An Alarm That You Can’t Even Hear

Estefania Perez Medina | Sleep Enthusiast


We all have those days in the mornings when you just can’t help but hit the snooze button five or six or ten times. The blaring sound of an alarm is annoying so why does it have to be the first thing you listen to in the morning? Well, now there’s an alarm that wakes you up without those incessant noises.

Guillaume Rolland created SensorWake, an olfactory alarm clock that gives off a smell of your choice to wake you up in the mornings, on kickstarter. The alarm is white and is 3.5 inches by 3.5 inches by 3.9 inches.

SensorWake can give off the scents of Hot Croissants, Espresso, Seaside, Chocolate, Peppermint, and Lush Jungle. The scent diffusion lasts three minutes. On average, it takes approximately two minutes to wake someone up with the device. And if you cannot wake up a back up alarm will go off in three minutes.

The alarm gives off no sounds and relies completely on various scents to wake up the user. To use the alarm, all the user has to do is set the alarm to a desired time, put the capsule into the top of the alarm, and go to sleep.

For about 11 dollars you can buy a two pack capsule, with two different scents; Vitalization

Aromatherapy (Chocolate and Peppermint), Enjoy the break (Seaside and Lush Jungle), or Continental Breakfast (Espresso and Hot Croissants.) Each capsule can be used up to 30 times.

It’s a pleasant way to wake up, and has been tested by an approved panel. This device requires no heat, sound, or chemical reactions. It has an LCD screen, uses 110 voltages, and only weighs 0.93 pounds.

SensorWake is available for preorder     on and will be delivered in June. The alarm comes with a free toast capsule, without any scents for 99 dollars. Users can also purchase SensorWake with three different scents for 128 dollars and 70 cents.

SensorWake is a really good device for someone who hates waking up to loud noises, and would much rather wake up to the smell of hot chocolate. It’s a nicer and better way to wake up in the morning.
