There's at least one company that would be interested on a completely
serious basis: digiscents (no affiliation). Check out
http:www.digiscents.com...   

DigiScents, an interactive media company, is pioneering a new industry and
art form through the digitization and broadcast of smell. DigiScents'
technology will enable consumers to enjoy more lifelike and memorable
experiences with scented web sites, e-mail, movies, music, e-commerce,
interactive games, and online advertising. 

I personally can't figure out whether to take this seriously or not, but the
CEO was a co-founder of Pangea and the management team listed on the site
looks pretty interesting. 

FWIW,
Mike
