eScent Platform Technology Film

eScent is on an exciting journey. Find out why we are building nature positive and impactful solutions – and helping modern humans ‘re-feel’ life through new data-driven scent technologies that sense our body and our local surroundings in real-time and then dispense counteractive evidenced-based aromas, depending on context.

You too could be part of this journey by helping us to miniaturize the design of our transformative green technology. The patented wearable platform technology and AI-powered liquid dispenser can be deployed in a range of wearables, including reusable high protection facemasks, garment buttons, jewellery, smart textiles and AR/VR headsets for the FashionTech, Beautytech, Medtech, Gaming, Travel and the Psychedelic-Assisted Therapy sectors.
