Opus Oils Announces The Official Release Of The Olfactory Breakthrough, “Eau Pear Tingle” - A Multi-Sensory Fragrance Experience That Was Designed To Be Sensed By Those With Anosmia (Inability To Perceive Odors) & Savored By Connoisseurs Of Fine Artisan Aromatics.
Hollywood, CA – December 9th, 2011 – Opus Oils, a Perfume Atelier located in the heart of glamorous Hollywood, CA announced the Official Release of the olfactory breakthrough, “Eau Pear Tingle” - a multi-sensory fragrance experience that was designed to be sensed by those with anosmia (inability to perceive odors) & savored by connoisseurs of fine artisan aromatics. Eau Pear Tingle is available at OPUS OILS’ Jitterbug Perfume Parlour located at 4959 Hollywood Blvd., Hollywood, CA 90027 or online at www.OpusOils.com starting December 16th, 2011.
A delightfully fresh & stimulating fragrance, “Eau Pear Tingle” made its official debut at the International Fragrance Association (IFRA) Fall Luncheon, where it was unveiled to industry insiders and billed as "the future of perfumery" by keynote speaker, Michelle Krell Kydd, award-winning writer for Perfumer & Flavorist Magazine & Glass Petal Smoke.
This special, first of its kind scent was born out of love and science. Created by Perfumer Kedra Hart, with love for her anosmic mother, per the request of award winning writer Michelle Krell Kydd, who was inspired to post the fragrance brief on Twitter, out of love for her friend Kathleen Cochran who is facing losing her sense of smell due to Parkinson’s disease.
Michelle Krell Kydd had this to say about Eau Pear Tingle:
"Eau Pear Tingle is as much about "sensation" as it is about the unique ability that perfume has to express periods of time. The fragrance starts out with a modern mouthwatering juicy twist that is redolent of green pear, pineapple and a hint of coconut. This is followed by the trigeminal effect of camphor, mint and black pepper that has a delightful side effect; it steadies the breath with a mild cooling sensation complemented by the essence of fir and wood shavings. The perfume dries down to an addictive classic base that is rich in sandalwood and musk. When you wear Eau Pear Tingle you journey from the present into the future and repose in the past. The fact that someone who has anosmia is able to sense this fragrance is truly an innovation in the art of perfumery. It is also cause for the industry to consider anosmia as a source of inspiration for scent creation targeting connoisseurs as well as the 65+ demographic that is regularly snubbed by the industry; whether they have age related smell loss or not…”
Eau Pear Tingle has intrigued the senses of none other than Dr. Leslie Vosshall, a renown neurogenetics researcher/professor who directs The Vosshall Lab at The Rockefeller University. Dr. Vosshall's work focuses on olfaction, specifically on how odor stimuli are processed and perceived. Her enthusiastic response was reported on Glass Petal Smoke, “…Eau Pear Tingle is a heady mix of a gazillion things—pear/pineapple/coconut predominate at the start. On the waning side it starts to really smell elegant in a way that I am unable to articulate. I wish I could experience it from the point of view of an anosmic to see how they feel about it. Fascinating.”
