In 1948, someone at the Andrew Jergens Company of Cincinnati, Ohio decided it would be a clever marketing idea to create a scent called "Atom Bomb" and to package it in bomb-shaped bottles. The end of World War II was fresh in the American psyche and the future of atomic warfare hadn't yet been given much consideration. It probably wasn't the brightest marketing decision.
Since these bottles only seem to turn up in the 1/4 ounce sample size - larger bottles may exist but I've yet to see one - I assume the product was unsuccessful and quickly withdrawn. The sample bottles are plentiful and can be found with both foil and paper labels.
