Orchidia Visits ScentsAbility

ScentsAbility is an inspiring organization that helps individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities by providing job training, employment, and supported housing to disabled young adults. Their trainees become part of ScentsAbility’s retail and manufacturing operations.

During the visit, Technical Sales Representative Matt Trotter and Sales Manager Mike Mack gave a fragrance training seminar to the young adults at ScentsAbility. They smelled through several candle fragrances and were taught how to categorize fragrances into different families. They were also taught how to rename a fragrance using their newly learned fragrance categories.

Matt and Mike had a great time working with ScentsAbility’s young adults and were overwhelmed by their respectful, happy, and loving attitude.

Storytelling Through Fragrance: Orchidia’s Creative Narrative at the NYSCC

Orchidia Fragrances took to storytelling this year at the 39th Annual NYSCC Suppliers’ Day, one of the largest events on the cosmetic industry calendar in North America. Thousands gathered at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center in New York on May 15-16 to showcase the latest innovations in personal care and beauty products.

Visitors to Orchidia’s booth were met with whimsical depictions of eight fictional dragons from various short stories, novels, and film. Displayed in a trophy-like fashion, these creatures were mounted with push buttons to release billowing aromatic smoke, each having its own unique scent. Notes of sea air and Egyptian neroli described the breath of Leviathan, a Biblical sea serpent, while more gourmand notes of butterbeer, whisky, and sweets captured the magic of the Hungarian Horntail from J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. With a medieval throne positioned next to the dragons, attendees were encouraged to dress in costume, snap a selfie, and share their experience.

Another section of the booth captivated attendees through ancient Egyptian folklore. Visitors completed puzzles and solved riddles to unlock the mystery of Manetho’s secret fragrance, Kyphi, a perfume embodying the beauty and warmth of ancient Egypt. Once completed, the fragrance was bottled and given to each participant as a reminder of their travel through time.

Desert Mountain Rain

lightning_in_desert_mountains-1547184Ross Sprovieri, Executive Vice President, Orchidia Fragrances

On a mountain retreat in Santa Fe, New Mexico last summer, I experienced a new and captivating smell that I will never forget. After several months without rain, the ground cracked, dust everywhere, it began to do just that, rain. The aroma that followed the light rain was amazing. Suddenly the muted landscape around me became very apparent. The pinion trees, the junipers, the white sage, the mineral earthiness, the ozone, the dried grasses, so many things came together in a perfect harmony. An hour later it was all gone. In an attempt to experience that memory again, I asked six of our perfumers to take a shot interpreting my memory. The Desert Mountain Rain Series is the result, For a most amazing olfactory experience, contact us for the collection.
