Wake Up to the Smell of a Hot Croissant or Cut Grass with This Olfactory Alarm Clock

Caffeine fiends were pretty excited when we featured the Bariseur, a hybrid coffee brewer-alarm clock that wakes you up with a fresh cup of Joe. But what if you’re not a coffee drinker or if some mornings you’d prefer to rise with the aroma of the seaside rather than espresso? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered.

SensorWake is a scent-based alarm clock that wakes you up with the aroma of chocolate instead of the sound of a blaring horn. It uses interchangeable scent cartridges that include the aforementioned seaside and chocolate, coffee, of course, hot croissants, peaches, rose, peppermint, and, curiously, dollars, among others. Each cartridge is good for about 60 wake-up calls, and the company claims it will have your eyes open in two minutes. If you’re still snoozing in three minutes, a traditional sound-based alarm will go off.

Not only do the cartridges come in a wide array of yummy scents, but they’re recyclable and the scents are made with all natural ingredients. To further enhance the olfactory experience, two-capsule packs are available. For example, chocolate and espresso yields “continental breakfast,” and stimulating ginger and invigorating peppermint create the “vitalization aromatherapy” pack.

SensorWake is the creation of Guillaume Rolland, an 18-year-old French entrepreneur. It’s currently being funded on Kickstarter, but has already far exceeded its goal of $54,751, raising $112,846 with 28 days left to go. The retail price will be around $119 for the alarm clock and two capsules, with additional capsules coming in at $9 each.
