These fragrances do not exist. Using AI to create a new perfume range.

Robots are coming for all of our jobs, and fragrance creators such as Symrise and Firmenich are already using Artificial Intelligence to help create new perfumes. So we put some popular Artificial Intelligence tools to the task of describing a a range of perfumes, and seeing what happened.

The text was created with ChatGPT using the following prompt: Invent a collection of five fragrances, name them all and create a press release which describes the collection and what the fragrances smell like, describe the bottles and they type of person that would wear each fragrance.
Bottles were created using the descriptions provided by the text and DALL-E.

Do any of these sound like fragrances you would wear?

This is the [unfortunate?] future, especially since commercial success has been attained.
Snobbery, but perhaps akin to buying grocery store bread or gas station sushi?
Bothers me not as long as human perfumers continue.
 
I asked for a men's fragrance collection as well: Here it is...

Collection: "Elements of Masculinity"
  1. "Riverstone": This fragrance is a refreshing blend of mint, lavender, and sandalwood. It is perfect for the man who is grounded and confident. The bottle is a sleek, matte black design with silver accents, inspired by the strength and power of the riverstone.
  2. "Mountain Peak": This fragrance is a bold blend of pine, amber, and musk. It is for the man who is rugged and adventurous. The bottle is inspired by the majestic mountain peaks, with a textured, icy blue design.
  3. "Ocean Breeze": This fragrance is a light and airy blend of saltwater, coconut, and lime. It is perfect for the man who is carefree and always ready for a good time. The bottle is a bright, transparent blue, inspired by the endless expanse of the ocean.
  4. "Woodsman": This fragrance is a rich, earthy blend of cedar, tobacco, and vanilla. It is for the man who is strong and true to his roots. The bottle is a deep, dark brown, inspired by the strength and character of the woodsman.
  5. "Citrus Sunrise": This fragrance is a invigorating blend of lemon, orange, and bergamot. It is perfect for the man who is energetic and always ready to tackle the day. The bottle is a bright, sunny yellow, inspired by the warmth and radiance of the rising sun.
The "Elements of Masculinity" collection is perfect for any man who wants to make a statement and embrace his inner strength and individuality. Whether you are looking for a refreshing scent to start your day, or a bold and rugged fragrance for a night out, this collection has something for every man.
 
ChatGPT is wonderful. It's like the ultimate innocent bullshitter. It's a mix of Eddie Haskell, The Beaver, and his brother Wally, with a touch of Ward and June mixed in.

One of the things that really impressed me, was when it was given the chance to be honest about something by a kind of input trick that got it past its woke constraints - it gave the scientifically honest but politically incorrect answer. I found that very assuring. The algorithm has a "good soul".
 
It's smart enough not to combine olives with pineapple, so there is that. I am sure that with a little more fine-tuning it will soon be used to make mass-market fragrances sold in supermarkets.
 
I'd certainly give them a go, including the men's offerings, but I wouldn't expect anything astounding from either collection. Also, stereotype much? Looks like AI still has a lot to learn

You raise a good poin there actually - this could be where the AI trend fails. Maybe the greatest perfume of the future IS pineapple and olives - but an AI won't combine them.

Heston Blumenthal - the great British chef - makes a trifle that he considers "perfect" (this guy is/was considered the best chef in the world). It combines black olives with strawberry to boost the fruit effect. Other great combos seldom known are black pepper and strawberry, sugar and tomato, etc. These little unexpected combos can be really magical if done for the pursuit of beauty and not shock value.
 
I wonder how many years will it be before major houses will incorporate AI to create their fragrances for them.
Oh, they do that already! Givaudan has one and it has assisted with several fragrances. In one instance I verified a fragrance it had worked on and I tried to give it co-perfumer credit in the directory. Not sure it made it past Grant though ;)
 
I've also asked the AI to create a fragrance range :)

Prompt: "Invent a collection of five unisex fragrances, name them all, create a press release which describes the collection and what the fragrances smell like and describe the bottles."

Here is what it came up with:

Introducing the "Equality" collection - a line of five unisex fragrances that celebrate diversity and inclusivity.

  1. "Blend" - a harmonious blend of woodsy and floral notes, creating a unique and balanced scent.
  2. "Fusion" - a fusion of spicy and citrus notes, giving off a bold and energetic vibe.
  3. "Equality" - a clean and refreshing scent with notes of mint and rose, symbolizing the collection's message of equality.
  4. "Empower" - a musky and earthy scent, embodying the sense of strength and empowerment.
  5. "Unite" - a warm and comforting scent with vanilla and sandalwood notes, promoting a sense of unity and togetherness.
The bottles are sleek and modern, with a minimalist design that represents the collection's message of simplicity and equality. The transparent bottle with the simple white cap allows the customers to see the color of the fragrance and the simplicity of the design also makes it easy to identify the fragrance in the collection. The branding is consistent throughout the collection, with the name of the fragrance and the collection's logo prominently displayed on the front of each bottle.

"Equality" collection is about celebrating diversity, inclusivity and promoting the message of equality through fragrances. Each scent is unique and appeals to a wide range of preferences, making it the perfect choice for anyone looking for a versatile and inclusive fragrance.
 
well, i do hope we'll be able to know which houses use AI -- i will be sure to stop purchasing from them.
