The Scent of Jewelry

A wireless web of scent can be scent from one "wearer" to another

Jewelry isn’t just eye candy anymore… It can now be a treat for your nose (well-being and social life) too!

I heard about this crazy new technology called “Scentsory Design” from my friend, Meagan, after we saw “Inception” with a group of friends. Along the same futuristic line, Jenny Tillotson has created a jewelry line that sends scent by a wireless web from, say, a spider brooch to another piece of jewelry- like a beetle brooch.

It can spray a sample of fragrance to send an aroma ‘message’ that could be healing (lavender), protective (insect repellent), seductive (pheromones) informative or communicative. The user of the piece could whisper a message into the spider brooch, then transmitting the message to a beetle brooch worn by an admirer.

The spider’s sensor, implanted in its abdomen records the humidity of her breath and releases scent from the beetle onto a localized area, creating a personal ‘scent bubble’. (Granted, it seems like it would be a lot easier and more realistic to say, “Hey! I like you!” rather than whispering to your brooch … but maybe not as much fun!)

Though it may sound a little futuristic, I think the concept of using scent for heightening everyday experiences like watching TV, talking on cellphones and now for fashion, could be right around the corner. … what do you think?

This beetle brooch can communicate by scent...

    What does a metal beetle smell like anyway?

    I bet He-Man and Skeletor could battle it out with some of thsoe giant wireless bugs strapped to their utility arm bands that are chock full o' random devices that don't do much of anything. I'd send scents of 'old wet shoe' and '3 day old sweaty clothes in my gear bag' to all of my friends. Good times!

    Hey, I like seeing the catwalk video. I think these sound like a lot of fun, kind of the way kid spy kits are fun. Much more exciting than text messaging. :)

    Don't know if I am too fond of the critters crawling up my neck.
    Polymer clay artists have been including scent (oils and ground petals) in their beads for some time now.
    I seem to remember little patchouli pots I wore around my neck in the 60s (hmmm, must have done that before I was born …grin…)

    Love the idea of scent with jewelry. And the spider design with web is absolutely fabulous, with or without scent. It may inspire me to work on a spider of my own….
