It’s the holiday season, and that means we’re gonna see plenty of gaming gimmicks for gifting this Christmas. UK retailer GAME is no stranger to this, offering up things like Christmas dinner in a can in previous years. For 2020, the retailer has come up with something all gamers desire: some themed perfume sets. Most importantly, there’s a luxury Mario perfume available. The “Eau de Plumber” set is “Italian-inspired,” apparently, and the bottle is shaped a bit like Mario’s head. The perfume lid becomes Mario’s famous red hat, and things are starting to take shape.
GAME’s tongue-in-cheek perfume description is quite amusing though. According to the listing, the bottle contains “deep earthy notes of toadstool, balanced with high notes of peach and daisy, and mid-tones of grass lands.” Of course, these “notes” all refer to different Nintendo characters and series elements. Unfortunately, it appears to be currently out of stock.
If the Mario perfume theme of Eau de Plumber isn’t enough for gifting this Christmas, you could also look at GAME’s other option. The F.P.S perfume set is shaped like a grenade and is probably more suited to Call of Duty enthusiasts. These perfumes are a whopping £19.99 (about $30) and contain 200 ml of liquid. We think that’s a bit pricey for a gimmick, but if you’re interested, knock yourselves out.
