Mugaritz is a restaurant in Spain, run by chef Andoni Luis Aduriz. Taking the idea from Hana Takiniku and using the Scentee attachment, the chef wants to give diners a full sensory experience even before their food has arrived.

The actual app that would be used in relation to restaurant Mugaritz comes in the shape of a balloon. Once a connection is received, the app emits a burst of fragrance, which if used in Mugaritz would depend on what dish the patron is thinking of ordering.

Smell plays such a huge part in our ordering decisions, yet we are usually left to the mercy of taking whiffs of plates as they pass by. Chef Andoni Luis Aduriz is looking to put the power back into the hands of diners.
