Japanese automaker Nissan has introduced a unique new perfume for its Formula E team, aptly named 'Smell My Dust'. The delicate scent of cherry blossoms and the unmistakable aroma of tyre smoke come together in this scent that Nissan says captures the spirit of Japan and the thrill of motorsport. The scent, which a Shanghai-based perfumer developed, uses real bits of Formula E tyres to create the aroma. No one knows yet if the aroma will be popular with the general public, but it will get the attention of auto and motorsport enthusiasts. 'Smell My Dust' will have its formal debut at this weekend's Shanghai E-Prix. If Nissan does decide to make and market the fragrance, it will likely be available in limited numbers for a short time.
