Perfume in a Pill?

Swallowable Parfum is a capsule that is metabolized by the body to produce a scent that emanates from the skin.

Created by Amsterdam based artist Lucy McRae and synthetic biologist Sheref Mansy, the capsule contains lipid molecules that mimic the structure of fat. When these molecules get broken down by the body, the fragrance is released and excreted through sweat. The strength of the scent is determined by the individual’s temperature, and level of stress, exertion or sexual arousal.

The concept in still in the research phase.
Sounds like a great idea, but I’m not sure I could stand taking a spinning class that is suddenly over-whelmed by a strong cloying scent.

What do you think? Would you try swallowable perfume?
