Designer Scented Underwear

Carbon paper works on a technology called micro encapsulation. The black sheet is imbedded with millions of microscopic, ink filled balls, or microcapsules, which burst when pressure is applied to the top sheet. My idea uses this same technology to weave cologne or perfume into the waistband of shorts, briefs, and panties. The capsules could be chemically engineered to be more resistant to breaking so the lifespan of the product would be extended, and also allowing just the right amount of scent every time the waist band is stretched or flexed.

       Would you be able to wash them or would they be disposable?

       That's the beauty of micro encapsulation. I saw a demonstration of this technology once where they encapsulated gasoline and submerged it in water. After removing the powdery substance from the water it would still burn! So yes, You absolutely can wash the prduct without lossing scent. On the gentle cycle, of course.

       I have considered trimming an odour eater into a gusset shape and sewing it in. Or did I dream it?
