A LAB ON FIRE PRESENTS: MESSY SEXY JUST ROLLED OUT OF BED
A Lab On Fire is a limited production brand shrouded in mystery and with some of the most brilliant talents in the world of perfumery as its collaborators. No one knows exactly how A Lab On Fire operates, and it is a mystery how Carlos Kusubayashi, the brand’s creative mind, conducts his business. A citizen of the world, Carlos Kusubayashi was born in São Paulo in Brazil, grew up in Japan, and now lives in Texas. He has worked in a variety of sectors: in a motor vehicle factory, as an apprentice to Master Kyoji in the field of calligraphy, and has contributed toward bringing Asian art onto the Paris art scene.
He decided to launch his first essence in 2011. Since 2015 the desire to grow to international level has brought A Lab on Fire to Intertrade Group, which has been commissioned to develop its brand. 2016 sees the launch of Eau d’Ipanema, inspired by Carlos’s childhood spent in Brazil and the famous song “The Girl from Ipanema”, and of “Messy Sexy Just Rolled out of Bed” whose olfactory pyramid expresses a sensory reawakening after a night of passion. With a short poem Mr. Kusubayashi celebrates the most intrinsic essence of the new and intense fragrance and image that is the diva of divas, Marilyn Monroe, to embody the olfactory moment with an image reminiscent of the famous photographs of the actress in bed, wrapped in sheets, immortalized by Douglas Kirkland in 1961.
Simple, clean sunlight. Warmth from the sheets wrapped between my legs. Warmth from you lingers on my skin. I just rolled out of bed. The rest of the day, the night—what we can do together—depends on how the sun warms my body, how close I allow you to get, how we touch.
Carlos Kusubayashi adds “The pictures of Marilyn are the quintessence of being sexy, a way of entering into the intimacy of the great diva full of hopeful innocence. There is something magically vulnerable in these photos, the light, the atmosphere… And this is the initial inspiration which I asked the nose Dominique Ropion to capture in a bottle”.
