Perfumed Photographs, Anyone?

Scented/Fragrance/Aromatically Infused Photographic Representation

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.

“This product achieves a double impact—visually and via the sense of smell—engaging both senses simultaneously,” the inventors said. “It 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.”
