Scented Time

 

Scented time is a clock based on the smell

Watches ignore our subjectivity and coldly mark time.

Each scented candle lasts twenty minutes and has a different scent, and before dying it gives its flame to the one that follows. Arranging the candles according to their scent and lighting the first one, we can decide, as in a ritual, when our time starts, imagine how long it lasts and be surprised by its end, all through the scents that mark the stages. In this way it’s possible to know how much time has passed by the scent in the room.

Smell is the most ancestral of our senses; smells are linked to our memories and the emotions that come withthem; to smell means to relive an emotion.
