Hoping to profit from the May 8 release of J.J. Abrams’ new Star Trek film, chronicling the beginnings of Captain James T. Kirk and the USS Enterprise, Maryland-based Genki Wear will release three Star Trek-themed scents on April 24.
John McGonigle, president of Genki, said the two men’s colognes and one women’s perfume will retail for about $30.
Soon, Trekkies will be able to channel their inner Starfleet commander — or inner William Shatner — with “Tiberius,” based on Kirk’s character. The scent which carries the tag line “Boldly Go,” is described by Genki Wear as having a “warm vanilla, white musk and sandalwood” base.
And then there’s this:
But some Trekkies still have doubts.
“I predict incredibly stinky Trek conventions in the near future,” one online comment said.
Others simply made fun of the idea: “No Worf scent? You know, peaty, with a hint of lilac.”
Can I just say as an aside, I’m looking forward to seeing Bruce Greenwood in the new film.
