New paint that smells nice
(+1, -1)

When decorating it is nice to smell new paint but sometimes it can be a bit horrid. If the paint had some essetnial oils in there to make it smell really nice that would be great.

       gizmo: does your mother know about your paint sniffing problem?

       Sorry - my dad would really like a curry flavoured paint

       Well even though it might already exist it's still a nice idea. The smell could be based on the color - Yellow could smell like Lemons - Green like grass - Brown like chocolate...etc...

       I was thinking that new paint smells clean but if it made the whole house or even the room smell for a while that would be nice, my room could smell of chocolate or mint. The smell could last for quite some time if aromathery oils were used. Could create a relaxing or up-beat mood.

       Might make you really hungry while you were painting though!

       Reminds me of a rubbish joke:   

       Q: What's blue and smells like yellow paint?   

       A: Blue paint.   

       Your idea might finally kill off this "joke" once and for all. And for that a croissant.

       Baked as a paint additive - see link. WB, giz.

       But I *LIKE* the smell of fresh paint.

       This could be useful for people decorating before selling their homes. Prospective buyers are attracted by the smell of freshly-baked bread, but it can be a trial baking for every visitor. Bread paint would make it much easier. Have a freshly baked croissant for your trouble :)

       A few years ago, 20 or 25 say, Woolworth's own-brand paint in the UK had something in it to make it smell vaguely fruity - an aldehyde of some sort I think.
