The homey smell of Bavaria

Europeans looking for a special gift from Germany for their family or friends can buy Countryside Air To Go!

It’s a recloseable can that smells like cows, hay, bedding and . . . er . . . “muck,” according to a translation from the original German. The English version of the website says a can might be a good gift for people who have “migrated to the city” and are missing a certain rural essence from their past life.

The online advertisement reads: “The box is recloseable. Therefore, you’re able to enjoy the original countryside air a few times.”
