    Exclamation A fragrance to smell like the opening of a brand new Apple product

    Scent of the unboxing of a Macbook Pro



    A group creates a fragrance that has the scent of an Apple product being opened for the first time

    Here is some weird news for this week.

    Do you like the smell of new thing?

    Apple things maybe?

    What about the possibility to experience it day by day or even you smelling like that?

    Too freaky isn't it?

    But you should now that there is a fragrance that smells just like that, specifically like opening a brand new Macbook Pro.

    Read this:

    The scent of an Apple product, sourcing the Macbook Pro fragrance.

    Greatest Hits is an artistic collaborative group comprising of Melbourne based artists Gavin Bell, Jarrah de Kuijer & Simon McGlinn. A few months ago these young artists approached Air Aroma seeking assistance with creation of a unique fragrance for their upcoming art exhibition. The aroma requested for the project was the scent of an Apple product being opened for the first time.

    A distinctive scent can be observed when unwrapping a newly purchased Apple product from its packaging. Apple fans will certainly recognize this smell. The scent created for Greatest Hits encompasses the smell of the plastic wrap covering the box, printed ink on the cardboard, the smell of paper and plastic components within the box and of course the aluminum laptop which has come straight from the factory where it was assembled in China.

    The process of creating this signature fragrance started with an initial meeting with our client to understand the concept and desired effect of the fragrance. Once this was established, the ingredients for the fragrance had to be sourced. The scent requested by our client was quite unusual so we contacted our fragrance suppliers in the South of France to send over samples of fragrances with the aroma of glue, plastic, rubber and paper. Air Aroma fragrance designers then used these samples as ingredients to create a range of signature blend fragrances. The blends, each with unique recipes were then tested in the Air Aroma laboratory until a final fragrance was ultimately selected.

    To replicate the smell a brand new unopened Apple was sent to our fragrance lab in France. From there, professional perfume makers used the scents they observed unboxing the new Apple computer to source fragrance samples. On completion the laptop was sent back to Australia, travelling nearly 50,000kms and returned to our clients together with scent of an Apple Macbook Pro.

    The fragrance will be diffused with the Air Aroma Aroslim diffuser for the duration of their artistic exhibition in Melbourne. The fragrance forms part of their exhibition at West Space, which is entitled ‘De facto Standard’. The Apple unboxing scent was created for use at this particular exhibition only and is not available for purchase on our online retail store for personal use.
    It's a shame that geeks and fanboys can't adquire this as for now.

    I thought fart sprays had been out for years
    Next Gen Console - i7 4770k@4.7GHZ + H100i, ASRock Z87E-ITX, Sapphire Radeon R9 290X , 16GB Crucial Ballistix Elite 1866@2400, Crucial m4 256GB mSATA SSD, 1GB WD Caviar Black, 64GB OCZ Agility 3 SRT cache. All in a red Bitfenix Prodigy.

    Better than XB1 or PS4 gaming PC for the same price as an XB1, should be pretty decent once Mantle starts to be more prominent in newer titles http://www.ebuyer.com/lists/list/307569 (updated 18/02/2014).
