We’ve all done it. Fancied yourself a Pikachu backpack. Maybe you thought that Zelda wallet looked pretty awesome or that Final Fantasy necklace was the perfect addiction to your geek chic look. We get you, man. You beautiful nerd, you.
However, Destiny has chosen to try something a little different. As well as the usual attire and trendy accessories, they’ve pushed ahead with the next obvious choice – Candles, baubles and ice cubes…
No we’re really not kidding. Someone somewhere out there thought that these were to be obvious big sellers. Who are we to say it won’t be? We love fire and ice. The ultimate adversaries. The battle for eternity.
And Christmas, well… Christmas is a given.
In fairness, the candles actually look very nice, although the Ghost candle holder accessory to go with them looks a bit awful… Still, as long as they’ve available in Europe, we may find ourselves sipping long drinks during bath time, sensuously aroused by the planet inspired aromas of Bungie’s upcoming fantasy epic. At least I hope so.
The available scents for the candles are currently as follows:
Earth – Spinmetal: A fresh aromatic blend of cut cedarwood and sandalwood infused with a sweet pine and warm resinous accords, mossy earthy tones in the base.
The Moon – Helium Filaments: Warm smoky accords fill the air and the comforting sound of crackling woods balanced with the rich amber and warm vanilla.
Mars – Relic Iron: Fresh and sappy green cactus layered with a warm floralcy of white flowers, tuberose, jasmine and rose.
Venus – Spirit Bloom: A refreshing white floral bouquet, jasmine, plumeria and orchid blossoms topped with citrus mandarin and bergamot. Shimmering white musk with a hint of coconut on the breeze.
The Dreadnaught – Wormspore: A comforting aroma with spicy and smoky notes. Woody mossy tones in the base topped with citrus.
The ice cube trays however have some stiff competition… They’re perfectly acceptable, if a little plain, but it’s a buyers’ market, and when you’ve got the likes of miniature Star Trek models to compete with, you’ve not really got a chance in hell, have you?
To top it all off, and to get you in the Christmas Spirit (perhaps a little early), they’re also marketing a selection of wicked Destiny 2 themed Christmas baubles… TAKE MY MONEY, YOU BRILLIANT BASTARDS!
Bungie 2 launches on Xbox and PS4 on September 6th, and on PC October 24th. Check out our thoughts on the Destiny Beta HERE!
