Most travel guidebooks are filled with beautiful illustrations and comprehensive text to help you envision visiting a famous tourist attraction. To give travelers an entirely different experience, British travel agency VisitYork has released the Smell York guidebook that allows tourists to smell famous places in the city of York.

The Smell York is an innovative scratch-and-sniff guidebook that lets readers use their sense of smell to experience potential travel locations. The Smell York guidebook is organized by season so when readers pick up these travel guidebooks they can flip through the pages, scratch at the pictures and enjoy sniffing how the place smells.

Travelers can enjoy smelling York's farm lands, the North York Moors and even the smell of the city's haunted ghost. Whether the smells are accurate to each location is up for debate, but the Smell York guidebook is definitely one of its kind.
