I love it when things I ordered months ago suddenly turn up in the post!  Such as today, when this suddenly arrived out of the blue.



Yes, that is Cloud Strife and Sephiroth Eau de toilette.  *____*

I've had a whiff of Cloud's Eau de toilette before courtesy of kaorismash, it is really quite nice!  Though my olfactory senses are not particularly experienced or refined, I shall attempt to describe.  Cloud's is more of a traditional musk, reminiscent of talcum powder, with just a hint of what could be vanilla and coconut thrown in.  Sephiroth's is decidedly sharper, spicy, and even a bit metallic on the first whiff.

akahfkjshfjkshf, GUYS, THIS HAS MADE ME KIND OF FANGIRLY AND STUPID.  I MEAN, MORE THAN USUAL.  Oh Square, you treat us too well~

They totally smell really good mixed together, too, by the way. Very complimentary.

IT IS, BUT WHY ON EARTH ARE YOU POINTING THAT OUT? Should have wiped it down before photo, regret!

ASDLKJFASLKJFSLKDF, SO HIGH, KAORICHAN. I HAVE MAYBE SPRAYED THEM ON TO SEPARATE WRISTS AND AM SNIFFING THEM ALTERNATIVELY. *___*

IT SERIOUSLY WORKS REALLY WELL. Like, Cloud's scent blunts Sephiroth's.

This is awesome for words really. :D :D Sadly my fandoms aren't as epic. :D

Aren't as epic yet, right? ;) To be fair, FFVII took a good ten years to get to this point.
surealistic_des
Sep. 1st, 2010 02:09 pm (UTC)
;D Well they always said VII was the epic one out of the FFs, which I beg to differ. I'm bias for FFVIII. And not to mention FFXII is growing on me, despite everyone :| :|

And on going on the topic of the FF stuff, I was crushed when they stopped selling the potion bottles, granted the liquid inside were disgusting, but the p-potions, ;A; I think they were energy drinks?

btw your pillar pair fic, the one with Ryoma getting tossed out by Nanjiroh? It made me cry ;A; and it was also wonderful too ♥ ♥
sinnatious
Sep. 2nd, 2010 08:51 am (UTC)
FFXII was most excellent! Although I didn't like the story as much as some of the earlier FFs... Balthier was cool, though. And Vaan was fun too until he became a background character and utterly irrelevant to the plot. :( But I like all of the FFs, really, cannot play favourites.

They still sell potions! They release a new one for each game. The FFXIII potions were disgusting, though. The Dissidia ones, on the other hand, were delicious and somewhat addictive. Darn Japan and them actually meaning it when something is 'limited edition'.

D: Des! Why are you reading back catalogue of old awful fic! *cringes* Please to not be reading anything written in 2009. :| (Thank you, though. ^_^; Um, sorry about the crying bit.)

OMG! I am most amused haha XD! Are these for men or women? Both really right?

If men want Cloud or Sephiroth fangirls hanging off them, forget the Lynx effect, the Cloud/Sephiroth effect is much greater!!!

or for women who want a whiff of their favourite FF7 man? Just taking in their aroma all day.......and night XD

Sep. 1st, 2010 11:49 am (UTC)
Unisex perfumes, yes! They would suit either gender I think.

Ha ha, Harmony pointed out, THIS IS NOW REQUIRED FOR CLOUD AND SEPHIROTH COSPLAYERS. Not that they need help getting fangirls hanging off them. Square may have very well created a monster.

play-asia.com! I'm not sure if they have any left in stock, though - I pre-ordered quite far in advance, hence my surprise at their arrival. There's a Lightning one as well!

My eyebrow is raised speculatively at you, Sin. I'm highly disappointed in your reckless spending on a meaningless fandom-related pursuit.

*hmph* Fangirls.

Oh and just to be clear I am not jealous in the slightest. It's not like I'm poor or anything and can't afford such things and I'm totally NOT not prone to getting migraines when I so much as sniff such things... Not jealous. Not in the slightest.

Oh again, I noticed you've been posting Fifth Act over at FF.net so I figure I'll wait until you post chapter 35, then I'll post my secondary fanfic if that's okay.
sinnatious
Sep. 2nd, 2010 09:08 am (UTC)
I'm terribly disappointed in myself, too. You'd best not follow me down this path. If you ever find yourself suddenly indulging in such frivilous, fangirlish purchases, please, just send them my way so that only one of us may fall.

Of course it's okay! It's your fanfic - you could have posted it whenever you want. I only hope you're able to perform those fancy font tricks on FFnet, too.
teekoness
Sep. 2nd, 2010 06:37 pm (UTC)
Alas, I suspect I won't be able to do the fancy font tricks. FF.net's changes in the last few years has made stylizing down-right impossible. It's highly frustrating. Maybe I'll settle with making it bold and italic.

I know, but it seems to be common courtesy to ask. It's not like we're making any money at this.

I think it wound up being about $120 all up for the two of them? Probably a bit more when you take shipping into account. Which is, you know, a lot, but I wasn't necessarily being sensible at the time. :| *DOESN'T REGRET IT AT ALL*.

And-and-and. That sounds like the most perfect scent for either of them-- both of them-- EVER.

ASDKLJDFHASH, OMG I WANTED THESE!!!! *A* I didn't know you could order them, I thought they were off the market already.
Weren't they like, $70 each? Eeep!
They made Cloud and Sephy aroma therapy candles too. Just throwing that out there. lol.
I've had conversations with my friends about what these would smell like. We decided Cloud's would smell like either motor grease, hair gel, chocobo poo, dirt, blood, or any combination of the above, and Sephy's would smell like smoke or blood, or both.
Where does COCONUT come from? Cloud must be spending too much time in his Costa del Sol villa. . .

