Play-Doh certainly has a distinct smell one I am not very fond of. With that being said, Play-Doh recently applied for a trademark for that signature scent and the description is on point. Here’s how they described it!

Play-Doh Is Trademarking Their Scent, Here’s How They Described It

Teen Vogue found the original trademark filing on the USPTO website and the description is GOLD.

The scent from our childhood is described as:

“unique scent formed through the combination of a sweet, slightly musky, vanilla-like fragrance, with slight overtones of cherry, and the natural smell of a salted, wheat-based dough.”

I don’t remember smelling any vanilla or cherry scent but again, I haven’t ever been a fan of the smell so maybe I wasn’t smelling it enough or right?

Nonetheless, it is an interesting way to describe the compound and to be quite honest, I had no idea that scents could be trademarked. So, I totally learned something new today.

Now, I can’t help but want to smell a fresh container of Play-Doh to see if I can capture the hints of vanilla and cherry… Anyone else want to take a whiff? If so, you can grab your own Play-Doh variety pack here.
