I was quick to search for the smell of roses and campfires. Unfortunately, Google Nose is a joke! Happy April Fools. This clever joke was made by Google to entertain and make fools of its users. I admit, that I had to laugh when I realized how stupid I must look trying to sniff my computor screen at my desk. (luckily no one saw me).
