We all have certain smells that affect us in different ways. If I say, “I loved the smell of magic markers and glue as a kid”, you could probably relate. It doesn’t have to be the smell of roses or freshly baked cookies for us to understand olfactory connections.
An application that enables you to send smells through iPhones could be a way to strengthen the bonds of communication. That is what Chaku Perfume Co. Ltd. believes, and is why they developed a new communication service in the way of an iPhone application and device called “Chat Perf,” which can send smells across cyber space. Amazing!
