The oPhone And Cyrano: Can Your Phone Smell?

Will Smell Ever Come to Smartphones?

Nicola Twilley | April 27, 2016



Two years ago, at the American Museum of Natural History, in New York, I witnessed David Edwards receive what he claimed was the world’s first transatlantic scent message—a soup├žon of champagne and passion-fruit macarons, dispatched from Paris by the perfumer Christophe Laudamiel. Edwards is a biomedical engineer by training and a serial inventor by trade; among his creations are Le Whif, a delivery system for inhalable chocolate, and WikiPearl, a form of edible packaging for frozen yogurt and other foods. Laudamiel’s message was the first public demonstration of Edwards’s latest venture, Vapor Communications, and its first prototype, the oPhone.
