We know you’ve thought about capture scents before, because we certainly have. Designer, Amy Radcliffe, thought about it and acted on it, which is how she created “Scent-ography: a post-visual past time,” a project that aims to capture the exact aromas you want to last forever.
So, how does she do it? Radcliffe describes it as a simple process: “Just place the plastic dome over the object whose scent you want to extract, then attach an “odor trap” over the central mechanism. The unit is connected to the dome and trap via a set of tubes that suck the scents from the former to the latter.”
The final stage of the project is to replicate the scents in liquid form. She hopes to eventually send the liquids off to a lab where they’ll be capsuled. The final details are very important, as Radcliffe demands she doesn’t want the “fragrances to be confused with perfume because they’re not to be worn, but instead to be experienced.”
