A Scent can be used to give a Pokémon a Cologne Massage, which if performed on a Shadow Pokémon opens its Heart Gauge. Scents can also be used on other Pokémon, but have no effect.

The effectiveness depends on the Scent used and the Pokémon's nature, and differ between Pokémon Colosseum and XD. The values listed below for how much Scents open a Pokémon's Heart Gauge are for the Joy Scent: the Excite Scent opens a Pokémon's Heart Gauge twice as much, and the Vivid Scent three times as much.
