Rose-scented micro-capsules

The garments, called Otoko Kaoru, have special rose-scented micro-capsules in the collar which, when they come in contact with the skin, release a (presumably manly) fragrance. That way, the wearer smells, well, like something, all day long.

      One of the bigger activewear manufacturers was also working on scented shirts…don’t know what ever became of the project.

    Here goes some Extra Rose Menthol! The ad copy claims it to be a relaxing scent, and lasts through about 10 washing cycles.

    Funny thing is orientals (Chinese, Japanese? not sure) do not have anywhere near as much body odour as us stinky Westerners so funny, in a way, they’v come up with it. Though, I guess smelling nice is different to not smelling at all!
