The product is being introduced with the long-winded name Scented/Fragrance/Aromatically Infused Photographic Representation. Invented by Perry Francis & Eugene Dozier of Jamaica, NY, these are laser-printer photographic papers infused with various long-lasting scents and designed to be used in various applications.
The paper comes in the form of wall posters, calendars, stationary, note cards, transfer appliques for hats and T-shirts, buttons, flyers, coupons, menus, greeting cards and more. The long-lasting yet volatile scent molecules incorporate scent into the paper in the pulp stage of the product and lay a shot of scent emulsion down atop the finished paper, sealing it with a removable peel-off overlay.
â€œThis product achieves a double impactâ€”visually and via the sense of smellâ€”engaging both senses simultaneously,â€ the inventors said. â€œIt allows an individual to admire someone while at the same time being able to smell the distinctive scent, like when viewing a superstar. In the same manner, viewing a mountain scene with a brook trickling through the photo would not only create a pleasing vision but offer the characteristic aroma of that location making one feel as though there! The Scented/Fragrance/Aromatically Infused Photographic Representations will make you feel like you are right there with whatever or whoever is in the photograph.â€
