A career in the automobile sector is something that almost every car lover has fantasized about at some point in their lives. Some envisioned themselves as assemblers, sales managers, or test drivers. However, we're willing to wager you've never heard of a smellmaster.
Now, introduce yourself to the person who sets Nissan's global odor standard. Ryunosuke Ino works for Nissan as a smellmaster, or a technical specialist in car interior air quality. Even though he admits that his job isn't very well known, he is still very important to your pleasant new car experience.
It's not easy being an odor expert. For example, Ryunosuke avoids foods with strong scents like garlic the day before. Ryunosuke inspects every element of the automobile while in the same position as the buyer. He concentrates on the sun visor, glovebox, and any other portion of the automobile that opens and shuts since these might absorb odors.
He claims that Nissan has set a high bar for its new car scent. If this criterion is not satisfied, he must determine the source of the smell, check the supplier's information, and analyze the materials. The material may need to be replaced in some scenarios. You would think that anyone could do Ryunosuke's work. However, Nissan has a scent recognition certification test.
