OK, so when you think of fragrance and video games, your mind might wander more towards a stuffy, dark basement game room, cold pizza and Cheetos sending their odors into the air, than towards something, well, nice smelling. Epic-Scents is setting out to change that perception, however, by designing scents that target the essence of video game characters, replicating something of the feeling of playing your favorite games. You know the rush you get when you beat that particularly fearsome boss, or when you actually completely finish a game? We remember the Super Mario Bros. quests of our childhood, and it's true, those experiences have a certain unique nostalgia. The scientists at Epic-Scents have figured out how to bottle that nostalgia, with a line of fragrance-based products developed to represent some of our favorite classic video game heroes. The collection will start with Capcom's Mega Man and Proto Man Characters, with air fresheners, followed shortly by perfumes and other scented products.

I love these two as a couple. What a festive way to celebrate two important events in their life. Mariah looks like a dream.
