eScent is a start-up in the wellness/healthcare/AI sector commercializing personalized wearable fragrance products for connected garments and enhanced PPE. We are developing a wearable platform technology that uses sensors and data to develop an actionable "scent bubble"; eScent's smart liquid dispenser interfaces with tracking devices and worn biometric sensors (in smartphones, smartwatches, etc.,) to deliver hyper-personalized scent experiences for improved wellbeing in the post-COVID-19 world. 

 

Our wearable patent-pending AI-powered liquid dispenser is for use in smart garments, masks, textiles, jewellery, spectacles and AR/VR/MR headsets. 

 

Inspired by science fiction concepts, NASA's Liquid Cooling Suits and biological actions from humans, animals, insects, and plants, eScent builds on 20+ years of research and a  Ph.D. in Textiles from the Royal College of Art (1997)                The Wellness Collection - A Science Fashion Story 

eScent creates an invisible, protective, personalized "bubble" that is localized around the halo of the head (or elsewhere on the body) using algorithmic technologies. This liquid sphere is diffused on-demand and triggered in real-time by contextual biodata or voice, creating a data-driven liquid dispense platform for a post-COVID world. Using advanced mathematics to establish and maintain the appropriate sized"bubble", eScent provides a more sustainable low-solvent perfumery solution; blending top, middle, and base notes together, depending on user-context or mood. Fragrances are diffused that are pertinent to the users' personal situation - creating a new personalized scent environment in a world where social distancing is becoming the norm.

Protected by a further four issued patents in Smart Textiles and Wearable Technology, eScent embeds discreetly into connected items, offering “personalized scent” as an automated-delivery intervention for mental distress or other health applications. It is a transformative technology that releases an appropriate “bio-synchronized” scent in response to different personal emotional or environmental triggers (e.g., hormonal excretions, temperature, voice, location, music, etc). eScent can help reduce trauma, enhance emotional and mental wellbeing, and mitigate against infection.

The eScent "bubble" technology has the capacity to truly disrupt and revolutionize multiple industries - ultimately creating a more sustainable, immersive, intelligent, and personalized wearable scent delivery experience for the  Creative Industries (Fashion, Textiles, Jewellery), but also the Healthcare Sector (Digital Health, Wellness, Pharma, Psychedelic Medicine, Infection Control, etc), Space Exploration, Education and Entertainment.

eScent is partly inspired by UBIK, Philip.K.Dick's extra-sensory perception science fiction thriller (1969) that tweaks the reality of the user with a protective spray of "miracle properties" from a spray can ("only good in small doses"). 

 

Similar to UBIK, eScent creates a controllable cloud of fragrance as a contextually-aware social filter to "tweak reality" and is pertinent to the users' own world, situation, condition or location - and at that precise moment in time - augmenting how we as humans interact with the physical world around us....
