Australia Prints Eucalyptus-Scented Stamps 2011-05-11 10:05:00

Australia Is Releasing Scented Postage Stamps

Want your letters to smell like koalas? Well now they can, at least if you're using Australian postage to send your post. Starting May 17, stamps that smell like aromatic eucalyptus will be available to our Aussie friends.

The stamps aren't old-fashioned scratch and sniff, though. Instead, they're made with Scentprint varnish, which contains microcapsules of eucalyptus designed to maintain their scent as long as people don't burst the bubbles by rubbing the stamps. If your country decided to start printing scented stamps, how do you think they should smell?

Leoren, nice picks! ;-) Ha, GummiBears! Did you have those sticker collecting books, too? I LOVED anything stickers when I was little, especially the scented ones.

This appeals to my inner child hearkening to the days of scratch and sniff stickers. *hums "The Way We Were"*

I had the exact same thought...a burger smell would totally represent the U.S. Sad, but true.

American stamps would probably have to smell like burgers or hot dogs ;) But if each state had its own scent, my states (WA) would have the odor of evergreen trees!
