KFC has crafted an invention aimed at eliminating the smell of their famous fried chicken, just weeks after spreading it through scented bath bombs.

The fast food chain has continued to experiment with its famous 11 herbs and spices by trying to reduce the odour they emit for commuters on the subway in Japan.

Public transport users in the nation's capital of Tokyo can pick up the 'low-odour' chicken from a pop-up store in the Shinjuku subway station, The Independent reported.

Hungry commuters – who don't want to disturb fellow passengers with their smelly food – can buy two pieces of fried chicken from the outlet for 500 yen ($5.72).

The groundbreaking menu item has been named 'Fried Chicken Home Type', and has the same taste of regular KFC chicken despite being almost odourless, KFC claim.

The trademark aroma of KFC chicken is then released once it is popped in the microwave at home, the publication reported.

Daily Mail Australia has contacted KFC for comment.

It's not the first time that KFC in Japan has made headlines by experimenting with their product, after they released fried chicken-scented bath bombs last month.

A total of 100 fried chicken lovers were able to get their finger lickin' hands on the limited edition drumstick-shaped soap when their names were drawn in a lottery on November 15.

KFC fans have previously gone wild on social media over fried chicken-scented sunscreen, flavored lip balm and candles.

When asked last month if the scented bath bombs would come Down Under, a KFC Australia spokesperson told Daily Mail Australia: 'We are always looking for new ways to innovate our brand.

'However we currently have no plans to launch this product in Australia and are excited to see how this innovation fares in Japan.'
