There’s nothing better than the smell of summer – the scent of freshly-cut grass and the wafting aroma from a sizzling BBQ is enough to bring a smile to anyone’s face.

But for the busy lot who are unable to escape the confines of their office, these nostalgic smells can be hard to come by. That was until this novel vending machine, stocked with bottles of all the best summer fragrances, appeared.

Commuters at Slough station have been treated to the smell of their favourite holiday memories with an array of bottled summer-scented air, ranging from the breezy Mediterranean sea air to the all-too-familiar smell of sun-cream.

The bottled summers are all thanks to car hire comparison site Holiday Autos, who quizzed Brits about their favourite summer fragrances, with freshly cut grass topping the list with 69%, followed by a BBQ claimed by 40% and sun cream at 39%.
