Fragrances By... Star Trek

Is this real? Before debating that let's look at the products.

"Tiberius Cologne for men is difficult to define and impossible to refuse," they promise.

The other two fragrances are, um, "Red Shirt" for men, "because tomorrow may never come," and, for the ladies, "Pon Farr," which will "drive him wild."

Funny? Sure.

Now, is any of this real? Another reference mentions the colognes, and even gives a bit of backing detail to suggest it's plausible -- a perfume tied to the movie Twilight apparently sold well. The company supposedly licensed to make the products, Genki Wear, has a plausible background -- producing replica jewelry licensed from sci-fi themed shows, like Buffy and Angel -- but their website is so painfully basic it raises questions about whether it was just mocked up for purposes of a prank.

Their website also fails to note their hot new products, except for a teaser line about a new license and new product line coming soon.

Real or not, it's awesome, and should be real.

Thanks to krakatoa.


Sex Panther by Odeon: Officially licensed, it seems, from the movie Anchorman.

Carries the great slogan "60% of the time, it works every time." (That makes no sense.)

And this one seems pretty real. The site is pro-looking, and contains amusing copy (see About, especially "How It Works"). They have the proper trademark notices, etc.

Thanks to Tim.
