There’s no shortage of ways to be jarred out of bed in the morning, but we like the idea of a scent waking us up rather than obnoxious noises or absurd tests. Sure, the Wake n’ Bacon alarm clock comes close to that ideal, but here’s a more versatile approach: The Osim Nioi Alarm Clock.


Designer Alfie Lake conceived this three-slot stencher for both waking you up and putting you to sleep. Put a fresh flower scent cartridge in one slot for drifting off into la-la land, and then have a second cartrifge deliver the smell of fresh bread (we say make that bacon instead) rouse you the next morning. Maybe you could add a third cartridge that smells like dog poop to punish you if you oversleep.
