Just thought I'd let you folks on the Genii forum know about an effect I developed called "The Scent of Darkness".
It is based on an old fakir's trick, but with my own personal twist. With the strange looking bottle and the included routine, you force an audience member from a small group to select themselves. They are the only ones who can smell the "Scent of Darkness".
Ordinary water changes it's scent from flowers to vanilla to oranges to...Something awful! Completely under your control.
Take a look at it here...
Some call it a bizarrist effect, some mentalist, some just call it spooky.
It is easy to perform, takes very little initial setup, instantly resets, can be performed surrounded and is completely inspectable.
This is my first released effect, so please-
Let me know what you think!
