Because there is a gadget for everything, let not the realm of scent dispensers be ignored.

Pura Scents, launching a Kickstarter campaign today, is looking to lead the pack with a smart fragrance dispenser. Think Glade plug-ins but controlled by an app on your smartphone.

Pura Scents holds two fragrance bottles, letting users customize which scents should be released at various times throughout the day. Along with a set schedule for releasing the scent, users can also time the dispenser based on geolocation, like on the commute home.

The company is looking to raise $50,000 through the pre-order campaign and get feedback from the community, with a promised ship date of Spring 2016.

Pura Scents is launching with 15 different scents, including an amber/brown sugar/coconut combo, a vanilla/espresso/cinnamon combo, and a linens/rose flavor. Each month, the company will introduce new scents and recommend those to users based on their past purchases.

The device connects via Wifi to communicate with your smartphone (the app is available on both iOS and Android) and doubles as a night light with interchangeable color LED lights that can also be scheduled.

The device will retail for $79.99 and new scent vials (which last a month each) will go for $3.99. The Kickstarter Early Bird price is $39.
