Or more specifically, what does Slave Princess Leia smell like? Well, you’ll soon be able to find out because the Star Wars Shop has a bottle of this women’s perfume on pre-order. I can’t say I’m interested in a full bottle but I am highly curious as the scent. I just don’t know where one would track down a decant of such a fragrance.
According to the Star Wars Shop, the Slave Leia parfum‘s notes include a “mix of cashmere woods, musk and night-blooming jasmine”. Funny, I didn’t know they grew jasmine in space.
For the men out there, you can get a bottle of Eau Lando which is said to smell like “mandarin warmed with incense and lotus flower, exotic woods, dark violet and sensuous musk”. I can’t help but sit here chuckling at the bottle though. It’s wearing a cape for goodness sake.
Going by this same vein are the Star Trek fragrances which have actually been out for a while. The choices in that line include Tiberius which is said to smell of “citron, black pepper, cedar, warm vanilla, white musk and sandalwood”. It doesn’t sound half bad. There’s also Red Shirt (green mandarin, bergamot, lavender, leather and grey musk). And a large variety of others such as Ponn Farr (named after the Vulcan mating ritual, I’m not kidding), Sulu (can’t find the notes for this one), Khan (limited edition and smells of citrus, bergamot, vetiver, smoky ambergris scent) and I assume others I haven’t yet heard of.
Strangely enough, these gimmick fragrances are harder to track down and purchase than most niche fragrances. Who’s niche now?
