  • Sometimes it's better to keep the mystery unexplained.

"Scratch-and-sniff" jeans may not seem the most obvious clothing item but that has not stopped designer Brandon Svarc from creating some.

The mint-scented jeans are currently being shipped to around 30 countries, including the UK.

Not scratch and sniff jeans! That reminds me too much of what the homeless guy that hangs by the 7-11 is always doing. :o

I am aware there are various animal species which, due to scent glands located in the region, sniff the crotch/anal areas of other members of their species - for various reasons.

I was not aware human beings were counted among those species.

The obvious question as to the invention of 'scratch-and-sniff jeans' is, why?

Do you want to look like some dog sniffing the butt or crotch of another dog?

Pft, my boys invented these years ago.  Now, the sniffing bit was horrible....

Just because it is a mystery to YOU doesn't make it unexplained.

That´s funny. In the 80s I watched the movie Polyester by John Waters. With the ticket came a so called ODORAMA smell card. That was a card board with 10 numbered dots those containing flavors. During the movie numbers were displayed in the movie and that number must be grinded on the card the same time. As this was a John Waters movie, not all of the 10 flavors were pleasant.

Scratch n SNiff gives you a sample of what the entire product smells like doesn't it?

We should all pitch in buy a pair for 'the man who hasn't bathed for 60 years'.
I'm sure he could use a nice minty smell.
