A drop of scented oil behind the ear, a spritz of perfume on the wrist. Tisk, tisk, applying perfume the old way? Lucy McRae an Amsterdam-based artist and synthetic biologist Sheref Mansy create Swallowable Parfum. A capsule containing synthetic fragrant lipid molecules is swallowed as it breaks down in the body it excretes fragrant molecules through your perspiration. The skin basically becomes an atomizer allowing the scent to emanate from within if you have ever eaten too many onions and smelled it coming out of your pours. You get the picture. The body customizes the scent based on the individual’s acclimatization to temperature, stress, exercise or sexual arousal. Swallowable Parfum will give you a good BO however the after taste may leave something to be desired. This Off The Grid find is still in the research stage.
“Swallowable Parfum is a cosmetic capsule that enables human skin to emit a genetically unique scent about who we are and how we perform our identities. Once absorbed the skin becomes a platform, an atomizer; A biologically enhanced second skin synthesized directly from the natural processes of the body, redefining the role of skin.”-source lucymcrae.net
