Since my nose regained its olfactory senses this year, I've been chasing the good smells and running from the bad smells.

The good smell of citrus is a delight, making me feel both invigorated and content. My cousin even made me some orange potpourri, though it's not very practical (or subtle) to inhale in public. People look at me funny:


Unfortunately, public spaces are where bad smells run rampant. So I began searching for a way to take good smells with me without an attention-grabbing bowl.

Have you heard of aromatherapy oils? I found this bottle of Fragrant Reflections Orange-Mandarin oil at the dollar store, and knew it would lead to a priceless solution to those nasty public smells. It would also be a crocheted solution!


I crocheted this yellow pad that soaks the citrus oil and acts as a scent diffuser. The plastic cylinder would help direct that scent to my nose.


I added yellow stripes to provide a visual warning to others in a crowded space, since I didn't want this creation getting accidentally crushed!


Then I stitched a carrying handle onto the back of this aromatherapy device. Transportable!


The citrus smell is represented by this oddly-familiar symbol, with its black shapes resembling the rinds of an orange slice.


The heat from these lights helps release the citrus scent and would make night-time aromatherapy sessions possible!


And here is the completed project: the Aromatherapy Transportable Olfactory Machine. Or, the A.T.O.M.:


This video provides a 360 view of the A.T.O.M.:

For my first smell test, I took the A.T.O.M. onto the public subway system. But even as the subway car filled with the revitalizing smell of oranges, I was still met with alarmed expressions from passengers. Why?


When I arrived at the next subway station, police vehicles were converging above ground. Whatever the reason, the scene looked like trouble and I didn't want to get in the way.


When officers began jumping out of their cars with firearms drawn, I decided to quicken my pace. This hectic environment was no place for an aromatherapy session!


I was nearly caught in a crossfire of bullets in this stairwell, but I jumped the hand railing and narrowly escaped harm.


At this point, my danger levels were on red alert. Was I the mistaken target of a manhunt?


With the wail of sirens and helicopter blades in the air, I decided to hide my coloured hair and go under cover. When night descended, a flashlight and the A.T.O.M.'s reassuring glow were my only guides to escape.


As darkness gave way to light, I stumbled onto a grassy oasis that was far from S.W.A.T. teams or public smells. And it was in this open fieldunder a fruit treewhere I felt free to inhale the refreshing smell of oranges from the A.T.O.M.'s dollar-store aromatherapy oils.


By sunrise, my frazzled nerves were soothed and my aura was realigned with Mother Earth.

I'll never know why I was chased on the same day I used the A.T.O.M. in public. Bizarre coincidence? Mistaken identity? And why the worried stares on the subway? I should add more citrus symbols onto the A.T.O.M. to make its purpose clearer.


For now, I'll only use my Aromatherapy Transportable Olfactory Machine in this soothing orchard hideaway.

I do plan to take the A.T.O.M. to the opening ceremonies of the 2010 Olympics here in Vancouver. With the crush of public crowds and bad smells, it'll be the perfect testing ground for more A.T.O.M.-a-therapy!

Yay for crochet aromatherapy devices (orange oil has saved my life, but I recommend to go and get the good ecological stuff, it will still be cheap as orange is so rich in essential oils), and wow, great pics on your story! I have a friend who makes this kind of pictures, so I can totally imagine all the fuss that was necessary for this! Hehe, it was totally worth it, and you found awesome backgrounds. Did you talk people into looking like that at you, or did they do it spontanously?

Huh... What a strange coincidence that the police would mysteriously start chasing you.  Must be a case of mistaken identity!  With the sheer volume of people at the olympics, I don't know if your ATOM would be enough.  Imagine the reek of those sweaty athletes!  Maybe you could crochet... oh I dunno.. a whole bunch of tubes that are dipped in orange oil, string them all together and strap them to your chest?  Then you'd be surrounded by the lovely aromas!  I'd suggest making them red, for pure aesthetic.  Maybe a deep reddish orange, the color of a blood orange?  Wink

Apparently you already have quite the Craftster following, but I can't believe no one pointed out what was obvious to me from the beginning - the reason strangers react negatively to your A.T.O.M. and the reason you were pursued by the fuzz is clearly because the logo on the side is being mistaken for the biohazard symbol!  It's not quite the same, but close enough for a layperson to make a mistake.   Cheesy

Ruby Copperhead: Thanks for the quality orange oil suggestion. It's amazing how a smell can have such a psychological effect!

The first bus-stop reaction was the real-deal. The subway reaction was from my gf's generous mom, who had to make that same expression for two hours on six different subway cars haha

OMG!!! I'm so glad you got away! Your crochet aromatherapy thingy is awesome as was your story. Will you be my best-friend? LOL.

WOW what a return on the comments there! Shocked

That was quite a follow up. Good show.

I wish I could write a reply to everyone's kind comments! I'm creating a clone just for that purpose Smiley

I'm such a huge fan of your stuff...not only are your various crochet projects creative, they are ever-so-useful! Everyone knows that subways smell horrible - an A.T.O.M. should be installed in every car! I first twigged to your genius upon viewing the 'Bubble Trouble' gun, and I've been envious of your awesomeness ever since. Keep up the supercrazybrilliantness, please. I look forward the next project you dream up. :-D
