Last year Genki Wear made big news when they released the first Star Trek fragrances. This summer Genki is releasing a brand new cologne called ‘Shirtless Kirk’. TrekMovie has exclusive details and a first look at the packaging. Plus links to pre-order so you can smell like Kirk.
New Star Trek Cologne: Shirtless Kirk
Shirtless Kirk is Genki’s fifth Star Trek fragrance. The tagline for the new cologne is "Set Phasers to Stunning". Here is the official description:
Although apropos anytime, Shirtless Kirk Cologne for Men is best worn as an evening fragrance, containing clean citrus topnotes and a heavy earth finish.
According to Genki, the individual components of the fragrance include: Rosemary, Mandarin Orange Wood, Badian, Citronella, May Rose, Elemi, Nasturtium, Ginger, Palmarosa, Mosses, Pepper, Sandalwood, Patchouli and Ambrette
Here is the final packaging:
Here is what it reads on the back of the box:
Sometimes the only thing standing between you and a successful mission is a thin piece of cloth. Whether in battle or love, you know the shirt is simply… optional.
Sure, it’s part of the Required Uniform–made to command respect and a symbol of strength and honor; but it’s your flesh and blood barely contained within that command gold officer’s attire that make you exactly who and what you are.
Shirtless Kirk retails for $29.99 and will be available in July. You can pre-order the fragrance at Entertainment Earth (note: currently EE has an early version of the packaging art, the above image is the final).

Great Moments In Kirk w/o Shirt
Although well known for his ripped shirt look, James T. Kirk often found reasons to go totally shirtless as well, as these clips show:
From "The Empath"
From "The Enemy Within"
From "Patterns of Force"
From "The Gamesters of Triskelion"
From "Charlie X"
And in the 2009 Star Trek movie, not only did Kirk go shirtless, he went pantless too.
