The aluminium bracelet can be refilled with small recyclable PET sachets of perfume. The perfume bracelet suspends the oil based perfume in a polyeurethane foam. Through tightening a threaded screw pressure in the foam can be increased and more perfume can be pushed out around the wrist.
I aimed to address some existing problems with perfume bottles. They are deliberately designed to make dissassembly difficult to prevent reuse, and contain complex assemblies inside the atomiser. The perfume bottle I dissassembled had 12 parts.
I built several concept prototypes and conducted some user testing of the concept. I experimented with different types of perfume and foam.
I used CES edupak to analyse the environmental impact of the transport, use and disposal of both a typical perfume bottle and my redesign. My concept resulted in a significant improvement of embodied energy and carbon footprint.
Please see the report below for further detail about the design process and techincal analysis of the project.
