Du riechst so gut is the 1st single off the album Herzeleid by Rammstein. It was released on August 24, 1995.

Information

Versions

The single was released in two different versions: jewel case and digipack. In France the jewel case was released by XIII BIS Records. All versions include the same tracks. The digipack had a special gimmick: at a certain spot the perfume "Obsession" by Calvin Klein could be smelled, when the spot was rubbed.

There were also two different promotional versions of the single: one was a card sleeve single, which was part of the German magazines Musikexpress, and Musikwoche. The card sleeve included the title track and a demo version of "Das alte Leid". Another promotional single was part of the so called "Riech! Box". Beside the digipak of the single, the box also included a promotional sheet and a 3.5 ml bottle of "Obsession" by Calvin Klein. Everything was packed in a special cardboard box, entitled "Riech!"

On April 7, 2015 a promotional tape surfaced on eBay. It included a remix called "Tricolori Remix", which wasn't available anywhere else. But the buyer confirmed that it is the standard "Scal Remix", which was released on the single, just with a different name. Beside that, the official website listed it as "Frecce Tricolori Remix". If it is also the same remix is unknown.[1]

Misprint

The credits are a little misprinted on all versions of the single. It says "Track 2 remixed by Rewig/Spilles for Project Pitchfork 4". Actually track 3 is the remix on the CD.

On all releases DRSG is called the "Single Version". Interestingly the commercial single includes the standard album version, while the promotional card sleeve includes a version, that is 15 seconds longer.

Remix

The Remix was contributed to the single by Project Pitchfork.

Promotion

The front of the Motor Music promo card.

The famous Riech! Box, made to promote Herzeleid, and the Du riechst so gut single in 1995 was released by Motor Music. Some copies of this promo box came with a Motor Music Info Card which was inserted inside of the Du riechst so gut Duft-Digipak inside of the box. The front and back of this info card reads as follows:

Es gibt kaum eine Newcomer-Band über die bereits im Vorfeld so viel geredet wurde wie RAMMSTEIN. Sicher werden es einige kaum glauben können, aber das Debüt-Album "Herzeleid" ist endlich fertiggestellt.

Produziert von keinem Geringeren als Jacob Hellner (Clawfinger) präsentieren RAMMSTEIN eine spektakuläre, nie dagewesene Mischung aus Metalriffs, Sextalk, rhythmischen Peitschenhieben und hochmütigem Knurren. Expressiv und bildermächtig drängen RAMMSTEIN zum größtmöglichen Ausdruck, dem reinen Gefühl, und gelangen unweigerlich zum Ziel.
Als erstes Lebenszeichen erscheint die CDX "Du riechst so gut". Ein für Rammstein-Verhältnisse poppiger Gassenhauer um Liebe und Leid am Rande des Wahnsinns. Peter Spilles von Project Pitchfork steurte den hypnotisch-düsteren Insturial-Remix bei. Im Chorus von "Wollt ihr das Bett in Flammen sehen" zieren RAMMSTEIN sich nicht dem geneigten Hörer den eigenen Bandnamen für immer und ewig ins Gedächtnis zu hämmern. Herrlich!
