CES2016: SensorWake alarm clock (you'll need to lobby for bacon)

Would you pay $109 for this alarm clock?  

If you do, you'll also have to cough up for a 2-pack of the swappable capsules @ $10.90.  Each capsule is good for 30 happy wake-ups.

The best and weirdest of CES 2016.  (Hindustan Times, 1/23/2016)
Don’t like alarms jarring you from your sleep? How about waking up to the scents of the ocean, a lush jungle, a freshly baked croissant, a hot coffee or peppermint? This clock can release those fragrances and aromas just around the time you want to wake up. And if that doesn’t work, it will still sound a shrill alarm three minutes later. Amazing or weird, you decide!

Among the available scents (produced in France, no less):
  • croissant
  • espresso
  • seaside
  • lush jungle
  • chocolate 
  • peppermint

But not, apparently this one:
The Sensorwake smell-based alarm clock has a nagging bacon deficit.  (TechHive,1/5/2016)
