Virtual reality technology has come a long way in recent years, offering users a more immersive experience. But, why stop at just sight and sound? With ScentVR, users can now bring the sense of smell into the mix, enhancing their virtual reality experience.

ScentVR is a commercial product that distributes smells via 6 refillable scent modules, making virtual reality much more realistic. The product uses a proprietary algorithm that optimizes the scent experience for users, distributing smells to maximize immersion.

But, what if you don’t want to buy pre-made scents? No problem! You can easily create your own real-world scents using household ingredients. Here are some recipes to get you started:


  • 1 part vanilla extract
