[ Edited ]

So, yeah, here it is...the cologne that makes you smell like James Tiberius Kirk. Any comments?   :smileyhappy:

I'll bet you're right about the cons!  The thing that creeped me out was the cologne's "tagline" on the book: "Boldly go..." Eech. Bad visuals!

I would not even consider this cologne if I had not showered in 10 weeks, just got done rolling through a pig sty, got sprayed by a skunk on the way home, and had to get ready for a date.

Re: Tiberius: The Final Fragrance

I hate stinky stuff. I've used an electric razor for years, but I won't use "pre-shave" lotions because you can feel the smelly film they leave on your face. I was always compelled to wash my face after trying to use one of those products. The only soap I will use is Ivory; when I rinse and rub the soap off of my skin off I want it to squeak like a squegee over a freshly cleaned window. The thing I hate the worst about visiting family is the knowledge that I will have to use their "soap", such as it is. I don't want any "moisturizers" or "lubricants" leaving a sheen of slick, oily stuff on my skin when all I want is to do is take a shower to get clean.

The liquids color is a little daunting. Anyone actually know what it smells like?

Boldly go, isn't so bad, you should see the tag lines they market at women.

Are you, serious, Tig? Named after a Vulcan mating ritual? What does THAT cologne smell like?

 

Wait a minute here..... you're joking, aren't you?

Definately serious

Tiberius   orange, musk, and black pepper

Red shirts  sharp, sporty, an undernotes of vanilla

And the Vulcan one, they're being cagey about since it's still a few months off

I'd be worried that Red Shirt one would make me  just a part of the back round. Coupled with the fact that probablt makes vultures follow you around waiting for you to utter your one line "Look Captain I've found something....AHHHHH!!!"

Re: Tiberius: The Final Fragrance

Didn't all background characters with a red shirt in the original series get klled? I'd be afraid that if I sprayed myself with Red Shirt, I'd get eaten by a sentient shrub or something...   :smileyhappy:

Re: Tiberius: The Final Fragrance

You know, it could work. If it smells nice, and gives a guy a confident, grounded sort of feeling (like having the home team advantage), women are going to pick up on that without realizing the secret (that he brought part of his favorite show with him into this bar).

 

He'll feel grounded and confident, smell nice, and yet he won't smell like any of the past 20 guys that came up to talk to her ... What is different about this guy? I can't put my finger on it. Hmm. He smells nice too.

 

Maybe she'll decide that different is good. Actually, being subtly different (without being too scary or overwhelmingly different) is always an advantage.  Allows her to imagine that you could potentially be the best of what is known, as well as the best of what is unknown.

 

Oh, wait! I wasn't supposed to tell you!

(chuckle) Hey guys back when I was looking. 3 things got you a piece of my time. Looking mostly at least the direction of my face while talking to me (extra points for meeting my eyes). Starting with you name and not a line. And smelling nice but not overwhelming.

 

Smelling subtlely different just might be the advantage.

Re: Tiberius: The Final Fragrance

Right! Because its intangible. Something, something nice, is different, but I CAN'T FIGURE IT OUT! What is is about this guy? One thing I know for certain, he definitely is different from that jerk that was here a few minutes ago...

Hey T., that name thing is a nice touch too. Correct eye behavior is a basic requirement. No manners, no nothing. No way.
