced plans to erect a monument to commemorate the meteorite and to hold a competition for the best design proposal.IANS
