MELBOURNE, Australia – Most people love the scent of fresh apples ... but what about a freshly unwrapped Apple?
Artists in Melbourne, Australia are incorporating the scent of an Apple MacBook Pro laptop into an upcoming exhibit titled "Greatest Hits," All Things Digital reported Tuesday.
According to Macworld, "The scent created with Air Aroma ... encompasses the smell of the plastic wrap covering the box, the printed ink on the cardboard, the smell of paper and plastic components within the box and, of course, the aluminum laptop which has come straight from the factory in China."
Scent company Air Aroma said in a post on its blog this week that "samples of fragrances with the aroma of glue, plastic, rubber and paper" were obtained from its French supplier to use in the MacBook fragrance.
"The fragrance will be diffused with the Air Aroma Aroslim diffuser for the duration of [our client's] artistic exhibition in Melbourne," but will not be available commercially as it was only created for the exhibition, Air Aroma said.
The exhibition will run from April 20 to May 12.
