    SHE CAME TO STAY - A staycation experience, based on scent and memory

    "Some beautiful things in life are intangible. Just like clouds, we wish we could catch those moments and put them in a bottle - A perfume can be a cloud. Spray it on you and a world of emotions opens up. Memories, nostalgia, fantasies, dreams. Scents are shrouded in mystery. Intimate, yet curious and imaginative." SHE CAME TO STAY (SCTS) is an abstract perfumery that blends production with an immersive guest experience. Inspired by an eclectic range of popculture, history and nature. The design narrative is tied to historical insights from the local Steinway manufacturing place, influenced by it's muse Sade - as the singer's the epitome of sensuality. The concept and language of a pharmacy guides the idea of 'individuality, selfcare and picking your very personal, locally sourced and mixed ingredients'. The program contains a produce labroratory, a perfume pharmacy, a laundry space, an intimate sound room and sensually elevated guestrooms. Each stage aims to explore imagtination, memory, concealment and the passing of time by orchestrating the journey of the guest with materiality, color, light, sound and scent.
