The new phone fragrance

At Carphone Warehouse, we appreciate the excitement of getting a brand new smartphone. The unbroken plastic seal, the peeling away of the static screen protector, the perfectly wrapped, pristine earphones...

We get it so much that we decided to bottle that excitement as a scent. With a little help from Design in Scent’s aromachologists, we’ve managed to immortalise that new phone feeling as an uplifting room spray, so you can experience the excitement again and again.

The scent of Unboxed

Your sense of smell is most closely linked to recollection. And Unboxed is principally designed to reawaken every memory you have of prising open a brand new phone.

Unboxed is built on a culmination of scents to evoke that new phone feeling. It begins with sharp, stirring top notes of cedar, which rest on the strength of distinguished frankincense and spice. The breadth of the fragrance is then finished off with looming bass notes, delivering a visceral aroma of dry smoked wood.

Gemma Hopkins, founder of Design in Scent, commented: "Capturing the complexity of that new phone feeling was a very exciting brief. We played with a range of curious ingredients to get that perfect blend of phone materials, refined packaging, metallic electricity and luxurious exclusivity. We hope it evokes excitement for all who have the opportunity to smell it."

Unboxed atomisers will be given away to the first customers that buy a new phone on 3 October at participating stores - including London’s Oxford Street and Manchester’s Trafford Centre.
