The popular body spray Lynx – called Axe in South Africa – has launched a new Marmite-fragranced scent as part of its Lynx Africa range in the UK.

According to the UK publication Mirror, the body spray smells of “lavandin [a lavender hybrid], white moss, and green herbs, along with woody profiles of creamy sandalwood and cedarwood –  unexpectedly met with a slightly salty punch of Marmite”.

It will also be available in a body wash.

‘We’ve created the scent for all the lovers, whether that’s Lynx or Marmite, but with the controversial nature of the spread, believe it also might help in keeping the haters at arm’s length,” a representative of Lynx said.

“By combining two iconic legends that have shaped dating and breakfast culture across the nation, we have created a product like no other that is sure to get lovers and haters spreading the news.”

Lynx, which is manufactured by Unilever and aimed at young males, is known as Axe in South Africa and the US.
