From the Hartford Courant

The Hartford Courant LogoThe basic idea of making scents for video game characters was the product of a hallway conversation between two workers in the Bedoukian’s production department. David Bedoukian, son of company president Robert Bedoukian, and Drew Corcoran both loved video games and worked closely with fragrances, so it might have just been a matter of time. They started talking about how their favorite characters and games lacked any type of scent product.

“At first it was kind of a joke,” said Bedoukian, “but we knew we could make a great fragrance.”

After some development work, Epic-Scents approached Capcom, which, according to Kavanaugh, loved the idea. The partnership worked out some bugs, including a few failed scents — overly masculine fragrances for Mega Man and a red berry for Proto Man — which Kavanaugh said lacked the “strong, I-do-my-own-thing attitude.”

Soon a business plan emerged. The group said that they saw an opening in the market for inexpensive, high-quality gaming items that could be sold near a cash register in gaming stores like GameStop. Fragrance, they said, hadn’t penetrated gaming culture, as it had been in other places in pop culture.

“I think this kind of thing could be very successful and will change the way people think about their characters,” said Bedoukian. “It makes gamers more intimate with their characters.”

Epic-Scents at PAX East

Epic-Scents representatives will be walking the show at PAX East 2013 this weekend March 22-24, 2013 in Boston, MA.

Contact Us to schedule an appointment or give feedback regarding our products!

What is PAX?

Here’s the brief history from their website:

In 2004, the folks at Penny Arcade decided they wanted a show exclusively for gaming. Sure, comics, anime, and other nerd hobbies were cool, and those activities all had their own shows… so what about games? From that idea spawned a small 4,500 person event in Bellevue, Washington, focused on the culture and community that is gaming.

Since then, the show hasn’t looked back. Doubling in size each year until venue capacities were reached, in 2010 the show expanded into Boston for PAX East, drawing tens of thousands of attendees in the inaugural year. The shows in Seattle and Boston represent the two largest gaming events in North America!

The Holidays Are Coming

The Holidays are Coming… and That Means More Video Games!

I came to a frightening realization over the weekend. We are less than ten weeks away from Christmas day. The holidays, and as a result the holiday game rush, is about to come crashing down on us like a tidal wave.

The good news about recent years is that there have been real gems floating amidst the sea of games churned out to steal the money of unsuspecting shoppers. Last year Skyrim alone would have been enough to justify the holiday shopping season, but the 2011 holiday season was so crowded with amazing games that Mass Effect 3 and Bioshock Infinite retreated into 2012. Just think about that for a minute.

We’ve already been treated to some awesome games in the past month (Borderlands 2, X-COM: Enemy Unknown, Dishonored, and Skylanders Giants) and the hits are going to keep on rolling.

Things are starting to get very crowded. Next week brings us Assassin’s Creed III and Assassin’s Creed III: Liberation. The week after that is Halo 4 (on Election Day no less). Call of Duty Black Ops II comes out the week after that. Talk about a killstreak (see what I did there?). PlayStation All Stars Battle Royale and LEGO Lord of the Rings are in the mix as well.

Those are some great games. No doubt about that. But, if you ask me, the real fun will begin on Sunday, November 18th when Nintendo releases its long awaited WiiU along with the brand new (HD !!!!) Super Mario Brothers U. I’ve talked about the WiiU before, but as launch day gets closer my excitement level keeps on rising. I’m going to own this one folks. I am a HUGE Nintendo fanboi. I am about as rational about Nintendo and their products as Matthew Berry is for RG3 (Read: not one bit). I can’t pinpoint the exact moment when my completely irrational love for Nintendo started, but it was probably somewhere around the time I sprinted around my living room on Christmas day with my brother because we got a Super Nintendo. You don’t really recover from that sort of thing. Any other Nintendo fans in the house?

What about you folks? What game are you looking forward to the most? Sound off in the comments!

New York Comic Con: Highlights

Well folks, another New York Comic Con is officially in the books. The Epic-Scents booth was a huge success and I know I speak for everyone at the office when I say thank you to everyone who stopped by. It was amazing to have an opportunity to meet so many of our fans AND to get a chance to earn a whole bunch of new ones at the same time! We had some prime real estate near the LEGO booth and directly across from a major retailer so we had major foot traffic for the whole event. All in all, it was pretty sweet!

 

Let’s get to the business at hand shall we?
