A Bottle of New Car Scent

One of the new cool things I picked up from the Brand Sense book I finally got to read is the story about how auto manufacturers spray new cars with that famous new car smell that works as an olfactory signature of sorts. Apparently, you can buy the stuff by the bottle, too, although it's not brand-specific. A few related links:
