What does J Lo, Paris Hilton, Hello Kitty and Lightning (the protagonist in the upcoming Final Fantasy XIII) have in common? Their own signature scents. Taking video game marketing to the next level, Square Enix will be releasing Lighting's Eau de Toilette one month after the game's launch in March. So what does a video game heroine smell like? The scent is described as having notes of peach, followed by rose and a feminine musk. It'll be all yours for about US$80. Some might say that's a bit pricey but judging from the early buzz of the upcoming game, it might be money better spent than on the actual game itself. Of course, coming from a family of Final Fantasy fans, it'll still be making its way to my home when it's out. We'll see if it's as bad as they say. In the meantime, I'm trying out Final Fantasy VI which my brother swears is a classic.
Side note: When I first saw Lightening, there was something oddly familiar about her yet I couldn't pinpoint it. Then it hit me. Doesn't she look like a tranny version of Cloud Strife?
