Eau de Space is a unique fragrance that is designed to capture the unique scent expeirence of outer space. Although the average person likely hasn’t given much thought to what space smells like, NASA worked with specialists decades ago to develop the “smell of space,” specifically for the purposes of training astronauts. The scent experience was created with the intention of reducing sensory overwhelmed by the unfamiliar.
As for the scent itself, Eau de Space is said to be bitter, smoky and burned with notes of gunpowder, seared steak, raspberries and rum. The unusual scent is set to be made available to the public via a Kickstarter campaign, and the scent will help to support STEM learning for students via experiential education.
