Olfactory displays developed in the past emphasized the display of multiple fragrances using one device, and, hence, problems arose, such as huge device size, high cost, troublesome operation and complicated maintenance. Therefore, a home environment to edit and play back images and sound with fragrances has not been achieved to date. In this work, we proposed and developed the “FragrantMemories” system, which can be implemented very easily at home and is convenient to use. Users can edit FragrantMemories and play back images and sounds with fragrances.
