Turn your Apple iPhone into an air freshener with Scentee, now available in America
Want to make sure that the world around you smells like strawberry, rosemary or even coffee? Scentee is an odd little accessory for your Apple iPhone or (just one) Android device that plugs into the earphone jack on the phone. Using a third party app, you can have the Scentee spray out a pleasant smelling aroma based on timed intervals, an alarm clock setting, or whenever you feel like a spray is necessary.

The Scentee costs $35 and can be filled with different fragrances. Each one costs $5 and is good for about 100 sprays. You can choose from coffee, lavender, rose, rosemary and strawberry. The Scentee starter kit includes one scent cartridge, a manual, USB charger and a mount. The accessory has been around previously in Japan, and is now being offered to America via online sales. The app has been on iTunes since November, but has not been available in markets outside of that country.

The Scentee works for the Apple iPhone 4s, Apple iPhone 5, Apple iPhone 5s and the Apple iPhone 5c. It also works on the Apple iPad 2 and the third-generation Apple iPad. There is one Android handset that supports the aroma sprayer, the Samsung Galaxy SC-04E, which can be found only in Japan.

You can click on the rather long and convoluted video below to see the Scentee in action, or click on the sourcelink to view the accessory's web site.

People have officially ran out of ideas. I think I've lost brain cells reading this.

Maybe just maybe we're either A. Drunk, B. Dead asleep and haven't awaken, or C. PA jumped the gun and started April 1st celebrations/hoaxes already.

No way in hell, hades, or Utah would I caught dead with this mess in my phone. Puuuuulease, only thing going in my headphone jack is headphone plug, and my LG tone plus takes away the need to plug in.
