For now.. I'm super honored to be going on a workshop / tour with SASA at International Flavors and Fragrances Asia Pacific headquarter and research lab here in Singapore to find out more about fragrances and how it is incorporated into almost EVERY PART OF OUR DAILY LIVES! It was a very enriching and eyeopening workshop ^.^ So thank you Sasa! Thank you Steph!!!
Qiuting reporting at 8.30am haha!
Grab myself an awesome seat to have a good view and sniff of everything hahah!
First thing we did was to follow our facilitators on a tour around the research lab!! You can't believe just how many scents the researchers work with!!! =OOO Damn impressive!!!
And these are just what i'd call.. Tip of the iceberg O.o
Shower time? Lolol. A bit lack of privacy right. It's actually simulated bathrooms.. Where the researchers do tests on shower gel / shampoo, on the bloom when it's in an actual shower..
Feels a bit like a police canine that day *sniff sniff* here and there.. Everywhere. LOL.
This room in particular and it totally blow my mind. I learn more about how a fragrance is formed.
It's not just science and grammage of different scents! There's a lot of human feedback, design and sensational feedback along with the latest styles and FASHION trends etc incorporated!!! =OOO
Sounds complicated but sounds super duper fun!!! =DDD Like we've smelled.. Something along the line of.. BARE SKIN O.O Or even.. Oven-baked waffle with a lingering smell of popcorn.. =OOO IMPRESSIVE MAXIMUM how the experts are able to come up with all these.. Smells that excite your senses beyond just sense of smell! In some cases it may make you erm.. A bit hungry also. LOL.
Hand soap / hand wash.. Do you know it's extra hard to incorporate fragrance to something like..
A simple piece of soap bar? To us it's just a cheap alternative to everything we need to wash lol. But to the fragrance researchers behind it they have to work out a fragrance that smells as best as it can be with limited number of scents at a limited costing! 越简单的, 越难搞!
The room to find out more about fragrances in fabric softeners.
All these tests to make sure that our fabrics stay smelling fresh from the point we wash it, to even after we pull it out of the wardrobe after storing it! =OOO
From here i learnt that fragrances work in different ways for different people from different countries!!! There's just SO MUCH of variants to work your considerations into!
The researchers have to actually go into many many households and learn more about their lifestyle before they are able to determine something that will fit in perfectly.. This is how much fragrances are being worked into our life and how much we take it for granted =X
I mean i've always noticed how my ENTIRE house smells like.. HAPPY and CHEERFUL after my maid leave becox of the fabric softener we got for her to use for our laundry.
But then i didn't realise that i love that smell so much but understand it so little. Now i do~
Happy and excited faces in the mini tour~
In the shampoo room.. Quite intriguing to find out how one same brand of shampoo could smell different in let's say for example.. Singapore and China and India. The shampoo all smell different! This is again, worked out and worked back to our lifestyles~ =D
And of course the way we shampoo our hair lah. But then i look at this two graphs of how people in other parts of Asia and in China shampoo.. In my heart i'm like "Bitch please" LOL. I at most 2 steps only. Leave the shower on, BUA shampoo on and rinse off. LOL.
After the mini tour it's hi-tea time~ =DDD Me likey =X =D
And back to the workshop to test how sharp are our sense of smell~
All the things i manage to sniff out that morning hahah! I guessed correctly perhaps 70% of it! The more interesting ones are like Madelaine (whaaaat!) and Pencil Shavings =OOOO
One of the experts sharing with us on what a scent comprise of.. And then we form into our groups.. TO MAKE OUR OWN SCENT!!! =DDD SO FUN!!!
My team and i! Hahaha all machiam pro after the mini tour and workshop! ^.^
Putting this picture in cox my teammate very chio lol.
Hmm.. Each of us get to bring back the scent we created! All i can say is.. I THINK SOME PEOPLE ARE BORN TO BE SCENT-GURU!
While others (like us lol) are meant to just purchase perfume. Okay! Lolol!!!
Somehow our team scent end up smelling a bit like new sports shoes LOL. Or a bit like citrus toilet freshener LOL. So i decided i'd just stick to buying a scent that hundreds and thousands of people worked hard for.. In the vast pool of choices.. I'm pretty sure there are plenty that speaks.. ME. Lol.
This is why i am also quite excited to be one of the scent ambassadors for SCENTS IN THE CITY brought to you by SASA!!! ^.^
