Have you ever seen a beautiful, floral tattoo and thought to yourself, “This is great, but it’d be even better if the tattoo actually smelled like flowers”?
Don’t lie. Of course you have.
And fortunately for you, an ingenious design company is here to make those wishes a reality.
Tattly, a Brooklyn-based business founded in 2011 by Tina Roth Eisenberg, specializes in producing realistic-looking temporary tattoos for adults. Recently, the company decided to make a foray into both the olfactory and aesthetic realm by creating scented temporary tattoos.
That’s right: not only do you not have to go under the needle to get one of the gorgeous tats, but they actually smell great, too.
There are three different types of scents you can choose from when shopping for your fragranced tattoo. You can go herbal …
… floral …
… or candy-scented. (My personal fave.)
The beautiful herb and flower tattoos were designed with the help of French watercolor artist Vincent Jeannerot, and the realistic scents were concocted by Agilex Fragrance.
“We started working with Agilex Fragrance house, and they were so kind to experiment with us,” Tina tells Teen Vogue. “Their designers were super excited to take a visual design and then try to interpret a scent for it. We launched it, and it was an incredible success. It seems like no one else is doing it.”
And if these tattoos seem like too frivolous an expense, never fear: they’re actually pretty cheap, considering. A set of two will run you about $6, while a set of 8 will cost $18.
For people with tattoo commitment issues and a love of perfume (*cough* ME *cough*), this body art is certainly a welcome innovation.
