Could Play-Doh scented perfume be hitting the market soon? Maybe. Toy company Hasbro says it has officially trademarked the smell of Play-Doh. The toy dough with the distinctive smell has been around since 1956. But, this is the first time its smell has been officially recognized by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. Trademark documents describe the smell as a "sweet, slightly musky, vanilla-like fragrance, with slight overtones of cherry, and the natural smell of a salted, wheat-based dough." A Hasbro spokesman says the scent of Play-Doh has always been synonymous with childhood and fun. It's unclear if the company plans to license the scent for use in fragrances or air fresheners.
I'm sure there's a Pedophile Cologne joke in there somewhere...but I'M not going there...!
