Perfume Tools by Jody Kocken


Dutch designer Jody Kocken’s own allergy to perfume inspired her graduation project at Design Academy Eindhoven in the Netherlands. Perfume Tools is a series of jewellery pieces that enable the user to wear fragrance without it touching the skin and causing irritation. 

The items, made from precious metal, absorb fragrance when attached to a perfume bottle. When worn, the metal jewellery warms up and the scent is diffused into the air.

Kocken showed her work last month at Up Close Wide Open, Design Academy Eindhoven’s graduation show, during Dutch Design Week. For more coverage of Dutch Design Week, see Stylus’ Events report Dutch Design Week 2012
