Rise And Shine To The Smell Of Your Sensorwake Alarm Clock With 6 Different Scents
Have you ever been coaxed awake by the delicious aroma of bacon cooking or coffee brewing? If you have, you know what a wonderful sensation it is and what a great way it is to wake up as opposed to being trumpeted out of bed by a traditional alarm clock blaring at you until you almost have a heart attack or you throw the darn thing against a wall. A company with a product called SensorWake made waves at the recent 2016 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas with their olfactory alarm clock. The revolutionary concept was a big hit at the show with people lining up to take a sniff of what it’s like to wake up and smell the coffee before they’ve even made the coffee.
The makers of the SensorWake olfactory alarm say, “There is no better way to wake up. A personalized, gradual and gentle wake up to start the day like never before!” about there product, and you have to agree. Just think about it: now every week day morning could be like waking up on a Saturday or Sunday when you’re gently nudged awake by familiar smells you enjoy. The alarms come with six different scents to choose from for your morning start. They include fresh croissant, espresso, chocolate and peppermint for aromas included in the comfort food spectrum. The only thing they’re missing at this point is bacon and toast, but that’s probably coming. They also offer seaside and lush jungle scents for capturing the smells of the great outdoors.
How it Works
The SensorWake system uses dry air diffusion with no heat, sounds or chemical reactions. The scents are produced in France and are air quality certified by REACH, CARB and IFRA. The scent capsules are not only interchangeable but 100 % recyclable and last for 30 awakenings each. They come two to a package and they’ve been paired to compliment one another. In case you’ve got a stuffed nose from a cold or you’re worried you may oversleep, there’s a backup alarm that will sound after three minutes of uninterrupted diffusion. The clock itself looks like any other alarm with the exception of the slot on top for the capsule cartridge. The whole thing looks well thought out and super convenient.
Olfactory Alarm Detractors
There are those that say they would feel cheated if they woke up to these heavenly scents and there wasn’t any instant gratification in the form of coffee or croissants waiting for them. Others say no amount of wonderful smells could wake them from a deep sleep and that they need the jarring blasts of an old school alarm to dredge them from the depths of slumber. While we have to admit the lack of croissants would be disappointing, it’s by no means a deal breaker. Not everyone responds to stimulus in the same way, and for many people smells are a better way to approach the rise and shine dilemma than sound. They liken it to the carrot and the stick method.
The company is currently accepting pre-orders for June 2016 shipments. So, what do you think? Does waking up to a pleasant smell sound like a better way to start the day to you?
