… you find these kind of message on the package of your new pillow. Would they expect people to complain if they did not put this message on the package? Or have people been complaining after which they put this message on? The genius who came up with the “newness odour” description deserves a price.

Haha, I love it. Amazing that someone actually wrote that note and put it on a pillow.
This is all part of the creative industry, which blosoms in the UK:
Better to be safe than sorry.
Would you prefer a pillow without a message that smells like a used nappy when opening the package?
Customers like to be prepared and Pillows-R-Us don’t want people to complain about the new-pillow-smell on their new pillow.
I wonder: Are there new pillows that don’t smell new?
“I wonder: Are there new pillows that don’t smell new?”
See that is exactly my point :) I expect not! Which is why I found this message on my pillow quite funny!
Tell me what you want: The newness odour of new pillows is different from the newness odour of other commodities. I, for one, would have appreciated a label like this printed on MY new pillow. Only thanks to my husband’s persuasive power and his plea for patience did I not throw away my newly bought pillow right after unpacking it… ;)
I love that new pillow smell.
Maybe ther’s a simular product specially for pillows ;-)
That’s too funny! Wonder when they’ll “warn” new car owners about the new-car smell?
