No wonder Bhutan, the first country to issue scented stamps 44 years ago, chose rose perfumed ones. India's first such offering was four varieties of jasmine, followed by sandalwood, both of which were apt. Switzerland's chocolate stamp was a no-brainer but it sadly did not offer a taste component. Neither did China's sweet-and-sour pork stamp. As Brazil already debuted a coffee scented stamp in 2001, India's version of the roasted bean stamp — launched last weekend — should have offered this technological advancement.
