Many a sci-fi fan is anxiously awaiting the New Star Trek Movie hitting theaters May 8th. In preparation of the upcoming movie, there have been many new products hitting the market as you'd expect with a highly anticipated release.
above: the Red Shirt and Tiberious outer boxes underwent a slight redesign after initially launched, as shown above
But what I didn't expect was a line of scents to accompany the upcoming blockbuster. Nothing I have yet seen for the movie has struck me as bizarre as these new five fragrances by Genki Wear for the sci-fi set named "Tiberius", "Red Shirt", "Ponn Farr", "Sulu" and "Shirtless Kirk."
The Tiberius cologne, (and yes the T. in Captain T. Kirk stands for Tiberius) is designed to "Boldy Go" as the tagline emphasizes. According to Genki Wear, the perfume has sweet citron zest, black pepper, and cedar as its top notes and warm vanilla, white musk, and sandalwood as its base notes. Genki Wear promises that "Tiberius Cologne for men is difficult to define and impossible to refuse". Order Star Trek Tiberius Cologne here
Red Shirt Cologne:
Genki’s "Red Shirt" cologne (whose tag line is "Because Tomorrow May Never Come") celebrates the sacrifices of those often nameless crew of the USS Enterprise who don the red shirts of the typical Ensign. Described by Genki Wear 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.

According to Genki Wear, Both the Tiberius and Red Shirts are 100ml (3.4 oz) quality colognes built from long lasting fragrances for men.

Pon Farr Perfume For Women:
The third scent is designed for Women. Genki Wear describes it as "a refreshing fragrance that is both invigorating and dramatic with light, clean top notes of citrus, black currant, lotus blossom, and water lily. And with base notes from sandalwood, peach and mulberry, Pon Farr is perfect for those bright sunny days and warm summer nights spent together at the beach, around the fire, or simply watching your favorite affaire d'honneur. Sharp and aggressive, simple yet exotic."
For those who don't know, "Ponn Farr" is named for the Vulcan mating ritual first introduced in the episode "Amok Time," which occurs ever seven years. Pre-order the Pon Farr perfume here.
After the three above were launched, Genki Wear added SULU Pour Homme and the hilarious Shirtless Kirk as Comic Con Exclusives.
SULU Pour Homme:
SULU Pour Homme is described as "a refined, aquatic fragrance. This masculine scent possesses a blend of citrus and spice that includes carnation, peony, white lily, nutmeg, saffron and coriander combined with heavier lower notes of musk, amber and exotic dark woods. Although top notes immediately hit upon the light citrus, it’s deeper complexity call for evening wear."
"Sometimes the only thing standing between you and a successful mission is a thin piece of cloth. Whether in battle or love, you know the shirt is simply… optional. Sure, it’s part of the Required Uniform–made to command respect and a symbol of strength and honor; but it’s your flesh and blood barely contained within that command gold officer’s attire that make you exactly who and what you are. Although apropos anytime, Shirtless Kirk Cologne for Men is best worn as an evening fragrance, containing clean citrus topnotes and a heavy earth finish."
Sulu Pour Homme and Shirtless Kirk can now be found on Amazon or ebay.
So, as you can see... it's beginning to smell like Star Trek.
