Smellr -- April Fool's Day, 2009
The website smellr debuted, describing itself as "like Flickr, but for your nose":
Your smell. Deeply personal yet very social, it says so much about you. And now there's a social network for your nose, a friendspace for your fragrance, a place to share your opinions on perfumes and vote for your favorite smells. We call it smellr and it's online now.
