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
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.
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."
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.
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.)
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!
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.
