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.
KeepMe sent us a few samples to test, and, as alluded to above, I am truly impressed by the packaging of the fragrances – from a collector perspective these are worth the money alone. The photos really don’t do the product justice, either. The boxes are made using a soft to the touch black card. All the Star Wars logos and characters that you see in the photos above are actually made with a glossy UV that reflects the light. The packaging of the Revenge, Droid, Rey and Galaxy is in a slick, Book format, telling the story of the characters; I may put mine on one of my Star Wars book shelves. They are that cool. The inspiration of the packaging seems to be the “Light” or the “Dark” side of the Force with Rebel Alliance and First Order symbols on the boxes as well as some key characters – Kylo Ren, BB8, Rey and a Stormtrooper.
Here’s a bit about the whole collection from the manufacturers to help you choose your favorite scent. All are in 50ml bottles unless stated:
Dark (unisex) – A powerful, dark explosion of mystical notes, permeating the air and encapsulating you in all that is dark and enticing.
Light (unisex) – A strong, fresh, pure infusion which enlightens the senses and refreshes the soul. It captures a warm ambiance and surrounds you in all that is good and inviting.
Rey (for women) – A powerful sweet, fruity and floral fragrance representing all that is strong, collected and sophisticated.
Droid (unisex) – An androgynous, energetic, citric and floral fragrance combined with spicy and musky elements representing all that is precocious and good spirited.
Galaxy (unisex) – A zesty, energetic, woody fragrance with warm and floral spicy notes representing all that is fearless and heroic.
Revenge (for men) – A dominant spicy aromatic fragrance with woody and capricious dark notes representing the very essence of the Dark Side of the force.
Star Wars Coffret Set (unisex) – 4 x 10ml electroplated fragrances for you to mix and match. The set contains the 10ml version of Galaxy, Droid, Light and Dark
My wife, Deanna, and I received a number of samples to test out, which we reviewed on CWK Show #74 (a must listen, for more detail on these excellent fragrances). The Travel Set is a winner for me, because it has a nice sample set, to give you a better idea of what to expect. We had the chance to try the Galaxy, Dark, Light and Droid fragrances which are all unisex. Deanna loved the Rey fragrance (and, speaking as her husband, I am thrilled she wants to wear it!), as well as the Light perfume; it is a little lighter and fresher, but again everything is just a question of taste.
For me, I think Dark is fantastic, with a nice blend of musk that is more unique than you might expect. In terms of fragrance, there is really something for everyone. The Revenge line was a bit too “Dark” for my taste, but every fragrance is clearly a high quality. Even if I didn’t like the perfumes I am happy to just have the cologne collection on my shelf in my Star Wars office/Coffee With Kenobi studio.
The product is currently available to buy online (you may ship to the U.S.) and in various stores in the UK.
