We smell dead people. The Gaurdian has the scoop on Kalain's Olfactory Links, a company that promises to capture the essence of someone who has passed in fragrance form. The founder, Katia Apalategui, came up with the idea, she says, "so that grieving relatives can keep their loved one's memory alive."
According to the story: "Apalategui rallied scientists at Le Havre University to her cause. A high-tech variation of boiling Dad down to a reduction sauce was developed, utilizing the person's clothing and a four-day distillation process. Along the way, approximately 100 molecules of an individual's unique bodily odor are reconstructed into perfume."
Here's a little video from the company explaining the wonders:
A bottle will set you back about $785, and because scent is very closely linked to memory, it would be an effective way to relive the happy times with someone who is no longer with us. But smelling like someone who is buried and gone? We're thinking it might just be easier to keep an old T-shirt to sniff upon occasion. But, hey, it's way less serial-killer-y than, say, Silence of the Lamb-ing it and making a suit out of their skin or something.
