So here we went ahead reaching a new level of Star Trek merchandise: There will be Star Trek cologne coming in three different fragrances called ‘Red Shirt’, ‘Tiberius’ and (that one I already like best, cause I have a Star Trek background) ‘Ponn Farr’. Wow that’s going to be just great at the next Star Trek convention, when everybody smells the same! Well maybe it’ll be a blessing in disguise, because some of them people might have smelled worse before, who knows and since I DON’T go to Star Trek conventions, I can just rely on knowledge that derives from stereotypes. Anyway, hit the jump for some pics and detailed discriptions of the fragrances. (via TrekMovie.com)
The Tiberius cologne, named in honor of the Mirror Universe James T. Kirk’s challenges users to “Boldly Go” with a perfume described as being spiked with “notes of freshness and sensuality.”
According to Genki Wear, the perfume has sweet citron zest, black pepper, and cedar as its top notes (top notes refers to those scents that are noticeable first) and warm vanilla, white musk, and sandalwood as its base notes (scents perceived last, usually about a half hour after application). Genki Wear promises that “Tiberius Cologne for men is difficult to define and impossible to refuse” which is also a pretty good description of the Mirror Kirk himself.
Genki’s “Red Shirt” cologne (whose tag line “Because Tomorrow May Never Come” is priceless) celebrates the sacrifices of those often nameless crew of the USS Enterprise. Described appropriately as a cologne for those with a “devotion to living each day as it could be your last” the cologne has top notes of green mandarin, bergamot, and lavender, with base notes of leather and grey musk.
Both the Tiberius and Red Shirts are 100ml (3.4 oz) quality colognes built from long lasting fragrances for men, and will retail for $30-40 depending on the department or retail store.
The most risqué titled of the new Star Trek fragrances is “Ponn Farr” which is a perfume designed to “drive him wild.” It should only be used once every seven years (okay, that isn’t true). Named for the Vulcan mating ritual first introduced in the episode “Amok Time,” this perfume is one of the newly designed products meant to appeal to female fans. More details and an image on Ponn Farr will be available soon.
