(WXYZ) - A new accessory for smartphones will surely tickle your nose hairs.
A Japanese company has created Scentee--a device for your smartphone that you can program to emit a scent each time you get a text or phone call.
The olfactory device plugs into your headphone jack and adds the dimension of scent to your communications.
The Scentee works in conjunction with a selection of apps that lets you decide when the scent will be released, whether it's each time you're getting an email, or a text message or maybe each time your alarm wakes you up in the morning.
The device has many fragrance cartridges to choose from-so, for instance, when your phone alarm buzzes in the morning, the smell of fresh coffee could also be released into the air.
