What the smell?! Yes, it’s true, the Japanese firm, Scentee, have released a smartphone device designed to give your Facebook experience a whole new aroma. Each time you receive a “like”, this little app will emit a small burst of fragrance to alert you to your breathtaking popularity, and they are now looking into a similar function for Twitter and emails.

What’s the point? Absolutely no idea. But clearly it’s ridiculous enough to get people talking about it. So if you’ve long been concerned that your Facebook activity is a little two dimensional, check out the Scentee range for your perfect bouquet. Although I can’t help but feel that with a price tag of over £3 per hundred emissions, this will only appeal to those with more money than scents.
