Scientists Come up with Perfume That Smells Better the More You Sweat

Scientist at Queen’s University Belfast have apparently developed the first-ever perfume delivery system which ensures that the more a person sweats, the better they will smell. It is said that the perfume releases more of its aroma when it comes into contact with moisture, leading to the person smelling nicer when they sweat.

The perfume uses a raw fragrance on an ionic liquid, which is basically salt in the form of liquid, which releases its aroma when it comes into contact with water. In addition, the perfume also has the ability to remove bad odours that come from sweat by attaching themselves to the ionic liquid and losing their potency.

“This is an exciting breakthrough that uses newly discovered ionic liquid systems to release material in a controlled manner. Not only does it have great commercial potential, and could be used in perfumes and cosmetic creams, but it could also be used in others area of science, such as the slow release of certain substances of interest.” stated Dr Nimal Gunaratne, the project lead. “This innovative development demonstrates the drive of researchers at Queen’s to advancing knowledge and achieving excellence for the benefit of society as a whole.”

The university is currently in talks with a perfume development company to identify a number of products ideas that could be sold in shops, but given its effects, it is bound to have a lot of marketing potential in the sportswear market.
