A local cosmetics company, decided to name a new scent M-75, saying “the fragrance is pleasant and attractive, like the missiles of the Palestinian resistance.”

The perfume comes in masculine and feminine scents and costs twice the price of other perfumes as it uses ingredients “worthy of the victory in the Gaza Strip.”

Missiles fired from Gaza indiscriminately targeting the civilian populations of Tel Aviv and Jerusalem failed to hit their targets in the recent conflict although the highly inaccurate weapons wreaked havoc on the lives of millions of Israelis.

This is not the first time a perfume in the Middle East has been named in celebration of terrorist activities against Israel.

After the Second Lebanon War in 2006, a perfume tagged with the slogan “the scent of resistance” was marketed in Lebanon several months later.

The Lebanese Daily Star reported back then that “if you’ve ever wondered what resistance smells like, then try a dab of ‘Resistance Perfume,’ which comes ‘exclusively’ with a political messages and a picture of Hezbollah Secretary-General Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah.”

In addition, the perfume package included a “digitally manipulated picture of a sinking ship, meant to represent the Israeli warship damaged by a Hezbollah missile during the conflict.”

The Israeli warship had been hit by sophisticated Iranian-made radar-guided missile fired by Hezbollah with the help of fighters from Iran’s Revolutionary Guard.
