USB Scent Flowers Are Doing It Wrong

usbflower

By Evan Ackerman

If you’re selling a borderline useless USB accessory, you have to keep in mind who your market is. Do you really think that people who spend so much time in front of their computer that they need a peripheral to make it smell better are going to be attracted by scents like Ocean Breeze, Purple Lavender, Pink Jasmine, or White Chamomile? Of course not. Those are outside smells. Instead, you should try scents like Vanilla, Chocolate Chip Cookies, or Bacon. Or you could try even more familiar scents for the hardcore gamer, like Cheetos, Mountain Dew, and Shame.

In the mean time, though, you’ll have to content yourself with the aforementioned flowery smells. $9.99 gets you a USB Scent Flower plus three refill cartridges that should last you a couple months.

    Eww. That's not worth the buy. When they come out with something that smells like potato chips, then I'd buy it.

    Evan,

    I couldn't even get past the appearance to even contemplate the scents. These USB flowers would not exactly be the choice of men playing Halo.

    @Richie1742 This complements your “Ocean Lavender” button up.

    I'll take a bacon and mountain dew scented one. Though I do agree they look bad.
