My son and his buddies may battle all sorts of enemies when they pile into a room to play a few hours of video games. I’ve battled the smell of those boys.

Microsoft may have an odd answer to grody gamer syndrome, with the planned release of a new line of personal hygiene products called Lynx Xbox, according to a news release first reported on by Gamespot on Tuesday. A new line of products will include shower gel, body spray and deodorant.

The neon green product looks like something you’d expect to ooze out of a game console, but the official description of the smell is rather pleasant:

“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. 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.”

The partnership teams Microsoft with the folks who brought us Axe body spray. Apparently it will only be available in Australia and New Zealand to start.

“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,” Tania Chee, the business group lead for Xbox Australia / New Zealand, said in statement. “Now, powering up can be as simple as a quick spray before you head out the door.”
