So, do you recall the smell wafting from the box the first time you opened up your Macbook Pro? Yeah, me neither. But here are some folks who have recreated that scent for an upcoming exhibition in Melbourne, Australia. According to Air Aroma, the scent
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
with overtones of Mike Daisey’s severed fingers.
At the moment, the scent is just for the exhibition, but hopefully it will be such a hit that they’ll market it as a unisex fragrance. Perfect for if, when your partner is unwrapping you, you want them to be overwhelmed with a sense of “I can’t believe they changed the port again. Now I have to go out and buy a whole new adapter.”
