Company Creates Socks That Smell Like Las Vegas

It’s an idea so crazy, it just might work. A company out of Bulgaria, Stinky Socks, has created a line of scented socks intended to remind people of their favorite places, including Las Vegas.

The socks are touted as carrying the scent of “the beach, the mountains and the heart of the city.”

The “city” in question? Las Vegas, of course.

The aromatic socks cost $14.95. Ours were $24.95 with shipping included. Of course, we ordered some! Do you know this Las Vegas blog at all?

Given the wide, wide variety of smells in Las Vegas, we’re curious to experience these socks first-hand. First nostril? Whatever works.

Vegas fans have long had an appetite for the smells of their beloved casinos. Companies have churned out Vegas-scented candles and aroma machines paying homage to our favorite places to stay and play. Sans the cigarette and cigar smoke, typically.
