Solace: The Scent of the Universe  Base note: Fried steak (72.8%); Middle note: Rum (22.7%); Top note: Raspberry (4.6%). Produced with Omega Ingredients. Infused in jesmonite twisted decagonal prisms.

The smell of fried steak is commonly reported by astronauts after a space walk. Ethyl formate, the molecule responsible for the flavour and scent of rum and raspberry has been found in molecular dust clouds in outer space.

The proportions of each note are equivalent to the amounts of dark matter, ordinary matter and dark energy scientists believe make up the Universe.
