Where to buy: Available at home improvement and crafts stores nationwide, Amazon.com or www.shurtechstore.com/category/duck-tape-scents.

Pro: Now your duct tape flowers can smell like something other than adhesive. This is one more step in the evolution of Duck Tape duct tape, which comes in more than 250 variations. Six solid colors – from soft bubble-gum pink to lemon yellow – smell like what their hue suggests. Other “flavors” include cupcake pink, grape purple, orange cream and mint green. These are aimed primarily at young crafters; no scratch, just sniff. This could be a cute addition to Halloween costume and decoration making, too. See ideas at Duck Tape’s Pinterest page.

Con: This is just a fun product aimed at hooking more people into crafting with tape. The fragrance is very light; it won’t mask odors or freshen drawers. Used together, the scents tend to blend. Eventually, the scent fades away (but the tape still holds firm).
