The scent of the wide world space
What do you think world space smells like? Dr. Raymond Floyd sat contemplating a white Chesterfield chair over the glaring glass tiles of a neo-Victorian space station at the other end of a wondrous wormhole. If one believed in the creation story, it would probably be incense that filled the vastness. Balsamic boswellian images of smoking amber spun out of his imagination.
Or would our senses be deceived by chemical compounds? Those in our head, our spirit, the stardust of the known and unknown periodic table? What do you think the white leather of this chair smells of, now that it is in an imaginary universe? And if the image of the chair were not here now, I would imagine it, because of the chemical compound that tries to imitate it?
Does the room really smell of smoking wood, even if this was only detected on one planet? What would my skin smell like if it were made of metals that had started to oxidize? Would it become animal powder? Could a reddish-smelling balsamic acid possibly exist?
Prudently, Dr. Floyd put his thoughts on paper, with a pencil, or was it a cedar? I can taste in zero gravity, but are there smells in a vacuum? Perhaps they would walk like airy light ether. Dr. Floyd stared from the rotating space station into infinity, at the glowing lights of the past. H.A.L. had to smile **
With "Methaldone", Rodrigo Flores Roux, in cooperation with astronauts from the ISS, tried to imitate the smell of space. An ambitious concept, which he consistently tried to implement with the purely synthetic fragrances Silvavone (described as animalistically powdery or wet metallic), Boisiris (metallic / smoky wooden), Rosyrane (sour synthetic floral) and Ambermax (amber / cedar-like), some of which were created especially for this perfume, to recreate the "metallic smell of the spaceship, the tart smoky scent when leaving the cockpit."
The result is a rather skin-close projecting, airy, light, balsamic incense scent, wafting in a cloud of red resin drops with slightly acidic and light woody-smoky components. I do not perceive leather, just like a development. My space walk lasted about four to five hours.
