"I Share My Dreams with Ghosts" - Scenting My Two Favourite Rebels
As many of you already know, I'm a hopeless Star Wars geek, and one of my favourite things in the whole SW universe is Andor series. My dear friend Bhavnadarira once got this idea of scenting favourite fictional characters, and I have done that a lot. Today we're scenting my two favourite rebels, Cassian Andor and Luthen Rael.
Cassian Andor's signature scent would definitely be A*Men Pure Malt - down to earth, yet extremely revolutionary and determined, almost stubborn. An outsider but with a very warm heart. A true working class hero who uncompromisingly gives his full heart for his cause and is always true to his word.
You just walk in like you belong.
Once you get to the best spot, light the place up. Make ten men feel like a hundred.
Cassian's unexpected ally, Luthen Rael, has a different strategy but the same goal. He is a true rebel by heart too but he wears masks to feint the Empire. He is The Bug. Protest. Unsettling and disjointed, like the official description of the fragrance says.
I've made my mind a sunless space. I share my dreams with ghosts. I wake up every day to an equation I wrote 15 years ago from which there's only one conclusion, I'm damned for what I do. My anger, my ego, my unwillingness to yield, my eagerness to fight, they've set me on a path from which there is no escape. I yearned to be a savior against injustice without contemplating the cost and by the time I looked down there was no longer any ground beneath my feet. What is my sacrifice? I'm condemned to use the tools of my enemy to defeat them. I burn my decency for someone else's future. I burn my life to make a sunrise that I know I'll never see.
