A new capsule called Swallowable Parfum promises to deliver perfume directly into the body, turning the skin into an “atomizer”.
Swallowable Parfum, which is currently in its development phase, is said to work with the natural processes of metabolism, releasing fragrant molecules through the skin’s surface during perspiration.
The pill creator, a Netherlands-based Australian artist Lucy McCrae claims that Swallowable Parfum can turn perspiration into a fragrance and because we are all genetically unique, our scented sweat will take on an individual characteristic, too.
Lucy McRae is an internationally appraised body-architect, inventor and ballerina who has always focused her work on powerful, primal transformations of the human body with surprising, innovative and grotesque results.
Swallowable Parfum is a bio-genetic discovery that comes in a capsule and makes your sweat fragrant. The more you sweat, the more scented you’ll be while you’ll be perspiring a genetically unique fragrance.
Lucy McCrae writes on her site: “Swallowable Parfum is a digestible scented capsule that emits a unique odor through your own perspiration.”
Lucy McCrae is teaming up with synthetic biologist Sheref Mansy and they hope the pill will create a “biologically enhanced second skin synthesized directly from the natural processes of the body”.
Swallowable Parfum is a potential solution to odour issues or simply for those who are too lazy to squirt a spritz of perfume each morning.
Swallowable Parfum pill comes on the heels of a new “perfume candy” that mimicks the staying power of garlic, replacing its antisocial breath odour with something altogether more attractive.
Meanwhile, research is underway for a pill that will provide SPF, negating the need for suncream, and tablets to counteract grey hair are slated to be launched by L’Oreal in 2015.
Swallowable Parfum tablets are still very much on the drawing board, with no product launch date yet planned.
