One Thousand Scents

The Final Frontier

Your life won't be complete if I don't tell you about these:

Star Trek-themed fragrances.

Yes, they're real. And only forty-three years after the show debuted!

One of them is for ladies. Can you guess which one it is? It's Pon Farr, the one that's named after a Vulcan hormonal cycle that causes sufferers to become murderously violent unless they have sex. Nice!

The men's scents are named Tiberius, after the star of the original series, a man who basically screwed anything in a (mini)skirt, and Red Shirt, an in-joke name for the person who's sure to die when a team leaves the ship.

I can't help thinking that these could have used a little more development time.
