A pill could soon be a solution for people with odour issues. Swallowable Parfum, a new capsule that promises to deliver perfume directly into the body, turning the skin into ‘atomiser’ to transform sweat into scent, is currently in its development phase, the Daily Mail reported.

The capsule is said to work with the natural processes of metabolism, releasing fragrant molecules through the skin’s surface during perspiration.

Body odourBasically, the pill claims to turn perspiration into a fragrance - and because we are all genetically unique, our scented sweat will take on an individual characteristic, too.

Netherlands-based Lucy McCrae, the artist behind the unlikely idea, wrote on her site, “Swallowable Parfum is a digestible scented capsule that emits a unique odour through your own perspiration.”

Teaming up with synthetic biologist Sheref Mansy, the couple hope the pill will create a “biologically enhanced second skin synthesized directly from the natural processes of the body.”
