    French company to bottle scent of dead loved ones

    52-year-old French saleswoman Katia Apalategui and her son are to launch a business selling bottles of perfume containing the scent of deceased loved ones.

    Katia was inspired by seeing how her mom kept her dad's pillowcase after he died, as she found the scent of him comforting. Le Havre University helped her out with the technical details:

    "We take the person's clothing and extract the odour -- which represents about a hundred molecules -- and we reconstruct it in the form of a perfume in four days," explained the university's Geraldine Savary
    Each bottle will be tailor-made, obviously, and will retail for around €560 (about $600). Katia also hopes the scents can be used as gifts between lovers for Valentine's Day, or even from parents to their children, if they have to be temporarily separated.

    We 'embraced' the missing Bob Harrod case as requested but 6 years on, are still waiting for further guidance
