Fragrance is a sensory experience which can serve the purpose for self-expression and affect other people’s emotions and reactions. Something like perfume can make one feel more attractive and beautiful. Fragrance is a type of unconscious jewelry which adorns the body.

Jewelry designer Kyeok Kim created these soap rings as part of her Jewelry as a Second Skin collection which explores the extended boundaries of jewelry, in this case through scenting. After washing your hands with the soap ring, the ring disappears and becomes a scent. The jewelry leaves a scent very much like perfume and becomes an unconscious ornament.
