Arodot is a formula that we use to make a fragrance solid. It will remain solid at room temperature, but it will be hydrated all the time. When touching the solution, the liquid fragrance will be released, and a simple application “Touch it and dab it on you” will be created. It is an easy and fun delivery system that may perhaps change the way we apply fragrances. The Arodot case delivers 4 fragrances all at once.
