Paramita is a fragrant alarmclock that features universaldesign to aim opening your morning by a scent. Waking up every morning is already a stressful routine, but it is harder especially when you have to wake up to a deafening sound. Our body is naturally aware of the timing of waking up as darkness is turning into brightening morning and we can sense the changes of smell in the air. Still, it is not a simple task as much as being sounded and more often than not, some people can experience hesitation due to stress from a blare of morning alarms. As home automation is widely used, a sound is still in use as a common way to wake you up in terms of opening and drawing curtains and operating the ventilation system with nothing touched. However, the solution we present in the naturalphenomena of the morning that the sun rises or the air gets warmer is to use fragrance as a morning alarm. Paramita, with a simple method of placing an incense cone on a plate with the hour hand and the minute hand tells time by moving the incensecone for the hour hand to ignite it as time passes.
