Scent Rhythm – The smell of time by Aisen Caro Chacin

Created by Aisen Caro Chacin, a graduate from Parsons, Scent Rhythm is a timekeeping device that maps relational olfactory sequences to the body's circadian cycle. The device, which you can build yourself following the instructions available on the site, attempts to keep a chemical watch on the circadian rhythm, by administering fragrance+supplement concoctions associated with the daily activity of the moment to promote the production of certain neurotransmitters, such as chamomile+melatonin during sleep, espresso+caffeine during the awaken state.

The sense of smell is a chemoreceptor, which means that these sensors can detect chemicals. The sense of time, chronoception, is not based on the function of a specific organ, but rather the result of the interaction of the cerebral cortex, cerebellum and basal ganglia.
