A fragrance in capsule form? What will they think of next?!?
A “Perfume Pill” which eliminates the need to spritz on a scent is the latest beauty buzz on the blogosphere. The brand Swallowable Parfum – headed up by the Australian artist and self-described “body architect” Lucy McRae – is the brains behind the perfume pill product.
“Swallowable Parfum is a cosmetic capsule that enables human skin to emit a genetically unique scent…Fragrance molecules are excreted through the skin’s surface during perspiration, leaving tiny droplets on the skin that emanate a unique odour. The potency of scent is determined by each individual’s acclimatisation to temperature, stress, exercise or sexual arousal.”
The capsule “consists of synthesised fragrant lipid molecules that mimic the structure of normal fat molecules naturally found in the body…Subsequently, the liberated fragrant molecules are excreted through the skin’s surface during perspiration.”
McRae and synthetic biologist Sheref Mansy are currently in the research phase to develop this capsule, so it’s not quite ready to be packaged up as Christmas gift!