I think I got them for about sixty? But exchange rates were pretty good at the time.

Ha ha, I've been hearing about these candles! But no, I think I've been silly enough already. NO REGRETS. I wonder how long it will take Square to realise that they could theme almost anything FFVII-related and it will sell like hotcakes.

Maybe we've stumbled across Cloud's favourite snack?! :O

I... erm... I DON'T KNOW
Cloud slashed his way through another disc-like robot whose limited AI had given it the notion that crackling with thunder energy while taking a leap at Cloud would prevent its immediate demise. He forced himself to relax his left shoulder, which had been steadily twitching because he was there again.

He’d stopped whirling around, huge blade at ready, after the first three days because there was never anything to see. He’d startled Zack into inhaling a good mouthful of coffee and hacking himself purple in the face before he’d resigned himself to the fact that the man was too good at hiding and it wouldn’t be until he was wound up tighter than Tifa’s biological clock with paranoia that he would feel the presence itching across his shoulder blades again.

Sephiroth was stalking him.

Cloud entertained a brief moment of empathy for the small furry creatures whose only warning was an ominous shadow gliding over their heads before their lives ended with a pathetic squeak. He shook his head and stabbed downwards into the last robot. It made a hiccupping squeal before shorting out in a flash of sparks. He’d found himself alone on the 49th floor that morning. Zack was visiting Aerith and Kunsel had only made a weak excuse about having to check up on something, but he’d text him later, before vanishing as well. Hojo hadn’t reared his ugly head today, either, and so Cloud had drifted into the training room and flipped on one of the simulation switches, hoping that killing something would ease the dread that had settled heavily over his shoulders sometime around breakfast.

He stood still in the centre of the room as the holographic desert flickered out.

“What is it that you want?” he said, mostly to himself.

He twitched embarrassingly and brought the collected six-blades around into a semi-crouched guard when the voice, smooth as black ice, responded.

“It’s quite simple. I intended to corner you while you were alone and have my wicked way with you.”

“Your—” the tip of his sword dipped alarmingly. “What?”

Sephiroth’s lips spread in a slow smile as he stepped forward using the rolling gait that struck fear into the hearts of mere mortals. Cloud’s vision briefly blurred as a towering black wing appeared over the man’s shoulder and the ruins of Shinra Tower flickered into the corners of his eyes. He blinked rapidly, expecting the sharp sting in his left shoulder at any moment.

What Sephiroth actually said was “Do you believe in love at first sight?”

Cloud’s double vision cleared, leaving a wingless Sephiroth standing in the training room before him, the tip of First Tsurugi a hair’s breadth away from his chest.

Sephiroth raised a hand, the creak of leather filling the room, and slowly but inexorably pushed the sword out and away from between them. He stepped forward again, and Cloud quickly weighed his chances, fighting the instant urge to leap away. If he jumped to that wall there and twisted to propel himself over Sephiroth’s head like that

“Or, I suppose, love at first clash in our case.”

Sephiroth leaned over him and a wisp of silver hair fell free across his cheek and brushed over Cloud’s jaw, bringing with it a... hint of musk?

“You see, Cloud,” said Sephiroth when the blond didn’t seem to be any state to contribute to the conversation, “even our eau de toilette complement each other.”

Sephiroth was the one who had been filching his cologne?

“I’ve thought of a wonderful present for you, Cloud,” Sephiroth said, his lips ghosting over warm skin.

Later, when Sephiroth was watching a gash—courtesy of a point blank Cross Slash—across his chest heal with the maddening itch of overactive mako, he didn’t look up as Genesis flopped gracefully into the seat across from his desk.

“Can you not provoke him for once?”

Sephiroth grinned and toyed idly with a small glass bottle. Scent filled the air.

----------------

I mean... You were talking about perfume shipping and then there was a new chapter of Fifth Act and my brain shorted out and when I came to, this had happened. And I know it's excessively cracky and I probably just stole someone's idea and stepped on some toes and it's not even good at all and...

Please... erm... don't hurt me?

Whew! I'm just glad you're not upset at me for stomping into Fifth Act-verse and brutalizing all your characters without asking. Was seriously worried. Not fishing for reassurance here. Dunno the protocol behind these things.

Anyway. AHAHAHAHA. Spreading the brain breakage 'cause cliffhangers make me ded, especially the ones twanging with tension and understated dread. *______*

Also. Also. I've just realized how bloody many reviews you must get per chapter, and that puts your replying to all my brainless chatter into a whole new light.

Re: And Anon says
NOT AT ALL. It's fanfic. You are welcome to stomp around all you like, it would be a bit silly of me to get precious about it. (Especially when it delivers such quality crack!) If anything, it's a huge compliment! Some writers can be finnicky about it I guess, but I've never been a big believer in protocol.

Your reviews are a highlight to reply to! ^_^ They're always original! The vast majority FFnet reviews come in one of five flavours - 'cool story bro', 'yay this thing I wanted to happen happened', 'nooo this thing I didn't want to happen happened', 'This won't be slash, right?' and 'Please make this slash.' So truly. I treasure them. ;)

(Also, I am still laughing to myself over the 'wound up tighter than Tifa's biological clock' line. INSPIRED.)
