Perfume Pill

Deodorants, antiperspirants and perfumes could be relegated to the past of scented history if a new creation delivers on its promise to turn perspiration into fragrance. 


How it works? 
Created by a Netherland-based artist, the pill is to be swallowed and is said to have the power to turn skin into an atomiser working with an individual's body metabolism. So, when a person perspires, instead of an odour it delivers perfumedirectly into the body. Also, since we have our own genetic make up, which is unique, yourfragrance will also stand apart. The pill is still in its development stage. Its creator Lucy McCrae along with synthetic biologist Sheref Mansy is hoping that their creation will 'biologically enhance second skin, synthesised directly from the natural processes of the body. 

Would you swallow this pill? 
Vahbbiz Dorabajee, TV actress, says, "If there is a pill which converts sweat into perfume it would be fantastic. There will be no bad odour coming from anyone at parties, in discotheques on the dance floor and even in the gym. Everyone will smell good. The very thought of it is so uplifting. I will surely use it and definitely gift it to people who really need such a discovery." It could have serious side effects Dr Jaishree Manchanda cosmetologist and dermatologist, is sceptical about this invention. She says, "I would like to know what this pill is made of and how it works, for there is a possibility that it may have serious side effects." Ishween Anand, owner of a firm that manufactures natural and fragrant bath and body products, says, "According to me, using perfume pills to eliminate sweat and turn it into fragrance is not a natural process for a person as it is a change in the internal system of one's body. 

In today's world when people are trying to move away from chemicals, the unnecessary intake of these pills filled with chemicals is harmful for the human body. Moreover, fragrance is very mood based. We prefer using different fragrances for casual as well as formal occasions and taking this pill will result in giving us the same fragrance at all points of day which can be very boring and monotonous. However, this may prove to be useful for people who have a permanent problem of bad body odour. But I would consider it only as a temporary solution for eliminating bad odour- something like how using a toothpaste serves as a temporary solution for bad mouth odour . In all as a bath and body products manufacturer, I would not recommend the use of these perfume pills as its always harmful to touch the natural dent."
