Xbox Deodorant And Shower Gel Revealed; Xbox Creator Responds, Stephen Colbert Weighs In
"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."
What does Xbox smell like? Well, if you buy your groceries from supermarkets in Australia and New Zealand, you may soon be able to find out. Just ahead of E3 2019, Microsoft has partnered with Lynx (known as Axe in the US) to create a new fragrance called Lynx Xbox. The range includes body spray, deodorant, and shower gel, so really all of your bases are covered.
The official description is simply delightful:
"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."
Xbox ANZ boss Tania Chee said in a statement that users can spray or wash themselves with Xbox Lynx to "power up" before heading out the door in the morning.
Xbox Lynx will be available from July at grocery stores and pharmacies across Australia and New Zealand. There is no word yet on if it'll be released in other parts of the world.
The creator of the Xbox, Seamus Blackley, said on Twitter that he has no comment about the new line of Xbox body wash. He seems upset about its existence.
I seriously and honestly have no comment. I have no idea what a comment would even be on this. I’m frankly thinking of just going and drinking heavily at this point. https://t.co/hWZVyEHXjh— Seamus Blackley (@SeamusBlackley) June 4, 2019
Comedian and late night TV host Stephen Colbert, whose show airs on GameSpot CBS (whose parent company owns GameSpot) also responded to the Xbox body wash with a joke of his own.
Microsoft is releasing an Xbox shower gel, which is good because I’ve NEVER washed my Xbox.— Stephen Colbert (@StephenAtHome) June 6, 2019
Next up for Xbox is its E3 2019 press conference where Microsoft is expected to "go big." Among other things, Microsoft is expected to announce a next-generation Xbox and show more of Halo Infinite.
