Share Article

TriSenx announces its National Essay Contest to kick off its revolutionary product launch and gives status of the company's technology since its competitor closed its doors.

TriSenx Holdings, Inc., Savannah – based technology development company, kicks off its National Essay Writing Contest spotlighting “How Smell Influences Learning”, awarding each of the winning schools: a revolutionary, patented Scent Dome™ ; cash prizes to the winning students; and two selected schools, an appearance on CNN or Good Morning America.

This is the first press release from TriSenx Holdings, Inc. since its primary competitor, Digiscents, Oakland-based computer smell start-up closed its doors, after raising more than $20 million in funding, shut down its website and laid off all 70 of its employees, in April, 2001. TriSenx Holdings, Inc., a survivor of the technology downturn in 2001, prevailed as the undisputed leader in the digital multi-sensory emerging market. “Our simple philosophy was coined by Pradeep Jotwani, Senior Vice President of Hewlett-Packard during the internet technology media-frenzy-days, ‘focus on your technology and not the media hype, because at the end of the day, he who provides the product wins.’” quotes Ellwood G. Ivey, Jr., CEO of TriSenx Holdings, Inc. of his former Board Member.

Since 2001, TriSenx has quietly, but unrelentingly, perfected its technology, complete with a Beta Test concluded fourth quarter 2003. Early in 2004, Telewest (UK) issued an international press release regarding its scented e-mail-trials with TriSenx’s beta ScentDome™, sparking some premature media attention. TriSenx continued to focus on perfecting the Scent Dome™ for its product launch beginning with this National Essay Writing Contest.

“How Smell Influences Learning” is the topic for this contest and nucleus for a year of eyebrow-raising technology and events. The delivery of Scent Domes™ to the winning schools will be a multi-sensory event with music and performances by “Detective Nosey Nose” (children’s education entertainment character); Gimini (hip hop artist) debuting his new release, “I Got My Smell On”; and Zan (alternative adult contemporary artist), debuting her new release, “Meadow Spirits”.

The essays should be received by TriSenx no later than February 11, 2005. The winners will be represented by K - 5th grades (five winners); 6th – 8th grades (five winners); 9th – 12th grades (five winners); and collegiate level (two winners), with the winning essays featured on TriSenx website: Essays will be judged on both style and content. Co-Sponsors and Judges include officials from NASA Ames, Eastman Chemicals, The Education Community, DHL and the Fragrance Industry. Contest rules and specifics can be located at
