    Hope this isn't a trend that will carry across the Atlantic.

    Just when I thought I'd seen everything, this happens!

    I might just pop in to a local store and try to find out what is going on. Suspect this must smell of plastic and cardboard? Yikes, marketing manager might need to get their head checked out...

    Please report back, new electronics smell so dope so it will be interesting to see if they nail that vibe but I suspects not Terrel, I suspects not.

    "the notes include cedarwood, spice and frankincense"

    So, not like the smell of unboxing a new smartphone at all then... Lol.

    Yup, thats what put me off. Nu_Be Oxygen however does have that new Mac smell in spades:

    "A cold, clean smell that reminds me of industrial packaging materials--think something along the lines of styrofoam, plastics, and adhesives, like if you bought a new printer or video game system and stuck your nose in the box right after you opened it. The plastic, rubber, traces of the glue used to seal everything, and a freshly manufactured smell all come together in Oxygen. It also reminds me of a new sneaker store--not in so much as there's any kind of leather involved--but the fresh rubber of the soles and the clean, newly installed carpet, maybe combined with a fresh coat of paint. This is what Oxygen smells like to me. It's strange, but not unpleasant."

    Ha, yeah, Frankincense always reminds me of unboxing a phone.
    Huh, expected the Rocky mountains to be a little rockier than this...
