Eau My: George Takei treks out his own cologne

You watch George Takei on "Star Trek." You follow him on Facebook. Now, smell like him, too.

Eau My cologne
A unisex cologne for Takei fans. Tru Fragrance

George Takei, famous for his role as Sulu on "Star Trek", as well as his more recent role as an Internet-conquering social-media star, has joined the ranks of Bruce Willis and One Direction by offering his own branded perfume. The spray-on cologne is dubbed "Eau My," a punny reference to his catchphrase, "Oh myyyyy."

Takei teased fans, asking them to guess the name of the new fragrance. His Facebook followers offered up some real gems, including "Old Space," "Takei Me Now," and "Red Shirt."

The cologne is described as having the following laundry list of smells: mandarin zest, Italian bergamot, fresh ozone, night-blooming jasmine, white freesia petals, sensual woods, crystallized amber, soft skin musk, and vetiver. This should help freshen up your tribbles.

Naturally, Eau My is available for preorder through Amazon, the site Takei often frequents to leave funny reviews of products ranging from yodeling pickles to the "Best of David Hasselhoff" CD.

Though the actual cologne isn't available quite yet, reviewers are already leaving their opinions of the product. Amazon reviewer Dimestone writes, "Finally we can all smell the way a respectable Starfleet Officer should, whether it be fighting against the Romulans, negotiating a peace-treaty with the Klingon Empire or meeting the fate of your red shirted counterparts. Just remember to set your phasers to stunning and.......Make it so!

The cologne comes in a surprisingly subtle package, so it won't automatically tip people off to your extreme geekiness if they see it on your bathroom counter.

Eau My: $39.99. Smelling like George Takei? Priceless.
