According to SoraNews24, these scents were not produced without proper research. To match the right aromas, the company asked several pet owners to describe what their pets’ bellies smelled like.
For cat owners, their descriptions include “burnt caramel popcorn”, “freshly made pancakes covered in maple syrup”, and “burnt milk”. Dog owners they likened dogs’ bellies to “broad beans and grass growing the in sun” and “slightly overdone toast”.
These scents were eventually fine tuned and the final fragrances is said to be akin to a “mix of pancakes and burnt butter” for cats and “roasted beans” for dogs.
