SCOOP IN THE SUMMER

We are all loving Insane In The Rain

IITR-14

Insane In The Rain is a enviromentally conscious label producing ecological rainwear.  Their ‘Happy Jackets’ are made from recycled plastic.  In doing our thing, we keep a bit of plastic away from the dolphins.
The recycled plastic fabric used is called RPET, RPET stands for recycled polyethylene terephthalate, or recycled PET.  PET is a strong durable and recyclable  material that is used for single-use plstic soda and water bottles.
The label takes old bottles and single-use plastic and turns it into fabric in order to reduce the amount of waste going into landfills and the world’s oceans.
Insane In The Rain’s happy jackets are inspired and created all over the world and produced by a team of caring and responsible manufacturing partners.  They avoid using additional or newly-sourced plastice in any of their industrial procedures, such as production, manufacturing, shipping or distribution chains.
When you purchase an Insane In The Rain jacket you ehlp reduce the unnecessary production of virgin plastic rain jacket fabric and simultaneously, upcyle from 17 to 23 plastic bottles that would otherwise roam our oceans.  By dry, be aware, be Insane In The Rain.

A LAB ON FIRE takes us to the olfactive paradise of the surfer

 LOGO_A LAB ON FIRE (1)
MY OWN PRIVATE TEAHUPO’O
MyOwnPrivate (1)
My Own Private Teahupo‘o is about calm origins thrilling ends, a drop of water in Antarctica, a thunderous wave in Tahiti, shimmering sunlight through a curtain of breaking liquid glass. A salty mist follows. An offshore wind bears flowers. Its top notes include sea salt and ozone. Belonging to the olfactive family of oriental marine, its mid notes are frangipani and salicylates, which are followed by dry notes of vanilla bean Tahiti, and Amber Xtreme.
 
Teahupo‘o is the inspiration for this new fragrance. Teahupo’o is a village on the southwest coast of the island of Tahiti, famous for its muscular break over a treacherous shallow reef, characterized by intense barrels with thick, heavy waves that dispense exhilaration and peril and demand wisdom and respect.
The awesome wave energy of Teahupo’o that traverses the expanse from Antarctica to Tahiti is harnessed in the salty-vanilla heart and soul of this fragrance: a bold surfer’s empowered optimism and mettle tempered with Paci- fic-French sensibility.
Carlos Kusubayashi’s newest fragrance is oceanic and intense in style, with notes including sea salt, ozone, frangipa- ni, salicylates, vanilla bean, Tahiti, and Amber Xtreme.
Behind Carlos’s inspiration and guidance for My Own Private Teahupo’o, stands Perfumer Laurent Le Guernec.
Head Notes: Sea Salt, Ozone
Heart Notes: Frangipani, Salicylates
Base Notes: Vanilla Bean Tahiti, Amber Xtreme 

CARLOS-KUSUBAYASHI copy
About Carlos Kusubayashi
 
Born in São Paulo, raised in Japan and a true modern craftsman and nomad, Carlos Kusubayashi has always encountered life and inspiration organically. After finishing high school and a brief stint in a car factory, Carlos apprenticed and worked for seven years in Tokyo under a master kyoji, a craftsman who mounts calligraphy or paintings on handscroll, screens, or sliding doors. His skill caught the attention of a Parisian art collector who hired Carlos for a lengthy restoration project on his Asian art collection.
 
Following Paris, Carlos moved to New York City where he joined a gilding studio in Brooklyn where he met a sculp- tor who worked to incorporate avant-garde scents into his sculptures. ey began to work together and this exposu- re to scents and their collaboration on producing fragrances inspired Carlos to launch his own fragrance.  
In 2011, Carlos launched L’Anonyme ou OP-1475-A, the first fragrance by A Lab on Fire, a scent that was simple but refined. He turned to perfumer Olivier Polge to create a modern, minimal and compelling fragrance, cultivating his collaborative nature. After adding two more fragrances to his collection by the summer of 2012, What We Do In Paris Is Secret and Sweet Dreams 2003, with perfumers Dominique Ropion and ierry Wasser respectively, Carlos’s nomadic spirit once again took over.
 
He sought out the remoteness and desolate landscapes that have inspired artists like Donald Judd, whose work is crucial to Carlos’s own philosophies, moving to a small town in the expansive deserts of West Texas. Here, he continued to collaborate with world-class perfumers remotely, and created seven additional refined, contemporary fragrances. Today, Carlos enjoys his passions of swimming and running on the Big Island of Hawaii and many of his fragrance preferences are strongly linked to his physical environments.
