Swallowable Perfume: Awesome Technology or Just Ridiculous?

I’m all for a good perfume.   I love shopping for perfumes, trying the different scents.  Don’t get me wrong I don’t go to the perfume counter and douse myself.  I try the perfumes on the sample sticks then if I really like it I will try it on my wrist, walk around for about 20 minutes and if it mixes well with my body chemistry I have found a new perfume.  I don’t mind sampling, but I think I would mind swallowing my perfume.

According to an article on

Designed by Harvard University synthetic biologist Sheref Mansy and Australian body architect Lucy McRae, the pill enables the human skin to emit a genetically unique scent.

The way it works? Fragrance molecules are excreted through the skins surface while you perspire.


According to the website  The Perfume is in the research phase.

I’m not sure how I feel about a capsule you swallow to have fragrance excrete from your skin.

You could spray perfume on your skin or you can swallow a pill and have your perfume excrete when you sweat?  I want to smell pretty when I don’t sweat and when I do so I’m not sure about this one.

What do you think?  Would you swallow a perfume pill?
