My fellow Blue Believers… today marks a historic day, a historic day not just for Sonic fans, but for Sega fans as a whole. For years we have wondered, asked the question… ‘can I smell like Sonic?’ Today, we can finally give you the answer!
The dreams of thousands of Sega fans have been answered, you can soon smell like Sonic! In fact, you can soon smell like a whole range of Sega characters! Thats right my friends. Epic Scents, makers of such fragrances as MegaMan… yes that is a real product, have announced today their partnership with Sega to produce a range of products based off a range of Sega characters.
Details as to the exact nature of the products of characters in question were not disclosed, however, a release date of June 2013 was mentioned. If Sonic isn’t in the line, something has gone very wrong, however, that doesn’t stop me from offering a number of suggestions.
The Sonic, For those who want that fresh full of energy boost in the morning. Or how about the Ax Battler, nothing says “I AM A MANLY MAN DOING MANLY THINGS!” than smelling like a barbarian as you chop up wood for your dad. Or maybe ‘The Uncle Kaz’ for those who want to wow the ladies with their kareoke skills and at the same name put the young Yakuza’s in their place? And as for the ladies, how about ‘The Ulala’ For the pop tastic diva in us all? Or the Blaze Fielding, Strong, Independant, Powerful, and can summon a bazzoka strike with one click of a button?
Joking aside, I for one am genually looking forward to seeing and smelling these in the future, though I do worry the reaction I might get if I send someone a bottle of ‘Chao in Paris.’
No details on the exact release date or price were given. But we’ll keep you upto date with news as it comes to light.
Full press release is at follows.
