Crack a window!

Lately, consumers are being sold a stinky bill of goods that says everything is better if it has its own special scent. We think not. Take a whiff of some of the most pointless products ever infused with fragrance...

This Reeks: 10 Products that REALLY Stink

Scented Tires

It's common knowledge that lavender has aromatherapeutic qualities that promote calm. So it's only logical that someone would develop lavender-scented car tires, right?That way, if you're stressed-out during your commute, you can stop the car and relax by inhaling the delightful scent of your ... rubber wheels.

The tires (manufactured by Kumho) are infused with heat-resistant oils. According to the product info, they're designed for "trendsetting, fashion-conscious drivers who enjoy products that will set their [cars] apart from everyone else's." Or, to put it more simply: These tires are for d-bags.

Kool-Aid-Scented Reebok Sneakers

Who was the genius who decided to team up sneakers and artificially flavored drink mix? We'll probably never know who spearheaded the Reebok and Kool-Aid alliance, but we can hazard a guess that it was someone who obviously drank the Kool-Aid BIG TIME.

Available in grape, cherry or strawberry ... with essence of ripe feet. Yum!

Scented Disposable Razors

How many times have you shaved your legs (or face), then taken a deep whiff of your razor and realized to your disappointment, "Damn! This thing doesn't smell like anything!" Well, the makers of Bic disposable razors are here to help with their line of lavender, lime and berry-scented razors. Problem solved.

Scented Laptops

Do us a favor: If you're reading this on a laptop, lean down and take a big strong whiff. What do you smell? Sweaty fingerprints? Stale food that's fallen between the keyboard keys? Well, those lucky enough to have an Asus F6V New Fragrance Notebook can breathe in a scent such as "floral blossom," "musky black," "morning dew" or -- if you MUST have a laptop that smells like sushi -- "aqua ocean."

Cigar-Scented Watch

What time is it? It's time to hold your nose! This timepiece is scented with the pungent odor of cigars. Don't know if there's an illegal Cuban edition, but there should be.

Scented Wallpaper

This is straight out of "Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory." Cool idea, but do you really want your guests to put their hands (and noses) all over your walls?This scented wallcovering comes in banana, cherry and tutti-frutti scents. (Sorry, no snozzberry.)

Bacon-Scented Bubbles

Dogs love playing with soap bubbles. Dogs love meat. Here's what happens when you combine the two: Bubble Buddy Dog-Licious Bubbles, which are scented with an essence of "sizzlin' bacon." A yummy and fun way to keep your dog's intestines squeaky clean ...?

Gum-Scented Platform Shoes

Gum is for chewing, not for wearing. But if you step in gum with these pumps, no one would be the wiser. That's because these racy Vivienne Westwood platforms smell just like bubblegum! Why you ask? Nobody knows. Or everybody's just too afraid to ask Vivienne.

Scented Baby Toy

As parents, we do try to keep our kids from shoving everything they can get their hands on into their mouths. That's why the description of Cotoons Wabap Scented Soft Toys (by Smoby) is a tad confusing: "Encourages the discovery of taste, so if the child was to bite on the toy in that area, they would experience the sensation of taste, in a safe and fun manner," it says.

Next up: chocolate-scented thumbtacks!

Scented Socks

Stinky feet are an epidemic. One of the most popular ways to combat rancid-smelling tootsies is a little soap and water. Or, you could put on a fresh pair of these scented socks, thus masking the stench. Or, again, you could just bathe. Your call.

Stumbled across this post via a brothers website, love the design - is there any chance you could email me as would like to offer some work to the designer.

Wow!, this was a top quality post. In theory I’d like to write like this too - taking time and real effort to make a good article… but what can I say… I procrastinate a lot and never seem to get something done

Generally, university students don’t like the critical essay creating, however they still have to show their writing talent! So, the admission services should be a perfect helper for research papers writing.

Hands down, Apple’s app store wins by a mile. It’s a huge selection of all sorts of apps vs a rather sad selection of a handful for Zune. Microsoft has plans, especially in the realm of games, but I’m not sure I’d want to bet on the future if this aspect is important to you. The iPod is a much better choice in that case.

Ladies generally usually are not trying to lose substantial numbers of fat typically.

Nearly all are healthful, navigate to the health club sort people. They simply have not been able to shed body fat on their stomach or reach the Plato. Stomach fat issues usually begin to take place for ladies around the time regarding or even right after child birth and later on within grow older before menopause. It seems to hit ladies while there hormonal levels tend to be changing; it’s a standard procedure for lifestyle or is it?

I’ve been surfing online more than 3 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It’s pretty worth enough for me. In my opinion, if all site owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the internet will be much more useful than ever before.

Customers’ academic satisfaction is the main purpose of the custom paper writing services. Newertheless, very often students do not think just about results and start to finish their essays by their own. Thence, they are risking damaging their grades. Think well what you do to do that correctly.

HendricksTRINA January 11, 2011, 10:18 PM

It’s not so easy to bring a pretty good custom essay, essentially if you are booked. I advise you to set buy essays and to be devoid from distrust that your work will be done by custom writing services

If you don’t depart after what you desire, you’ll never have it. If you don’t suggest, the result is continually no. If you don’t get used to thesis writing service , you’re always in the constant place.

Good luck getting individuals behind this one. Though you make some VERY fascinating factors, youre going to should do more than convey up a couple of things might completely different than what weve already heard. What try to say here? What do you need us to think? It looks like you cant actually get behind a singular thought. Anyway, thats simply my opinion.
