Star Trek colognes and what they should smell like
I was already aware of the Star Trek Colognes when they came out last year. I thought it was a cute idea, wondered what they smelt like, and then forgot all about them. (I was in a deep seated BPAL phase at the time IIRC).
A twitter pal asked me about them again today and whether or not I'd smelled them. Of course I haven't although I am rather curious as to whether they are any good or not. I doubt it, but I'd love to know. Still, I wouldn't love to know enough to splash out on a whole bottle....
Still it got me thinking (mainly about how badly wrong they've got Pon Farr), if you could have other Trek related scents, what characters would you choose, and what notes should the scents have?
For example, Picard's scent (called Make It So) should have bergamot and Earl Grey, Worf's should have a faint whiff of violets, and Seven of Nine's should smell of tuberoses and steel.
So here's a challenge/quick comp for you. In the comments tell me what Trek scent you'd like to smell and what you think it should smell like. Whomever comes up with the best one will get a little prize, the closest scent in real-life to one you've imagined for your Trek character.
Comp is open until 5th April because I know you're a busy bunch.
