Swallowable Perfume

2 Nov

That awkward moment when you buy a new perfume – which was just released – and you realize that you are old-fashioned. Spray perfume? Jeez, that is so last year!

Lucy McRay, an Amsterdam-based artist, and Sheref Mansy, a synthetic biologist, just created a swallowable perfume that emits fragrance from the skin.

Now, by steps:

  1. There’s a capsule containing synthetic fragrant lipid molecules
  2. You swallow it
  3. The molecules get metabolized by the body’s enzymes
  4. Then fragrant molecules are released through the skin
  5. Temperature, stress, exercise or sexual arousal will determine the strength of the fragrance. Your body has the power to create an unique fragrance
  6. At this moment, you took the expression “beautiful inside” to another level

Despite the announcement in August, Swallowable Parfum was not yet released; it’s still in the research phase. So you have time to “digest” all this info

I don’t know your opinion about this, but for me it’s too freaky! I’ll take a risk of being old-fashioned here! To eat perfume it’s not an option for me yet. What about you? Willing to experiment the new Swallowable Parfum?
