aromLAB from aromKIT offers a fresh and creative way to blend new or favourite aromas to give you consistent results every single time.
Let’s face it. Blending scents is bit of a dark art. But if you think of aromLAB as the smell equivalent of Painting-by-Numbers it makes the blending process a lot less intimidating and a lot more fun – less intimidating because this interactive app lets you see the shape of the scents you are making so you can afford as many ‘mistakes’ in this virtual lab without wasting good raw materials, and more fun because in the process, you might also discover new aroma blends to suit a particular mood or a specific environment.
And now the scientific part. Just like colours have a reference model, so too do scents. At the heart of aromLAB is the Fragrance Wheel which categorises scents into fragrance families. You start an aroma project by locating your favourite scent components by telling the app what your favourite perfume is. Or alternatively, you can choose from a list of moods / environments. In both cases, a shape of the smell you are trying to blend will be presented as radar graphs – so by adding and removing component scents in a fragrance family, you will literally be able to see how smells take on shape, until both the Red shaded area in the pic above (the blend you are creating) and the Green shaded area (the profile containing your favourite scents) are identical, indicating a mathematical match.
