Make a scrapbook of smells

Scentimo is unique way to preserve and share family scent stories. The project includes a bracelet with olfactory receptors and a mobile app with which parents can capture their memorable stories and bequeath them to their children for the future. By utilizing visuals combined with scents, special life stories safely stored in our brain can be re-experienced without solely depending on digital data. The sense of smell is an underexplored territory in design with tremendous potential for innovation.
