The gadget part attaches to the dock of the iPhone and contains an atomizer and smell tank. A person on the other end could deliver a particular smell through the other person’s device. Also, you can set the alarm to wake up to a particular aroma. Among other uses could be a bakery sending the smell of its freshly baked brownies to entice customers in.

Some of the scents in store of a Japanese company, Scentee, are traditional like jasmine and rose, natural like apple and mint, while others are unusual like curry and corn soup. The company claims that each cartridge lasts for about 100 puffs. The smells of short ribs, sizzling beef tongue and buttered potatoes can also be added to the gadget.
