Welcome to A Lab on Fire – New Fragrance Launch from the Intertrade Group


Mystery means not revealing your secrets. The ultimate enigma. A Lab On Fire is a limited-production fragrance house shrouded in the mystery and genius of brilliant collaborations with the brightest talents in the perfume industry. Each contemporary fragrance is designed by a famous nose with the highest quality and freshness, evoking ingenuity and refinement. Package designs emphasize simplicity with an industrial chic aesthetic. Glamour is about finding the unique and luxurious in surprising places. Wrap yourself in mystery and glamour.


No one knows exactly how A Lab On Fire operates, and it is a mystery how Carlos Kusubayashi, the brain behind the label operates. A creative soul and citizen of the world, Carlos Kusubayashi was born in Sao Paulo and raised in Japan. He experimented in a variety of fields, including working in a car factory, apprenticing for a master kyoji who mounts calligraphy, and restoring Asian art in Paris. Kusubayashi’s interests eventually led him to Brooklyn where he worked for Japanese sculptor and scent designer Nobi Shioya as a studio assistant until 2009. Carlos had not much interest in developing new fragrances for S-Perfume but instead decided to develop a fragrance based on his own vision, launching his first perfume in 2011. According to Carlos Kusubayashi, the fragrance’s development is much closer to industrial design than art, that’s why his work focuses on the fragrance’s development with traditional laboratory techniques and rudimental industrialiSation of the whole process from scents to packaging.

Essential and minimal designs are paired with a provocative message to capture the essence of the brand and it’s creator, emphasiSing the complexity of the scent over the personality of the creator himself. Surrounded by mystery, the deeper identity of Carlos Kusubayashi still remains as secret as his fragrances, scents that beg to be experienced rather than known or recogniSed. From this season A Lab on Fire, as Carlos desires to grow internationally and thanks to his friendship with Celso Fadelli, decided to entrust Intertrade Group for the brand’s development.

A Lab On Fire breaks free from genre and categorisation, beyond any dogma or ideology and is worshipped by perfume connoisseurs around the globe. Let the mystery take over.

Residing in the atmosphere, she descends, wings spread. She calls out: make love. Make a promise. Make it last. Through the window comes a possibility, an opening. Through the unbarred window, a white cloud-ridge.
Be enveloped; join hands in hands as in a perfect union. On a gust of wind, wings fanned out, she alights.”

Taken to calling it calm, you sit for a moment in the sunlight. The air around you shifts slightly, a strand of hair out of place, the rubbish scuttling past.

Stay here as the crisp and desolate become still so you might breathe in–– immense, wave-filled and clouded.
