If perfume gives you headaches or affects your allergies, a fragrance pill might be the perfect invention for you. Swallowable Parfum is a company that claims to make, well, swallowable parfum. From their website:
Fragrance molecules are excreted through the skins surface during perspiration, leaving tiny droplets on the skin that emanate a unique odor. The potency of scent is determined by each individuals acclimatization to temperature, stress, exercise or sexual arousal.
