Japan launches 'smell map' website

Share

smell.jpgYou’ve got to love the Japanese. They’ve created a website which maps smells across the globe. Two hundred so-called ‘smellists’ have joined the “Nioi-bu”, or Smell Club, and registered scents on a Google map.

The scents listed range from “a toasty odour of cow dung” to “used socks in the summer”. It’s unclear whether any of the smells are actually pleasant. If you speak Japanese, then go check it out and let us know in the comments.
