The USB Flower scents your office and runs off your computer

42 usb flower 2.jpgWe’re always up for weird USB gadgets, and this one is pretty out there. Not only is it a kooky shape – a flower, it also releases aromatherapy scents that waft gently from the head of the plastic flower and fill the immediate vicinity of your USB port with soothing odours.

I suppose it does the same job as a scented candle, but try pulling one of those out in the office – you’d either get health and safety onto you or everyone would think you were trying to turn your desk into some hippy romantic boudoir – or both. :O
Invented by an American entrepreneur called Fredrik Perman, a man who clearly wants to bring nice smells to offices all over the country, the USB Scent Flowers have just been launched in the USA.

One downside I suppose is that the scent flower uses what you might call proprietary scent sachets. The Scent Flower comes with 3 refills each lasting approximately a month, giving you 3 months of fragrance before you will need to purchase more. But I suppose given that the whole thing costs 10 dollars or £6.15 that’s not too bad.

Also I haven’t had a err ‘hands-on’ with this so I don’t know what the scent actually smells like. However I do know it comes in four different scents: Ocean Breeze, Purple Lavendar, Pink Jasmine and White Chamomile.

Costs $9.99 – not including postage, from USBflower
