Resident Evil 7 Gets Blood-Scented Candle For Greater Immersion

Virtual Reality doesn’t get much more immersive than this.

Along with Resident Evil VII: Biohazard‘s upcoming release (only 20 days left, everyone!), Capcom has seen fit to release a special RE7 branded candle: The Blood, Sweat, and Fears 4-D candle. While having a PSVR headset will completely immerse your eyes, and a set of good stereo headphones will immerse your ears, there really isn’t much that can be done about smell, until now.

The Blood, Sweat, and Fears candle adds a fourth dimension, sented after the world of RE7… specifically the stink of timber, leather, and blood. Holy fuck. While that might sound puke-inducing to some, I am absolutely sold. I will be playing Resident Evil 7 with this candle, even at its steep price point of $18.99 (although the candle is built to last for at least 18-20 hours, which should be enough to get us through RE7‘s full campaign).

It’s not available yet for purchase, but you can sign up for an update from Merchoid once it is, probably closer to when the game itself drops on the 24th of this month.

    I look forward to seeing if the attack of the candle on the nostrils will merge with the VR experience. I could definitely see how the musty smell of wood could work in Beginning Hour, though what does blood smell like? Maybe it means a meaty funk?

      Blood has a copper smell, but a little sweeter.

        Thanks, so any plans for some videos/streams of playing in VR with the candle? An impressions video of the experience?

        • Rourke Keegan

          oh, you better believe! I plan to record my entire first play through, as well as stream once NDA lifts.

    ಠ_ಠ smell isn’t a dimension

    Lol. I’m all for silly promotional stuff like this, but I’d have to smell the candle first before buying.

  • As much as I love the tacky aspect of a blood scented candle, I don’t think I’d ever want to waste money on a candle that’s just going to smell like a campfire and warm pennies lmao

  • Better than a Ducati most of us can never afford.
