Making scents out of photography

Want to add fragrance to your print images? Photo site Photojojo, in a technique it's calling "scent-o-graphy," shows you how.


The folks at Photojojo have come up with a rather interesting way to reminisce when viewing photos. The technique, called "scent-o-graphy," essentially adds aroma to print images.

Imagine the possibilities -- being able to preserve your memories of a visit to a lavender field in Japan, for example -- by infusing your photo paper with the sweet fragrance of lavender. One way suggested by Photojojo is to seal your print in a Ziploc bag full of cotton balls laced with your choice of essential oils for two to three weeks. The scents permeate, and voila, you get a print that smells just like lavender.

If you like this idea, head over to the Photojojo Web site for more ideas and detailed instructions. However, if scent-o-graphy starts being the next hot trend in photography, you might want to think twice before taking a picture that "stinks."
