Spray Yourself With The Scent Of Final Fantasy XIII

By Spencer . November 26, 2009 . 10:41pm


When a major Final Fantasy game comes out Square Enix prepares toys and soft drinks. We’re used to those. They have one more tie-in product for Final Fantasy XIII – perfume.


A month after the game comes out in Japan, fans can purchase a bottle of Lightning eau de toilet. The aroma is described as a sweet peach smell followed by rose and then a feminine musk. Lovely.


You can get 50mLs of Lightning for a suggested retail price of 7,140 yen ($83).

    It sounds like it smells a bit more pleasant than the Cloud one, at least.

    It amazes me that Squenix will do this for money, yet they basically turn down free money by not putting up their back catalog of games on PSN. And I don’t mean just their PS1 stuff, most of their PSP stuff isn’t available.

    • The Japan PSN has almost their entire PS1 library. It’s ridiculous. Not to mention, FF VII is STILL the #2 download in the US PSN. They have no reason not to put more games up to download!

        I think this is more like a fragrance company pitches the idea to S-E, says they’ll put up most of the production money for it….you just give us the use of the name and voila. Kinda like how Donald Trump works. Whereas the PSN idea takes too much of S-E’s time and effort at the moment to invest

    “feminine musk”

    They should have a commercial w/ Snow, he would take a whiff and go “Nee-san…” haha, like one of those funny MGS4 TV spots for Snake’s energy drink.

    SE will release personal air cans next, just you watch.

    “Wow, it smells like chocobos!”

    • …That sounds disgusting. Still, it’d sell. They could take dog poop and put in in a container that says “Final Fantasy” and THAT would sell.

  • I never knew that lightning was measured by mLs :P

  • The bottles look nice, but I’ll still stay far away from it.

  • they should include a sample size as a pre-order or something :P
