Text messaging is often read as cold and is toneless. In commemoration of the brand’s foray into China, Downy introduced: Scent by Downy.

Because scent triggers emotions and Downy Unstoppables is one of the most popular in-wash fragrance beads, the brand found a way to communicate and introduce these scents in one of the most popular forms of communications – text messaging.

Partnering with a digital scent technologist in Japan, Downy chose 100 frequently texted words. These act as keywords to trigger one of the 3 scents built into the device. Simply download the app and connect your phone with the device through Bluetooth to send a text that triggers a scent.
