When we interact with any type of scent, we are able to create images, sounds, tastes, and textures based on a particular scent. How do we experience scent without the sense of smell? My aim is to create a functional application, specifically for people who lack a sense of smell or struggling with anosmia.
Through my app creation of Scentify, users are able to experience and interact with scent visually. Users are also able to create a scent profile based on visual interaction. By using users' taken images, the app automatically generates keywords, color, texture, and sound that exemplify that scent. This allows users to create a scent profile based on generated scents as well as giving them the opportunity to share to the user based their found scents. Using this scent profile, Scentify recommends scent products for the users to easily pick out products with similar profiles. Overall, Scentify gives the user an opportunity to experience life with smell, building a scented community as well as getting to know what their ‘taste’ in scent is.
