Re: Scent-enhanced marketing
 location-aware odour-enhanced ads


Wow! Most of us are still bracing ourselves for location ads (or waiting for location-based ads done well). Throwing scent in there would be a whole new ball game.

Smells like ...
A few can't-miss varieties: 1. New baby (even grandma would buy a smell-o-phone for this). 2. Pizza. 3. Jamaican cigarette. But realistically, we're probably years away from this hitting the mainstream because this needs to be smartphone-enabled.

NTT got there first
They were pushing something called iAroma several years ago. One of several attempts they made to get this going. It's all nonscense in my view.

On hold your nose
Funnily enough, we've had smellycomms for years in the UK - they're called phone boxes. The range of scents is quite limited though.

Scent-enhanced marketing
As idiotic as it may seem, there is huge market for this: odour-enhanced ads. Even more: location-aware odour-enhanced ads. You can easily ignore an ad while your are passing that french bakery or that candy shop. But if your mobile phone starts smelling sweet like fresh bread or... it will be harder to resist.

Recall that human senses of smell and taste are psychologically much stronger than other senses - we associate pleasant and less pleasant scents&tastes with events and memories (Marcel Proust, anyone?). Something yet unexplored by marketing experts.

Who would pay for a more expensive phone? And keep buying scent refills? Don't worry, someone will come up with a reasonable business case. We are all willing to sell our privacy (soul, huh) for a new set of cheap towels.

A snortal
Takes me back to the heroic efforts of Digiscents, the product that let you smell the internet via a snortal.  http://blog.chaddickerson.com/2006/05/26/great-moments-in-dotcom-history-digiscents/
