After being inspired by an article on scented earbuds by fellow Trend Hunter, Pearl, I thought I'd take a look back at all the neat innovations that integrate the sense of smell.
Trend Hunter has done an extensive feature on scent marketing before, but this time we're going to focus more specifically on products that are scented for therapeutic reasons as well as for personal enjoyment.
While traditionally aromatherapy relies on the use of incense, flower essence and scented oils, today technology is an increasingly powerful method of scent distribution. From aromatherapy USB keys to the Actun Aroma Pump featured in the main image, these technologies are helping us stay in tune with our oft ignored sense of smell. Below are some of the most intriguing things to tease your olfactory senses.
