ScentOrb / Scent diffuser


Among various types of air fresheners, only few allow users to check time needed to finish the scent emission. "How can it shows the quantity of olfactory elements?" The idea started with this question.

Unlike the shape of other air fresheners like candle are limited to cylindrical forms which usually burnt down vertically, this design broke this archetype by creating a new form which shows remained fragrance through the rotating circular-shaped scented wax. The rectangularly shaped fragrance vaporiser holds and rotates the wax form. Intentional difference of shapes maximise the formative contrast and enhances the design feature as an objet.
