This is the weirdest audiophile accessory I’ve seen in a while.

So you want to sit down and listen to some music. But what happens if your music room stinks? Then you need the Olfactive Stéréophonique, a fragrance diffuser created just for people like you.

I quote:

In a sea of basic fragrance diffusers, a truly innovative take on the classic relaxation product is a welcome sight. That’s why the new Byredo collaboration has set the Internet abuzz. The luxury fragrance brand teamed up with Ojas, an artisanal speaker and accessories brand, to create a diffuser based on the design practices behind sound systems.

The resulting Byredo x Ojas product, dubbed Olfactive Stéréophonique, is a one-of-a-kind diffuser guaranteed to create a revolutionary scent and sound experience. While Olfactive Stéréophonique doesn’t create any sound itself, you can pick the music of your choice to pair with its heavenly fragrances.

Um, okay. And it’s only US$1,300! (Via Jeff)

    I believe the ‘smell-o-matic’ was first proposed in the early ’60s (in a Li’l Abner comic perhaps).
