Global Economic Crisis got you down? Well don't you worry--the designers at Maybach have just the thing to cheer you up. Their Mayback Zeppelin, which offers "lambskin carpets and engraved silver Champagne flutes," also offers the perfume atomizer pictured above.
The heart of this scent dispenser is an illuminated Plexiglas globe set on the rear console, suggesting a fortune teller's crystal ball. Its pump is controlled by a thumbwheel in the rear compartment; in models without a partition between the seats, there is also a button near the steering wheel. The device shuts off automatically after 10 minutes or so.
It comes with three glass perfume vials; two fragrances created by Givaudan of Switzerland are supplied as part of the atomizer option. (Givaudan claims to have created the first designer fragrance, Shocking, for Elsa Schiaparelli in 1937.)
Owners are not restricted to the Maybach-provided perfumes--they can refill the hand-blown receptacles with their own scents.
Best of all, the device only adds $5,000 to the base price! What a steal!
