Oh, Japan, what can’t you do? According to metro.co.uk, a Japanese company has created a website that tracks different odors around the world and lets you know where these smells are.
Launched in December, the ‘Nioi-bu,’ or Smell Club, has registered more than 160 scents around the world, ranging from ‘steam coming out of a rice cooker’ to ‘used socks in the summer,’ and pinpointed their locations on a Google map.
Nearly 200 members, called ‘smellists,’ have joined the Japanese-language only site, said Kayo Matsubara, spokeswoman
Some of what they report: ‘A toasty odor of cow dung’ in Fujisawa City, just southwest of Tokyo. In Kamakura, eastern Japan, ‘cats with halitosis’ were suspected to be roaming about.
I’m not sure what purpose this would serve…are you supposed to get in your car and drive to the area that has a "toasty odor of cow dung" if that’s what you want to smell? We don’t have this in America yet, so we went ahead and created one anyway. Here’s what it smells like in the various parts of the USA.
