With the surge in popularity the Star Wars has had following the Disney makeover, the marketing machine has been in overdrive. While there are some really cool toys and gadgets available, there is also some rubbish. For example, I saw a Kylo Ren perfume the other day in a local supermarket. I mean what is Kylo even meant to smell like? Even if I knew I wouldn’t assume it was nice. While we’re on smelling nice, did Darth Vader ever have to shower?
