It’s a match made in a teenage dream: Lynx (known in the U.S. as Axe) is teaming up with Microsoft’s Xbox to bring the smell of the iconic black and green console to Australian and Kiwi gamers.

And what exactly is that smell? According to a description from the company published by Game Spot, it’s “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.”

The range, consisting of a body spray, deodorant and shower gel, also contains a range of natural essential oils.

Xbox by Lynx will be powering into grocery stores across Australia and New Zealand in July 2019; no word yet on if or when it will become available to consumers in the rest of the world.
