A new fragrance has been formulated that simulates getting a new MBP:

Want to Smell Like a MacBook? There’s a Perfume for That – Fashionista: Fashion Industry News, Designers, Runway Shows, Style Advice

It evokes that heady smell of opening the wonderful Apple packaging, the aroma of a newly unpacked MBP!

So, anytime you're tempted by a brand spanking new advertising campaign for a newly redesigned MBP, you should instead spray this fragrance around your old MBP, which should theoretically assuage your primal, hinterbrain desire for a new MBP.

VoilĂ , all's well!

(In reality, this concept smells more like a fragrant pile of something...but it does give up something to talk about...)

Don't spray too much around your old MBP, or you're going to need to buy a new MBP.

Well, the stuff's not available at all.

But isn't it astonishing how much publicity they got out of it?

It is an excellent send-up of how so many people rave about un-boxing new Apple stuff.

They do have a "new car smell" air freshener you can put in your old car... it's not quite the same though.
