Official Star Wars Fragrances: Product Review

This post is sponsored by the KeepMe Group. I have been compensated for my time. All opinions are 100% my own.

KeepMe Group has teamed up with LUCASFILM and Disney to create The Ultimate Star Wars Collectors Gift – a range of Official Star Wars Fragrances boxed in beautifully designed packaging. The Star Wars fragrance collection includes six unique scents representing the light and dark side of the Force. Amazing, right!?

In the development of this, KeepMe Group has focused on creating a range of products that are true to Star Wars fans from many walks of life. The team, based in the UK, states these items have been created by Star Wars fans for Star Wars fans, and, with the attention to detail on the packaging, it’s evident. The hardcore fan and collectors will truly appreciate the attention to detail with references to characters (using unique designs that can ONLY be found in this collection and are artistic and beautiful) It truly is a cool product, combining high-quality Eau de Parfum fragrances with high-end packaging finishes. Basically, it appeals to a much more diverse audience than one might originally expect.

Star Wars Rebels Talking Points: “Zero Hour: Parts 1 and 2”

The Star Wars Rebels season finale is always an event; threads are tied up, mysteries are solved, and tears are shed. Season Three is no different. Personally, I spent most of the episode full of angst and nervousness. The stakes are high, and with Grand Admiral Thrawn in hot pursuit, even the Duke boys would be in trouble (#80sReference). As with all Talking Points columns, there will be spoilers, so don’t click on the link below until you have seen “Zero Hour: Parts 1 and 2”.

Book Review: Aftermath: Empire’s End

Chuck Wendig’s final entry in the Aftermath trilogy, Aftermath: Empire’s End has been released, and completes the adventures of Norra Wexley and her mismatched group of miscreants. The reader journeys with Norra Wexley and bounty hunter Jas Emari in their pursuit of Grand Admiral Rae Sloane, but that is only one focal point of the narrative. We also follow Temin (“Snap”) Wexley, his wonderfully terrifying droid, Mr. Bones, and recovering Imperial Loyalty Officer, Sinjir Rath Velus as they desperately try to convince the New Republic that they must journey to Jakku (no spoilers here; once you read the book, you will understand why) for a number of reasons that are critical, both personally, as well as on a galactic scale. While it does not reach the staggering heights of Life DebtEmpire’s End is a worthy bookend to the Aftermath trilogy.
