About the home fragrance 'Water'

Explore the invisible world! Although we usually see the beauty of the world with our eyes, try to imagine that you have never seen the sea, the sun, the meadows - everything you can see in the world the most beautiful…

The main notes of 'Water' scent - peony, rose, lavender, patchouli, ozone - will fill your home with summer freshness and holiday mood.

The package contains a glass bottle with a home scent and five sticks which one of it comes with a felt of wool that will help the scent to spread more intensively and stay in the premises even longer. The scent label is also printed in Braille and inside the package is a description of the project and the tale according to which the scent was created.

The package also contains information about the history of scent creation and the interactive fairy tale book 'Close your eyes', which can be read with different senses: sight, touch, hearing and smell.

Vytas Palavinskas created an exclusive packaging and label design for home fragrances, supporting the social idea of the project.

The scents were created by a duo of unsighted boy Reinoldas and perfumer Aistis Mickevicius

The scent for the house 'Water' was created by Reinoldas Kelpsa (12 y.o.), who is visually impaired. Scent creator Reynolds has grown up wanting to be a scientist. Reynolds is interested in a variety of devices that can make life easier for visually impaired children. In his spare time, he knits and reads books. For the fifth year in a row, the boy has been contributing to the publishing of Business or Art books and testing illustrations adapted for the blind. With his advice, he contributed to the creation of illustrations for the books: 'Winged Letters', 'Baltijos valdove' and by participating in the 'Neringa and Naglis' book competition, he impressed the creator of the initiative by inviting him to illustrate the whole book. The book 'Neringa and Naglis' is decorated with works created by Reinoldas flat applique technique, which can be 'seen' by touching with your fingertips.

 

The boy created the home scent 'Water' by participating in the project 'Invisible Scent World'. This is a scent project, in which four blind children and young people, together with scent creator Aistis Mickevicius, created home scents in the creative workshops of 'FUMparFUM' based on fairy tales created by other Lithuanian children.

The idea of home scents was inspired by fairy tales

The scent 'Water' is based on the fairy tale 'How a Mole Saved a Rose' from the book 'Close Your Eyes' which is intended for sighted and blind children. This book, published in both: saighted and Braille. It has been adapted to be read with four senses: sight, touch, hearing, and smell. The authors of the fairy tales in this book are sighted children who took part in the national fairy tale creation competition 'How I See the World with Eyes Closed'. The four tales in this book also have their own scents created by the blind. Therefore, when reading these stories in the book, you can also find the smell assigned to the fairy tale and integrated into the page under a special sticker.

The scent for the house 'Water' was created in order to spread the scents of the fairy tail not only in the pages of the book but also at home.

Emotional and social effects of home fragrance

Home scents not only give coziness to home spaces, it can also provide relaxation or just provide energy as well as evoke our memories, joy and other positive emotions.

Egle Jokuzyte, the founder of the 'Dot Story' brand, develops the creativity of blind children and youth by implementing the social project 'Invisible World of Scents', during which home scents and the exclusive collection of fairy tales 'Close Your Eyes' were born. Its initiatives also encourage people to contribute to the joy of reading books for the blind and visually impaired, which is enriched by experiences of different sensations.

Everyone who buys a scent created by blind children contributes to the reduction of books donated to the blind and the cultural exclusion of these people.

Home scents created for unsighted children can be a great business gift for those looking for meaningful and socially valuable souvenirs.
