Fart in a Spacesuit?

In Space no-one can hear you Fart.

If you fart in a spacesuit, where does it go? Nowhere, it just lingers. Trapped in the suit. Bummer. Not good given that in a few years most humble couch potatoes will be up there at some point. Now, if your suit had a heat activated sensor (or a movement activated one connected directly to your sphincter) any motion would trigger the release of a fragrance of the astronaut's choice. Lavender, Sandalwood and so on, thus countering the whiff and ensuring a pleasurable time. As an added bonus, the sensor could record the emission and play it back to fellow Space Tourists during times of boredom. : D

"No, what, Phillip?"

       The spacesuits do have atmospheric cleansers, so this is rather pointless.

       That's going to be nothing compared to the prevalent smell of really stale air that exists on all space-stations. That, together with the constant feeling of falling and the effects on your stomach means that flatulent smells will be one of the last things on your mind.

The glorious expanse of the universe will smell like feet.
