space perfume: ZEN

Posted in Uncategorized by rewiringangel on May 4, 2009

what a kick! I just had to post this since space is the place: Sun Ra!

 

Scent is out of this world

Get a whiff of this: A rose flown on space shuttle Discovery in 1998 yielded an out-of-this-world scent that scientists have replicated for use in a perfume. International Flavors and Fragrances sent the rose into space as part of experiments to determine how microgravity affects plants. Researchers found that space changed three major chemical components of the flower, a company representative said. The result was a new fragrance that has a more floral aroma than that of the Earth rose. The scent, called “space rose note,” is an ingredient in Shiseido Cosmetics’ perfume Zen.
