We bought you news of soup scented bath salts a while back, so if after taking a dip in a bowl of ramen you fancy finishing on a sweet note, why not try stepping into a room that smells like chocolate with Japan's new chocolate incense sticks.
Hailing from a historical Japanese incense maker Koukando, the Daily Meal report that the Osaka-based company will be offering their new “The Memories of Scent: Chocolate (jumble pack)” of chocolate incense sticks ready for Valentine's Day.
Designed to evoke memories through the smell of sweet milk chocolate, it may well take you back to your childhood sweet shop days, although it's probably fair to assume, the heady smell of chocolate won't be sufficient substitute for the real deal for the chocoholic in your life.
The incense sticks come on sale on February 1, priced at 850 yen (US$7.42) per box and can be bought online.
