What Does An Xbox Smell Like?
Yes, you read the headline correctly. Microsoft will be coming out with Xbox themed body wash. It might also not shock you to find out that they have partnered with Axe body spray to make it possible. Other lifestyle products have crept into the market here and there. A few gaming companies have tried their hand at energy drinks for instance. But this is definitely the first time the gaming world and hygiene products have crossed paths.
There will be Xbox themed deodorant, body wash, and shower gel. So if you ever wanted to smell like an Xbox, now is your time. The product is scheduled to launch in July of this year. Microsoft wants gamers to use this fragrance to give them a little boost before they leave the house. According to Microsoft, the scent smells like fruit, various types of wood, and herbs.
“Lynx Xbox is a fresh scent of pulsing green citrus, featuring top notes of kaffir lime and winter lemon, aromatic herbal middle notes of mint and sage, and woody bottom notes of patchouli and clearwood.” They also said, “Containing a range of natural essential oils, the Xbox Lynx range comes with a sleek new look and features a body spray, deodorant, and shower gel.”
This is a very interesting choice by Microsoft. No one should bat an eye at the fact that the gaming industry may branch out into other markets. But personal hygiene is probably the last place anyone would imagine seeing an Xbox symbol. Only time will tell if this was a good business move on behalf of Microsoft. If this does for whatever reason succeed, what other gaming-themed things will be start see at drug stores?
