Project overview

Swallowable Parfum is an artistic provocation developed alongside synthetic biologist Sharef Mansy, that provokes entirely new ground in the science of human instinct. This cosmetic capsule works from the inside out; fragrance molecules are excreted through the skin’s surface during perspiration, leaving droplets on the skin that emanate a unique odor. Once absorbed, the capsule enables the skin to become a platform, an atomizer, a biologically enhanced second skin synthesized directly from the natural processes of the body. The potency of scent is determined by each individual’s acclimatization to temperatures; to stress, exercise or sexual arousal.
