JOY is the smell of leather?

File this one under interesting BMW marketing. BMW financial in Canada has produced a pamphlet that gives the scent of new car leather. You know that smell that is intoxicating, the one I wish my car would have for the rest of her days. BMW Canada will be distributing these advertising pamplets at Autoshows around the country in 2010.

I think that's taking the whole "joy" campaign a bit too far..

just as a thought, there was a fragrance for dogs, launched at Saks Fifth Avenue NYC, it was named "Oh My Dog!"....so with that in mind, the "new car scent" should be called "Oh My Ride"? Any other funny thoughts on that?

Joy would be to see a HPFP for the N54 engine, guaranteed to outlast the faked leather scent in longevity.

You can buy a scent for that, but keeping the interior clean and food-free seems to work. People are always telling me my cars smell brand new.

I remember a tire ad in a magazine with a scented pull out, with the smell of burnt rubber. It smelled like the real deal.

of course the new car smell is slightly toxic, but lets just forget about that.
