"A visual example of Bradbury's "odorophonic" can be seen in Dame Marjorie Chardin's "odorifics" in Hal Ashby's 1971 film "Harold and Maude." As described by Maude, "Give the nose a treat, I thought. Have a kind of olfactory banquet! So I began first on the easiest--roast beef, old books, mown grass, then I went on to these--'An Evening at Maxim's.' 'Mexican Farmyard.' Here's one you'd like. 'Snowfall on 42nd Street.'""

"Seems to me I've seen an ad somewhere for a gadget Glade is selling, where you can "play" a disk of five different scents. Each scent lasts for about a half hour. This is intended as an air freshener, so don't look for "hot-lion" scent to accentuate your favorite savannah movie. "
