Japanese moviegoers will get to smell Colin Farrell when his movie, The New World, opens next month.
A floral scent accompanies a love scene, while a mix of peppermint and rosemary is emitted during a tear-jerking scene.

Joy is a citrus mix of orange and grapefruit, while anger is enhanced by a herb-like concoction with a hint of eucalyptus and tea tree.

The smells waft from special machines under the seats in the back rows of two movie theaters, which create different fragrances by controlling the mix of oils stored in the machines, company spokeswoman Akiko Suzaki said Wednesday.

In "The New World," which opened in the United States in December, Farrell plays American colonial leader John Smith, who is said to have been saved from execution by North American Indian princess Pocahontas.
I picture colonial New England Viginia, not to mention Colin Farrell, smelling slightly gamier.
