Introducing the Karma Scented Ladies Golf Grips

scented_grips
Hireko Golf is introducing another golf industry first – a line of scented golf grips for women.  Before you say “What were you guys thinking”, I have to admit I was a bit skeptical at first when it was mentioned by our product planning committee.  After all, I am not exactly the target market for these products. The idea of the Karma scented grip spawned that different fragrances could be mixed into rubber and each scent would provide a different therapeutic benefit.

When I got home, I entrusted my wife to give her honest assessment of what she thought about the idea.  Boy did I open up a can of worms.  She went on to explain aroma therapy, what is does, how it works, just how popular it is.  Blah, blah, blah, blah, blah…for 30 minutes explaining what a great idea it was and why hadn’t anybody done it before.

Then it dawn on me when I looked around our living room area.  In ever nook and cranny laid a jar, votive or a decorative vessel holding some sort of smelly candle or bouquet of potpourri. If it works at home, there must also be a thriving market for the Karma Scented Series grips when women are out on the course.  If men can enjoy a smelly cigar while playing a round of golf, women have every right to neutralize that smell with something a little more pleasant.

Also, the Karma Scented Grips are receiving quite a bit of national press. Golf Digest for Woman even blogged about them!

For those of you out there who don’t believe in all this aroma-therapy hocus pocus, you have to admit at the least that these colorful, floral designs that will appeal to a lot of female golfers. I am just waiting for us to figure out how to make a bacon-scented men’s grip for me…

    What activates the odor on the new scented grips and what is the estimated shelf life? Is my shop going to smell like a perfume counter? Not that there is anything wrong with that, might be a good air freshner. There you go, another selling feature.

    Roy:

    Nothing activates the grips per se, the grips are pre-scented, but not overpowering that it will make your shop smell like the local florist. The scent should last a year, perhaps longer if they are kept stored.
