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.

Appearance by wordsmith Gary Whitta headlines a Salt Lake City comic con heavy on Star Wars storytelling and continuity

Star Wars was a significant swath of Salt Lake Comic Con’s FanX 2017, with multiple panels, including one that featured Gary Whitta, co-screenwriter for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.

At the panel Inside Rogue One, Whitta spoke about writing the first standalone film among the Star Wars films. Other panels on the event’s Saturday included The Interconnected Star Wars Universe and Full of Sith. They saw Lucasfilm Story Group executive Matt Martin and Full of Sith podcasters Bryan Young and Holly Frey answer questions from each other and attendees that usually had to do with the *story* of Star Wars.

(And, on the off-chance that you haven’t seen Rogue One yet, spoilers follow.)

Star Wars: It’s About Family

Star Wars has many themes, and one of them is family.  It’s relatable.  It’s honest.  And that’s powerful.

Since the very first film, Star Wars introduced us to a new family, the Skywalkers.  A family that lives in a galaxy far, far away, but at the same time, that family feels like home.  Sometimes, it feels or has felt more like home than home.  At one time or another, we were Luke.  A dreamer.  We were Leia and Padmé.  A strong leader. We were Shmi.  A nurturer.  And yes, even Anakin.  Fiercely loyal and yet tried and troubled too. After all, what family is not all these things and more?
