MANE Perfumer Ralf Schwieger and Life on a Star Author Sassy AyR

 

Life on a Star: A Fine Fragrance-Scented Fictional Story Book

Our sense of smell is so powerful that it has the capability to transport us from reality to a tropical escape, a mountainous ridge or a mystic garden by inhaling a particular fragrance. That was the idea behind Life on a Star, the first scented fictional story book for adults.

Written by Sassy AyR (aka Stacey Bresnahan), Life on a Star is a fictional story based on the life of Sassy AyR who takes you on a delightfully scented journey with visual descriptions. From hybrid floral gardens, to cashmere sanded beaches and fabulous garden galas, the reader is transported to a fantasy land of enchantment.

This fall, Laubahn Perfumes, a new perfume brand, will launch two fine fragrances based on the book.

The Lost in the Moment perfume, created by Sassy AyR for Laubahn Perfumes, evokes whispers of wildflowers, fruit trees, driftwood and the warmth of the sun felt on a white sandy beach. The vibrant aroma exists on the scented page and enclosed scented bookmark in the book.

The Naughty Garden perfume, was created by MANE master perfumer Ralf Schwieger for Laubahn Perfumes. Schwieger has also created fragrances for Frederic Malle, Hermès and Yves Saint Laurent. It is an exhilarating scent of imaginary hybrid florals with notes of Elderflower and Sea Salt, and transports the reader to the mysterious Naughty Garden spoken about in Life on a Star.

“Having never been asked to create a fragrance inspired by a story, I was all ears (and nose),” said Ralf Schwieger, of MANE. “This is about flowers in a space garden, high up in the sky but bound to earth – notes of elderflowers play with Indian sandalwood in weightless territory. The green aspects enhanced by galbanum round off the natural floralcy and contrast nicely with the woody slightly mossy background.”

This innovative way to experience a fine fragrance via a scented story book will also be available as a perfume for purchase. Available on www.LifeonaStar.com, consumers can purchase the Life on a Star book, experience the scent of Lost in the Moment once received, and purchase the accompanying perfume online. Throughout the book, different names and places are italicized, symbolizing future scent launches.

Lost in the Moment and Naughty Garden stem from the story told in the book, creating a story book of perfumes that readers can collect.
