Final Fantasy XIII Toilet Water is Coming Soon

Illustration for article titled Final Fantasy XIII Toilet Water is Coming Soon

What? What?! That's what "eau de toilet toilette," means, right? Oh, fine, it's perfume, specifically a fragrant homage to Final Fantasy XIII, and it'll be available a month after the game's release in North America.


The 50 ml bottle of "Lightning," inspired by the character of the same name, will cost 7,140 yen or about $83. It's described as having notes of "yellow peach," citrus, "lily of the valley," and bunch of other herbs and spices that Google translate could not parse out for me. The bottle of smell-nice will be ready in April.

Also, for you French majors out there, I'm aware of the difference between "eau de toilet toilette" and "parfum." The latter is more concentrated. The former you splash on after toileting toiletteing yourself. See, I'm not an uncultured lout.

I finally figured out what it is about FFXIII I dislike.

Don't get me wrong. I want this game, I want it bad. I'll buy it the day it lands, and play the hell out of it. But it's too sterile. Everything about it, the world, the characters, lack any sort of grit at all. FFX was like this and FFXII kind of slid back that world was a little 'dirty' in parts.

Yet everything I see about FFXIII makes me think of labs, hospitals, and places where a germ wouldn't be seen... ever. I don't like that and I think that's kind of why I liked FFVII and FFVI so much.

Those worlds had grit and grime and death and decay and you could see it, you could feel it.

Nothing about FFXIII looks like that to me. It's as if the whole of the world was made in a test tube and carefully laid out—no touching!—to be seen.
