Highly logical, this fragrance

Pon Farr by Genki

Genki’s “Pon Farr”, introduced (of course) at Comic-Con ’09, is “a refreshing fragrance that is both invigorating and dramatic with light, clean top notes of citrus, blackcurrant, lotus blossom and water lily … with base notes from sandalwood, peach and mulberry.” Fifty milliliters will run you about $30, or the equivalent in Federation credits. For the men, there is, or was, “KHAAANN!”, which has sold out, although “Red Shirt” and “Tiberius” are still available.

Which makes me wonder what sort of ideas they threw away:

  1. “Chanel No. 7 of 9”
  2. “Tricordia” (“It’s scent, Jim, but not as we know it”)
  3. “Bajoran Again”
  4. “Kes in the Dark”
  5. “Stages of Acquisition”
  6. “Midnight Trill”
  7. “Kobayashi Marooned”
  8. “Cardassia” (“There are four scents!”)
  9. “Jem-Hadari!”
  10. “Q” [he insisted]

(First sighting at Popgadget.)

    I’m not sure I really want to smell what Vulcan rut smells like…

    Is “KHAAAAAN” the smell of Rich Corinthian Leather?

    Imzadi seems like such an obvious choice.

    Tribbles (Woodsy or Citrus)

    Carpe diem! means “Seize the day!”…
