(Newser) – Smells like sci-fi spirit. A new line of aftershaves and perfumes is targeting the Star Trek fan base, reports the Daily Telegraph. Creator Genki Wear touts the "casual yet commanding" men's cologne Tiberius, branded after Captain Kirk's middle name, as a scent "difficult to define and impossible to refuse. In any universe."

Men can also dab on Red Shirt Cologne to "smell like the future, because tomorrow may never come." And the female Trekkie, however small a demographic, has not been forgotten. Women's scent Pon Farr takes its name from the Vulcan mating cycle. The fragrances, which retail for about $49, promise to "smell gorgeous on normal, non anorak wearers" as well as on Trekkies.
