500 Days of Summer

If you follow my Twitter you will know that Sharky put me onto this movie a few months ago. After I watched it, I couldn’t stop thinking about it!  Consequently, my latest Beauty project for FIDM is to build a fragrance based on a movie soundtrack was on Summer and Tom.  Here is what it looks like.

Since this movie was filmed in Downtown LA and I recognize parts like 4th and Hill and Angel’s Flight, I did some digging.  Thanks to Google and IMBD, I found Marc Webb (the Director)’s agency DNA. The same one that Lil X is signed to.

How cool. I am going to mail this to him because I think he will like it. I hope he gets it.  *cross my fingers*

Here is the inside
I used NightBlooming Jasmine to represent Summer’s character and Vanilla to represent Tom’s love for her.
Smell is the sense connected strongest with memory. Behind the vial are snapshots of their relationship so it appears that all their emotions are encapsulated inside the fragrance. I wish you could smell it!
Scratch and sniff the screen ^_^

PS: I used Track #9 off the soundtrack, you can hear it here.
