The Scent of the Universe
Solace: The scent of the universe, produced with Omega Ingredients
Base note: Fried steak (72.8%); Middle note: Rum (22.7%); Top note: Raspberry (4.6%)
The scent was produced to describe what the Universe might smell like and is based on various scientific findings. The smell of fried steak is commonly reported by astronauts after a space walk. Ethyl formate, the molecule responsible for the flavour and scent of rum and raspberry has been found in molecular dust clouds in outer space. Smoke and jesmonite decagonal prisms are infused with the scent in the installation The Dark Universe.
