    Looking through the Gosen catalog, I see they have scented overgrips. They come in lemon and lavender scent.
    This brings to mind an issue I have had with stinking racquets. The cause of the stench is multiple application of assorbant type overgrips, without removing the old overgrips. After countless playing/hitting sessions with the grips becoming wet with sweat and then drying overnight over and over again, the smell can be quiet powerful. On a few occasions I felt like I had to hurry to get the racquet off the machine, before I had to barf. :shock:
