You ever just sit back and ponder what Sonic the Hedgehog would smell like? He's known for eating chili dogs, so would he smell like that or something else? He also likes running through lush green landscapes, so would he perhaps smell instead like freshly washed laundry drying in a summer breeze? It really makes you think, doesn't it?

Thankfully, Sega is here to save us all from life's greatest mystery. The studio announced and launched their own range of colognes based on three of their more popular franchises. One of those colognes is the "Sonic the Hedgehog 'Blue Blur' Cologne." Priced at a mere £29.99, you too could douse yourself in a scent that has notes of "fresh citrus, grapefruit zest, Caribbean lime, Mediterranean lemon, ocean breeze, melon fade, leather, suede, and cedar."

The store page notes that this is a unisex fragrance and would make for the "perfect gift for any fan of the Sonic the Hedgehog franchise."

Perhaps you're looking for something a bit more "manly." Perhaps you need a scent that has notes of "antique oak, cedarwood, beeswax infused with smoky bourbon, leathery rose, and pimento." If so, then the "Yakuza 'Bourbon and Smoke' Unisex Cologne is the right fit for you.

If neither of those strike your fancy, Sega does have one more trick up their sleeve. They are also offering a cologne based off of the Shenmue franchise. "Shenmue 'Tobacco and Gold' Unisex Cologne" includes a fragrance blend of "cardamom, bergamot, golden tobacco, orris, sage, and patchouli."

These three fragrances seem to be exclusive (for now) to the UK Sega Shop. Whether or not they come to the North American shop is really anybody's guess right now. All three will begin shipping to buyers in December.

As PC Gamer points out, this isn't Sega's first cologne rodeo. They apparently have a number of Yakuza branded colognes out in Japan. There was also a Sonic the Hedgehog Eau de toilette released in the early 1990s.
