Sonic Stadium Press Release: Epic Scents Announces Sega Fragrances http://epic-scents.com/sonic-stadium-press-release-epic-scents-announces-sega-fragrances/ http://epic-scents.com/sonic-stadium-press-release-epic-scents-announces-sega-fragrances/#comments Fri, 28 Jun 2013 00:56:00 +0000 http://epic-scents.com/?p=1610 sonic-stadium-rectagle

My fellow Blue Believers… today marks a historic day, a historic day not just for Sonic fans, but for Sega fans as a whole. For years we have wondered, asked the question… ‘can I smell like Sonic?’ Today, we can finally give you the answer!

The dreams of thousands of Sega fans have been answered, you can soon smell like Sonic! In fact, you can soon smell like a whole range of Sega characters! Thats right my friends. Epic Scents, makers of such fragrances as MegaMan… yes that is a real product, have announced today their partnership with Sega to produce a range of products based off a range of Sega characters.

Details as to the exact nature of the products of characters in question were not disclosed, however, a release date of June 2013 was mentioned. If Sonic isn’t in the line, something has gone very wrong, however, that doesn’t stop me from offering a number of suggestions.

The Sonic, For those who want that fresh full of energy boost in the morning. Or how about the Ax Battler, nothing says “I AM A MANLY MAN DOING MANLY THINGS!” than smelling like a barbarian as you chop up wood for your dad. Or maybe ‘The Uncle Kaz’  for those who want to wow the ladies with their karaoke skills and at the same name put the young Yakuza’s in their place? And as for the ladies, how about ‘The Ulala’ For the pop tastic diva in us all? Or the Blaze Fielding, Strong, Independant, Powerful, and can summon a bazzoka strike with one click of a button?

Joking aside, I for one am genually looking forward to seeing and smelling these in the future, though I do worry the reaction I might get if I send someone a bottle of ‘Chao in Paris.’

No details on the exact release date or price were given. But we’ll keep you upto date with news as it comes to light.

Full press release is at follows.

Epic Scents says it plans to release its Sega inspired fragrances next month. The type of products the company is still under wraps. However, Epic Scents website alludes to air fresheners based on Sonic the Hedgehog as something that’s being worked on.

The company is known for creating air fresheners, colognes and perfumes. It was started by two chemists with a love of video games. Founders of the company say the goal of the firm is to create a line of scents that ‘evoke powerful emotions and memory responses’ for classic video games. Located in Connecticut, Epic Scents started out as a subsidiary of Bedoukian Research Inc. The company has over 40 years of experience in the Flavor and Fragrance industry.

Epic Scents has previous experience making video game scents. Last year, the firm partnered with Capcom to create a line of air fresheners based on Mega Man and Pronto Man. The air fresheners were produced based on customer feedback of what the two characters would actually smell like. Mega Man’s fresheners are reported to give off a clean dewy, ozonic and lightly floral scent. Pronto Man products were reported to carry scent characteristics such as rebellious, heroic and apple-cinnamony. Epic Scents says the air fresheners give off the delicate smell of Pronto Man’s favorite breakfast cereal.

The Mega Man and Pronto Man air fresheners were introduced at last year’s New York Comic Con. Epic Scents product line was also handed out as part of this year’s Emmy gift bags.

Those interested in checking out the Capcom air fresheners can pick up the products at Thinkgeek.com. The Mega Man air freshener currently runs for a price of $3.99. The Pronto Man product will cost only $1.79 at the site.

From the Hartford Courant http://epic-scents.com/hartford-courant/ http://epic-scents.com/hartford-courant/#comments Mon, 03 Jun 2013 22:57:33 +0000 http://epic-scents.com/?p=1254 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 plans to release more scents in coming months, though they can’t say which ones. In lieu of details, fans have offered suggestions on the company’s Facebook page: Captain America, Pokémon, Link, Zelda, various Mario characters, and Thunder Cats. Also, if the company sticks with Capcom characters, it has a deep bench of popular video game series to call from, such as Resident Evil, Street Fighter or any of the other characters from more than 50 Mega Man games.

A success with air fresheners could boost the idea of video game fragrances to individual perfumes or colognes, a higher-end application than the $2.99 air freshener, which should be available on the web in the next few months through Amazon or Thinkgeek.

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!
