Eau de Temps

“I love the smell of Napalm in the morning…” – Robert Duvall (Apocalypse Now). Though I question anyone’s sanity that might actually mean those very words, it does speak of the fundamental truth that a particular scent has the power to instantly transform our moods. Whether it is the smell of your grandmother’s home, a gardenia, a puppies breath, some vanilla or even napalm in the morning, scents can instantly transport us to a time, a place, and moreover, an emotion. This power was the motivation behind the “Aroma Waker” by Abio Genesis. By incorporating an aroma diffuser into a standard alarm clock, Abio has given you the power to time your mood swings as easily as setting your clock. Maybe you like the smell of fresh cut grass at noon, or bubble gum at 5 PM, or even the scent of a woman at bedtime, your nose knows and your mind will certainly follow.
