A citrus-scented perfume marketed in Gaza as "M-75" perfume has seen a sharp uptake in sales.

The perfume was named in honor of the rockets that terrorists shot at Israel during the war last month and the fragrance, which comes in men's and women's versions, sells for $13 a bottle.

While Hamas continues to proclaim victory in the conflict, Israel halted rocket fire at its towns, though many in Gaza take pride in terrorists having shot a rocket as far as Tel Aviv and Jerusalem.

"I hope the smell is strong enough for them to whiff in Tel Aviv and remind the Jews of the Palestinian victory," Ahmed Hassan, a customer from neighboring Egypt, said as he bought 30 vials of the perfume as souvenirs in a Gaza City shop.

Rajaey Odwan, director of Gaza's Continental Style perfume company which markets imported fragrances and local knockoffs, said he thought he'd give customers a chance to smell victory and "turn it into a perfume".

"Sales have gone through the roof," he told Reuters.
