Responsive electronic jewellery presented in a workshop as part of the Science Festival.
Scentsory Design® is a collection of responsive clothing that adds more sensations into the fashion palette in ways that create radical new properties with real benefit. By choosing scent as a tool to enhance the quality and beauty of life, and improve mental and physical wellbeing, the wearer acts on visual cues or detects scent signals, allowing immediate information.
We are entering a new age of perfumery that will have a radical impact on mental health. Scent has the power to evoke emotions because the olfactory sense impacts directly with the limbic system (our emotional centre). Olfactory substances have the power to change electrical brain activity to increase an individual’s ‘wellbeing’ The aim is to produce an intimate ‘scent bubble’ that ‘pulses’ benefit chemicals in controlled ways responding to personal needs. This allows for efficient scent delivery that is targeted to specific parts of the body. The users confidence in their visual identity is thus enhanced by sensory, psychological and medical wellbeing.
