The recently revealed Genki Star Trek fragrances have created a lot of buzz, which landed them on the Tonight Show last Friday. We have video of that below, plus new sales sheets and pre-order information.
The biggest Star Trek story in the mainstream in the last month is certainly the new trailer, but the second most reported story has been the announcement of Genki’s new Star Trek fragrances, previewed here a couple of weeks ago. That story was picked up by dozens of other media sites, newspapers and more around the world and last Friday it worked its way into a comedy skit on NBC’s Tonight Show with Jay Leno, check it out.
According to Genki, the product shown on the Tonight Show was something mocked up by NBC. They used the imagery shown here at TrekMovie.com and applied it to another bottle. A spokesperson from Genki says they were happy for the recognition, but did not agree with the stereotypical humor making Trekkies the butt of the joke. Trek fans should probably expect more of this kind of thing from the mainstream media in the upcoming months as the movie increases the hype. The irony is that the new film is being perceived as making trek ‘cool again,’ but yet at the same time these kinds of stereotypes perpetuate.
New sales sheets
Genki has a total of three Star Trek fragrances planned for this spring. Today they provided us with brand new exclusive first looks at sales sheets for the Tiberius and Red Shirt Colognes. The packaging for Pon Farr perfume is still being worked on, but we will do an update when that is ready.
Available for pre-order
All three new Genki Star Trek fragrances are now available for pre-order. They will be shipping in April. All are discounted 20% from $29.99 to $23.99.
