Extra sensory additions like smells and sounds for video games

Despite advances with digital scent technology, the results for scent immersion are so far either a bit clunky and expensive or they sound like a front for terrifying mind control experiments. Using scented candles or scent jars is a relatively easy way to get further into a game you like, especially if it’s a favourite, and you know what sort of environments to prepare for. Although I’d probably go with the more purpose made ones, rather than merchandise that suggests Venus smells of ‘Shimmering white musk with a hint of coconut’.
