Scented Clothes

Vanilla candles, carpet fresheners, air mist sprays and other home fragrance products accounted for $3.4 billion in sales last year. Now researchers are looking at ways to permanently infuse scents into textiles.The scent-infused fabrics could lead to pleasant-smelling blankets and sheets, give holiday linens a festive fragrance and make gym clothes less odoriferous.

“Some of the strongest ideas we have are in athletic clothing…but we’re going to see success in apparel and home textiles, such as towels, too,” said John Pierce, associate professor of psychology at Philadelphia University.

This sounds kinda cool but wouldn’t it be weird if your shirt smelled like vanilla, your pants smelled like cocoa butter and your socks smelled like lavender?
