The scents were created by a duo of visually impaired Hermis and perfumer Aistis Mickevicius
Hermis Kasperavicius (16 y.o.), who is visually impaired, created the scent for the home 'Earth'. The creator of the scent is an active, creative young man who surprises others with his talents. He creates computer programs, has his own radio station, plays the piano, sings and actively spends his free time. Recently, Hermis implement his dream of jumping with parachute.
The young man created the scent for the house 'Earth' by participating in the project 'The Invisible World of Scents'. 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 'Earth' is based on the fairy tale 'Adventures of Grasshopper Sportukas' 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 'Earth' 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.
