Alternative to Lemon Oil?

My '88FPs board is pretty dry. I don;t think it's shrunk, the fret ends are well buried, and it plays nice.

I have some lemon oil that I used on a fender, and I just hated the smell. Is there an alternative, preferably with no odour. Also, has anyone had any issues oiling a jem board before due to the inlays? I was worried that the oil would deposit in the inlays and come out continually when playing.
