Swallowable Perfume Will Make You Smell for Days (VIDEO)


swollable parfum perfumeI've been wearing the same perfume, Ralph by Ralph Lauren, for more than 10 years now. When I smell the familiar scent, it feels comfortable and my own -- you know? But that doesn't mean I'm not open to new fragrances if I found one that piqued my interest. One thing I am NOT open to, however: swallowable perfume.

A new product from Lucy McRae and Sheref Mansy called swallowable parfum is exactly what it sounds like. Still in the research stages, the small pill will enable the skin to emit a "genetically unique scent about who we are and how we perform our identities," according to the product's website.

Was that English? I'll spare you the rest of this perfumista's mumbo jumbo. Essentially, you swallow this magical perfume pill, a bunch of "interactions" happen inside the body, and then you instantly smell like "the best version of yourself."

Hell. No. If you're like me and think the pill itself sounds sketchy, just wait until you see the commercial:

Watching it makes me feel like I'm on ecstasy. Just so you know -- I've never taken ecstasy. But that's got to be how it feels. I am also now a bit dizzy.

Putting perfume on in the morning is not a difficult task. So why do we need it in pill form? I can't help but wonder: What if you don't want to smell that way anymore? I'm assuming there's nothing you can do to "stop" the effects, per se, until it naturally wears off. Not to mention, the last thing I want to do is put more unnecessary toxins into my body.

If I can't be sure of what the pill is going to make me smell like before I start popping it, there's no way it's going anywhere near my lips. Can you imagine how you would feel if your "genetically unique scent" smelled like crap!? Not only would that be uber-embarrassing, but you'd be stuck with that scent floating around you for who knows how long. There's no reason to tinker with regular perfume by turning it into a drug. You know what they say: Why fix something that isn't broken?

Would you try swallowable perfume?

I might try it if it guaranteed I would smell like lilac or pumpkins. But if its just a pill designed to make you smell like yourself, only enhanced, you know there is gonna be someone out there smelling like intense BO for like a week. And if it is constantly being excreted from your skin, you cant wash that shit off for more than oh say, a couple hours.

No thanks. Ill stick with my little glass bottle.

What Doomy said and then some. If you eat well, your skin will naturally exude pleasant scents. Celery makes men smell deliciously irresistible to women, for example.

I agree with tuffymama. My boyfriend doesn't wear cologne or deodorant. Bu he eats well, showers often, and always smells good. So, basically, b swallowing this pill, you're achieving something you could do naturally...and adding god only knows what to your body.

I've smelled some peoples natural scent and there is no way it needs to be enhanced

Thats actually pretty interesting. I would swallow a pill that made my "secretions" taste a certain way...like make sweat taste like honey or spit taste like cinnamon ! I would be sold. Perfume....not so much.

Hey Tuffy...what can women eat to be irresistible to men ?

1) That commercial looks like the trailer for a bad sci-fi horror movie.

2) I've never been THAT aroused by taking a pill

3) If I wanted to take a pill to smell, I'd swallow an entire bottle of garlic pills

Umm am I the only one that think the commercial sounds like a bad tummy ache? I'm getting visions of diarrhea, I don't feel any desire to swallow this stuff.
