Microsoft’s New Big Project Is… Body Wash?

Love the Xbox? Well, I guess now you can smell like one

The world of gaming is one of the fastest growing markets in the world. Gaming products have been implemented in the form of furniture suitable for gamers, and food and drink that help a gamer laser in their focus on the screen. Now, hygiene is the next step.

Microsoft and Axe have teamed up to make their own line of personal care products called “Xbox Lynx” which will feature body wash, shower gel, and deodorant. All of course, Xbox themed.

“We see Xbox fans achieve incredible things every day, and we wanted to celebrate that elevated skill, passion and determination by creating something truly special,” said Tania Chee, the business group lead for Xbox Australia and New Zealand.

What does it smell like you may ask? Well, according to Chee and Microsoft, it smells like “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”. I suppose that’s nerd-talk for ‘it smells good’.

It also contains a wide variety of essential oils that are pivotal to skin care.

I guess you no longer have to smell like Hot Pockets and Mountain Dew while clocking in 12 hours of Fortnite. Instead, you’ll smell like a pro!
