We propose a setup for an odor communication system. Its different parts are described, and ways to realize them are outlined. Our scheme enables an output device -- the whiffer -- to release an imitation of an odorant read in by an input device -- the sniffer -- upon command. The heart of the system is the novel algorithmic scheme that makes the scheme feasible. We are currently at work researching and developing some of the components that constitute the algorithm, and we hope that the description of the overall scheme in this paper will help to get other groups to join in this effort.
