If There Was A Scratch And Sniff Map Of America, People Imagine What Their State Would Smell Like

We've seen those candles that smell like states--the perfect gift for transplants who are often homesick.

But what if we could just as easily hang up a map and scratch-n-sniff new places along with our sentimental ones?

There's More State Than Just There

It usually smells pretty good, but for some reason people keep scratching near Newark and Camden, and those parts of the map smell like poop, so everyone thinks it smells awful.

Short of having a shopping addiction, no one actually likes spending money on stuff.

Why would you ever willingly give it away? It's your money!
