The Essence Wand is a modular structure of filters soaked with essential oils. This is a smell design object, intended not for external stimulation but for management of eating habits and disorders. The smell is recognised by a colour ring marking the top of each module. This is an allusion to synesthesia (Ancient Greek – simultaneous sense, joint sense) – when stimulation of one sensory or cognitive pathway leads to automatic experiences in a second sensory or cognitive pathway.
The pen-resembling shape of the Essential Wand has been selected due to its compatibility and intuitive experience of use. The cap clip can be attached to a binder or a shirt pocket, also prevents from falling off a surface. The threads at the bottom of each module allow the user to add up or reduce the number of modules, change their sequence.
