Scented shirt covers your stink with the sweet smell of roses

Nobody likes to be stinky, but most of us take care of the problem with regular showers and deodorant. But if that type of hygiene takes too much time out of your day, a Japanese company has introduced a shirt that can cover up your smelly self.

The Otoko Kaoru shirt (translates as "good smelling man") has tiny capsules embedded in the collar, and when rubbed against your neck, it releases a subtle odor of menthol and roses. The manufacturer says that the fragrance feature lasts about ten trips through the wash, after which it wears just like a regular shirt.

The Otoko Kaoru shirt is available now in Japan for about $35. There are no plans to offer it in the USA.
