In 2008, NASA recruited Steve Pearce to recreate the odor in space as faithfully as possible.

What is the smell of space? In the United States, crowdfunding has been launched to market a new perfume, “Eau de Space”, supposed to reproduce the smell of space, reveals CNN.

This crazy project was developed by Steve Pearce, chemist and founder of Omega ingredients, an American company which has the objective “to create high quality flavors and ingredients for the food industry”.

Originally, the fragrance was not intended to be marketed. In 2008, it was NASA who recruited Steve Pearce to recreate the odor present in space as faithfully as possible. The aerospace agency wanted to offer astronauts the most realistic training conditions possible before sending them into orbit. It will have taken the scientist four years to achieve his ends. Now, he wants to deploy this fragrance to the general public. His project has already raised 33,919 euros.

“A bitter, smoky, burning smell”

“The smell resembles that of a weapon immediately after serving,” explained to CNN astronaut Peegy Whitson in 2002. And to add: “It is a bitter, smoke and burning smell.”

“Astronauts describe the smell as a mixture of gunpowder, grilled steak, raspberries and rum,” adds Matt Richmond, product manager for “Eau de Space”.

By launching this extraordinary perfume, the two men explain hoping to make young people aware of the attractions of science and to give birth to vocations. After the water from Space, they plan to focus on the scent of the Moon.
