fragrant paint

Paint that has a pleasant smell

A photosensitive paint that gives off a fragrance when exposed to light. Instead of the less than pleasant smell of a freshly painted room, rooms could be made to smell of pine, a summer meadow or the sea, etc. Perhaps best applied to bathrooms, where it can do away with the need for 'freshener' sprays. As the paint is exposed to light, it fades gradually as it gives off the fragrance, with a new coat needed after 3-4 years.

       'Fluorstenchant'. <grin> I like it. Would paint my place all in pine...

       The paint could come in different fragrances but of the same colour. You then paint the wall with different smells and then use a scratch and sniff release system. Now you have that smell for every occasion.

       The first time I moved, my new room had sulfur-yellow paint with Linda-Blair-vomit green carpet.

       Would not want to smell _that_ room!

       Something similar to what you've proposed has come out! Of course, this is on bulbs, but that's just geography!

       I was just shipped a sample of an apple smelling pigment. Not sure if it is photosensitive though.
