Then click Try Google Nose! You will be taken into a Google Search result page wherein you will be given a random search result for a random SMELLY term. On the right-hand side of the results page, there's a description of the term from the so called "Google Aromabase". At the Aromabase, you have the option to TRY and SMELL the nice scent. When you click the SMELL button, a message will pop up saying "Bring your nose as close as you can to the screen and press Enter." A progress bar with a virtual smoke will appear indicating that the scent is transmitting.
