Researchers have made a bizarre discovery – a perfume that smells better the more the more you sweat.
Scientists from Queen’s University in Belfast created a liquid that releases more of its fragrance when it comes into contact with moisture.
This means you could could start to smell fantastic the longer you toil throughout the day.
The perfume was designed by Queen’s Ionic Liquid Laboratories (QUILL) – composed of a raw fragrance that scientists “tagged” on to an odourless ionic liquid – salt in the form of liquid.
The resultant “perfumed ionic liquid” emits aroma when it comes into contact with water, allowing more of the perfume’s scent to be released on to a person’s skin.
The scientists say the perfume also has the ability to remove the bad odours that come from sweat, as compounds responsible for the smell are attracted to the ionic liquid, attaching themselves to it and losing their potency.
