Waking up to the smell of bacon every day may not be plausible, but you may be able to fall asleep to some equally pleasant (though less … meaty) smells. Meet the Oria from Sensorwake, described as a “smart, intuitive, and nonintrusive device that improves sleep quality and recharges our personal batteries using the power of scents.”
It’s a follow-up to Sensorwake’s first product, an olfactory alarm clock that woke you up with pleasant smells. The Oria, however, isn’t as interested in getting you out of bed as it is about enjoying your time in bed. By working with fragrance and flavor specialists at Givaudan, Sensorwake has created a device that employs sleep enhancing fragrances to help you sleep better and longer, and wake up feeling more refreshed.
In studies conducted by Givaudan and the Clinical Sleep Center at Loughborough University, scientists have determined that certain smells do indeed impact sleep quality. To that end, Oria is using two patented scents to help you get some rest.
