Taking You To The Dark (Or Light) Side: Star Wars Launch SIX New Unisex Scents Fit For Any Super-Fan

This time last year we were counting down the days until The Force Awakens hit cinemas; over the next couple of weeks I saw it four times, to the point where I could practically recite each line and wore a different character t-shirt on every visit. This year we've got our tickets to Rogue One booked and we're ready to re-visit a Galaxy Far Far Away once again; Star Wars season is undoubtedly upon us and is becoming somewhat of a festive tradition! Since the first film was launched back in December 1977, a whole universe has captured our imaginations and had an impact on every element of popular culture. It was a film franchise like no other, proving that a female lead character didn't have to be a damsel in distress (in fact, she could kick some butt and save the day herself,) and the shiny heroes were more flawed than any that came before them. It's no wonder that Star Wars is possibly the most celebrated film franchise of all time!


Whether you're a super-fan and have Star Wars merchandise in every corner of your home (we've got everything from poster art on the wall, to a Wookie Cookie tin in the kitchen) or you're an closet Jedi, this Christmas there's something new from Planet Jakku that may just be worth trading in those pieces of scrap metal for. Yep, there's a new collection of perfumes that embody the strength, bravery and determination it takes to be part of this fantasy world... The Star Wars fragrance collection includes six unique scents that represent some of our favourite characters from both the light and dark side of the force - and they're all surprisingly good! Four of them have just landed onto Boots.com and I just know you're going to love them.

REY: A powerful, fruity and floral fragrance that represents all that is strong and sophisticated, this scent is not your traditional feminine number. Although honeysuckle and jasmine keep it elegant, it's not sickly sweet or overpoweringly full of flowers; it's a subtle scent that I'm sure people will be intrigued by. 
Notes include mandarin, jasmine, honeysuckle, cassis and amber. 
BUY IT HERE PRICED £27.50

GALAXY: A zesty, energetic and woody fragrance that's warm and spicy, representing all that is fearless and heroic. The masculine undertones make it completely unisex (perfect for those women that like their scents rich, as well as guys that like their fragrance to subtly ooze old school appeal) and a scent that you'd expect to find at an atelier, not within a Star Wars bottle. 
Notes include grapefruit, violet, magnolia, clove and cedar. 
BUY IT HERE PRICED £27.50

DARK: A powerful explosion of mystical notes that encapsulate you in all that is dark and exciting. The combination of chocolatey notes mixed with the brightness of grapefruit keep this unusually fresh and inviting.
Notes include grapefruit, magnolia, violet, dark chocolate and vanilla. 
BUY IT HERE AS PART OF A DUO, PRICED £45.00

LIGHT: A strong, fresh infusion with enlightens the senses and refreshes the soul. It's reminiscent of those 90's unisex scents we all loved, but in a nostalgic way that leaves me wanting to spritz this all over. The perfect contrast to the Dark Side.
Notes include lemon, rosemary, cardamom, sandalwood and patchouli.

Also available within the franchise are DROID (an androgynous and energetic fragrance that combines citrus and floral with spice and musk,) and REVENGE (a dominant and spicy scent with a woody and capricious dark aroma,) but these are the four scents you'll be able to pick up via Boots.com (or even have them delivered to your local store.) My personal fave is undoubtedly GALAXY as it's unusual and earthy without being too overpowering, while the LIGHT & DARK gift set makes the perfect Christmas treat for any fan - no matter their age, gender or usual scent preference.

Most film franchises launch scents that are incredibly basic and the juice inside is often very one-dimensional; the cheesy character bottles are a sure fire way to capitalise on immediate success at the box office, but they're not the way to develop a more long-term way to support a franchise. What I really like about the Star Wars fragrances is that they've been developed with a slightly older and more sophisticated customer in mind than you may expect, mirrored by the elegant and simplistic bottle design. From the moment you open it, the bottle provides an experience - especially as it's held within a little storybook that you'll definitely want to keep. You wouldn't be embarrassed to pop this on your dressing table, and every Star Wars fan would be pleased to find one of these wrapped up under their tree come Christmas.


The Star Wars fragrance collection is available now from Boots.com priced from £27.50.
The Light & Dark side duo is priced £45.00 for the pair.
