There is alcohol in space. Billions and billions of gallons of it just floating around out there, and some of it you could even drink and not die. We are not making this up. Most of what's discovered thus far has been undrinkable, granted-- such as the 288 billion-mile-across cloud of methyl alcohol in W3(OH)--- but the Sagittarius B2 cloud has ethanol in addition to its deadlier offerings, and ethanol is what we humans consume, mostly without major ill effects.*
This is our hopeful rendition of what some of the best of that ethanol might smell like, in a world with infinite variation in its amazing molecules colliding and making stuff: a smoky, peaty, highly alcoholic, slightly woody shotglass of good, mellow space whisky.
* Your mileage may vary, though we also assume you are not driving at the time.

This opens strong, but quickly mellows out into a bright, boozy scent like...like if a werewolf spilled oaky aged whiskey in a wood-paneled saloon. It's got a bite to it, almost astringent, nearly tickles your nose like carbonation might - a sort of crispness like twinkling stars, flickering brightly in an inky night sky.
It's bright enough that it could work through any season, but still woodsy, weird, and unique.

Within an hour, it became this perfect blend of woodsy, alcoholic goodness. And now I can't stop smelling my wrists. It was way too strong at first and dominated by one note, so just don't dab too much on and then immediately sit next to someone in a closed space and you should be fine. Shiny!
