Eau De MacBook: Artists Create the Scent of Opening a New Apple Product

The sense of smell is very powerful and can trigger good feelings (or bad ones, like that night you thought Tequila was a great idea). How about that feeling when you opened the box to that shiny new gadget you’ve been coveting? Three Australian artists have captured that smell – the “aroma’ of glue, plastic, rubber and paper – and worked with fragrance design agency Air Aroma to bring you that fragrance as part of their upcoming ‘De Facto Standard‘ exhibition.
Apple fanboys should hold onto their wallets as the fragrance is not available to the public and no actual consumer product is planned.

USA On Your Face

Yes, these exist. Now you can wear the USA on your face (not valid in Hawaii, Alaska or territories). Only $208 at Amazon. Or, you could just take that 200 bucks and throw it into the street.
