Swallowable Parfum is a capsule that enables human skin to emit a genetically unique scent about who we are and how we perform our identities. Once absorbed, the skin becomes a platform, an atomizer; a biologically enhanced second skin synthesized directly from the natural processes of the body. Amid growing rhetoric around the body as the new frontier for technological advancement, internationally celebrated body architect Lucy McRae teams up with acclaimed Harvard biologist Sheref Mansy, to create Swallowable Parfum: a digestible scent capsule that breaks entirely new ground in the science of human instinct. Fragrance molecules are excreted through the skin's surface during perspiration, leaving tiny golden droplets on the skin that emanate a unique odor. The potency of scent is determined by each individual's acclimatization to temperatures, to stress, exercise, or sexual arousal. Download Press Kit
