If music were to have a scent, what would it be?
The journey and quest to answer this question began with her family’s deeply rooted passions; food and music, says Lauren, the creator of Music to my Nose.
Lauren's father, a singer with a vast knowledge of music, inspired her since she was a young girl, sitting on his lap, allowing her to become enveloped in the electrifying world of all that is audibly harmonious. He introduced Lauren to Jazz & Blues at an early age; where the smell of Jazz clubs were musky with hints of leather and cologne mixed with the fine wood of instruments, those scent memories forever stay burned in her mind. Their scent-tribute to Jazz & Blues encapsulates those elements.
The overall experience, the cathartic affinity of hearing instruments and feeling the strong emotion, was and is strikingly intoxicating. Lauren's family's goal is to share those feelings through their perfume.
Lauren's mother, a devoted spirit to all that is culinary, captivated her interest through everyone’s soft spot: their stomach.
As Laurenwould salivate over her mother's freshly baked desserts, or her fragrant and heavenly dinners, she would stress the importance of using only ingredients of the highest quality. From real Madagascar vanilla, to garden-fresh basil, the difference in excellence is easy to taste… and smell.
Working in Concert
The marriage of these elements derived from the feeling of music and the fragrance of food gave birth to Lauren's family's brainchild, Music to my Nose.
Lauren and her parents instantly fell in love with the idea of creating Music Inspired perfume. As they learned the intricacies of perfumery note by note, and progressed in the development of their fragrances, they quickly learned that creating perfume truly is an art and almost two years later Music to my Nose was born.
