The item is a solid scent gel used in conjunction with a scenting device referred to as a ScentCube. The ScentGel is inserted into the ScentCube which dispenses a controlled amount of fragrance into the air. The ScentGel is a preparation designed to fragrance a room.

The applicable subheading for the ScentGel will be 3307.49.0000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for Preparations for perfuming or deodorizing rooms, including odoriferous preparations used during religious rites: Other. The rate of duty will be 6 percent ad valorem.
