Sense

SENSE is a smart device and app that easily analyzes the environment around you. It picks up scents and recognizes the unique note breakdown. What’s interesting about SENSE is the graphic scent visualization, which gives the user a better understanding of the characteristics of each aroma. SENSE recognizes curated fragrances like commercial perfumes, or collections of unique scents like the food being cooked in your kitchen, or the flowers in your garden.

Information Design

The overall user interface design was made to be clean and simplistic, putting a major focus on the visual representation of the scents. With tasteful serif typography, the design reaches a level of sophistication. Bright colours and gradients add a sense of approachability & fun.

The visualization is designed to mimic different notes through colour and contrasts. In the example of Pine, the sharp gradient represent the intensity of the scent, but also utilizes colours as visual cues.
