Easy to swallow: New perfume is skin deep

17.08.2011 Perfume : Swallowable : Digestible

Australia – Body architect Lucy McRae and Harvard biologist Sheref Mansy have unveiled the world’s first digestible scent capsule, a swallowable perfume that is said to reflect who we are.

The Swallowable Parfum capsule is absorbed into the body and then released during perspiration as tiny, golden droplets onto the skin. The fragrance is determined by the wearer’s genetics such as his or her temperature, stress level, exercise and state of sexual arousal, making each scent genetically unique.
