Sometimes, we all just need a little push to get out of bed in the morning – and we all have our own little tricks and methods of accomplishing that, whether it’s setting 4 alarm clocks, putting them in another room, or even setting a coffee pot on alarm. The latest innovation, however, is a scented Alarm clock – like the SensorWake Trio.

The SensorWake Trio’s name comes from the combination of methods it has to wake you up – 3 methods for 3 different senses: sound, sight and smell. In other words, there’s a “dynamic light,” a selection of soothing melodies that are actually pleasant to listen to, and now, the fresh, rejuvenating, welcome scent of things such as Cappuccino, Peppermint or Citrus Zest.

It works like this: you buy little scent cartridges – some of which contain only naturally-derived scents, like Jasmine – and then insert it into the top of the alarm clock. Then, you set your own custom alarm settings, when it should go off, etc, and the SensorWake will not only play a soft music in place of a blaring alarm but will also start a cool little light show and release a soothing scent into the air, waking your senses and cajoling you out of bed. The idea is that, quite frankly, the delicious smell of coffee or cookies is more pleasant to wake up to than a blaring alarm, and a lot less likely to induce that dreaded morning anxiety.

Each scent capsule lasts up to 30 days, and there’s a variety of customized settings you can take advantage of. And the fragrances use no alcohols, oils or residues, for a clean diffusion.

If you have trouble getting up in the morning, we could see this being a nice buy for your room. It also makes a great present – if your pledge on time. It starts at $59 for just the SensorWake clock.
