Here's How BYREDO's 'Scent Machine' Adds Smell To Your Music

Scent meets sound

The last couple of years ushered in a new appreciation for devices like diffusers. But Byredo’s new collaboration with speaker brand OJAS aims to elevate your home life one step higher by introducing Olfactive Stéréophonique a.k.a. Scent Machine.

What is it?

The device brings sound and scent together by acting as a diffuser and sound machine in one through the use of an acoustic horn that strategically emits fragrance along with the sound for better smell distribution.

It comes with 10 capsules featuring an exclusive scent made by Byredo and OJAS for the collaboration. The fragrance is inspired by the soothing scent found in Hindu and Buddhist temples, carrying notes of papyrus, ylang-ylang, cloves, and incense. Each capsule lasts up to 50 days on average.

Does it work with your usual playlist?

Unfortunately not. The ‘scent machine’ doesn’t work like your usual Bluetooth speaker, which means you can’t just connect it to any device to play any song. However, it is designed to play ambient sounds that work well with the scent capsules it comes with.
