    No thanks!

    The fact that favorite smells are so infrequent makes them favorites. If the frequency increases by capturing smell, it would then be less enjoyable.

    Very cool idea and probably attractive for world travelers. I went to Japan once and the city there had a unique smell that I'll probably never again experience.

  8.

    I would keep it in the toilet, and have it auto-post on Facebook. Some good content has been missed on my wall of events there, and now it will thrive with updates...

    Yeah, that could raise a bit of a stink.
