This is a luxury gift product for someone who works with tools. And, let me tell you, I'm sure that no one has thought of this before.
Imagine that your friend or family member works with tools all day. He (or she) probably has every tool they need to do their job. But you know that they love tools,
and you want to get them something tool-related for birthday, Christmas, anniversary, etc...
Well now you can get them something really special that they will not return to the store for something better.
Available in a variety of colors.
Each time your loved one uses his channel locks, he will be presented with the delightful aroma of chocolate.
Or perhaps he uses his pliers, and smells delicious pie.
Scents can also be customized for specific tools.
Scent is very closely related to memory.
So, as an additional benefit,
He will be better able to remember where he left a tool, or which "tool" he let borrow his screwdriver.

-Weapons: make 'em sharp and rocket-launching
-Candy: When the job's done, you can eat the tool

pulling out the plumbing in the bathroom. (She
has a project going.)

She likes all the scented candles and stuff. + from
