Smell Like Star Trek
Comic Con may be over, but you can keep the aroma of awesomness alive long after the last display has been packed up and the last wanna-be Kirk has crawled back into his basement until next year. Fragrance maker Genki Wear, has made it's mark on geeky pop culture with their Star Trek-themed colognes and perfumes.
The company unleashed a new cologne on the smelly masses to commemorate Comic Con 2009. The fragrance dubbed KHAAANN!! (no, this is not a joke, this is the actual name of the cologne) after the glistening-chested, revenge seeking Khan Noonien Singh, one of Ricardo Montalbán's greatest roles. While the limited-edition fragance is undeniably cool, no woman wants to go around smelling of Star Trek and Fantasy Island.
Genki also made a little something something for the ladies. Pon Farr, an alluring scent with "light, clean top notes of citrus, blackcurrant, lotus blossom and water lily. And with base notes from sandalwood, peach and mulberry," And in case you didn't know, Pon Farr is an event that occurs every seven years when the Vulcan race go into heat and must mate. If they don't find a mate, they go into blood fever and become violent, ultimately dying if they don't find a mate and do the deed. (I couldn't make this up if I tried). It's no wonder that the tagline for the would-be pheromone in a bottle is "drive him crazy."
Pon Farr is available on Genki's site for a mere $29.99, a small price to ask to make the Spock in your life wild with desire.
