Want to get stinking rich? How about a 'money' perfume?
by Moon Yebin

A Japanese study showed that the smell of money could significantly increase workers' productivity -- inspiring his n' hers scents to help bring the dollars rolling in.

"I really feel that people who wear these will feel more confident," creator McCarthy Patrick, also vice president of sales at Microsoft, told AOL News.

The official website describes His Money Cologne as having "the woody aroma of newly printed money" offering "a bold fusion of fresh ocean breezes and bright citrus notes are joined by rosemary, grass, and precious woods."

For the ladies, Her Money Eau de Parfum "begins with the clean scent of freshly minted bills. Vibrant pink grapefruit and mandarin pick up the theme, joined by freesia, passion fruit, Hawaiian wedding flower, and a soft hint of melon."

McCarthy added: "I'd like to think that people will use it as part of our economic recovery. I got an order from a serviceman in Afghanistan and sent him a bunch of extra bottles."

Both of the cash-scented fragrances sell for around $35 online.
