Play-Doh certainly has a distinct smell one I am not very fond of. With that being said, Play-Doh recently applied for a trademark for that signature scent and the description is on point. Here’s how they described it!

Play-Doh Is Trademarking Their Scent, Here’s How They Described It
The scent from our childhood is described as:
“unique scent formed through the combination of a sweet, slightly musky, vanilla-like fragrance, with slight overtones of cherry, and the natural smell of a salted, wheat-based dough.”
I don’t remember smelling any vanilla or cherry scent but again, I haven’t ever been a fan of the smell so maybe I wasn’t smelling it enough or right?
Nonetheless, it is an interesting way to describe the compound and to be quite honest, I had no idea that scents could be trademarked. So, I totally learned something new today.

Now, I can’t help but want to smell a fresh container of Play-Doh to see if I can capture the hints of vanilla and cherry… Anyone else want to take a whiff? If so, you can grab your own Play-Doh variety pack here.
