Za Za’s Scent-Sational Super Power

During her time forecasting fragrance trends and training to become a perfumer at Procter & Gamble, Alexis Wintrob, AB ’04, recognized the importance and growing need to foster dialogue, interest, and education around STEM-based career opportunities from a young age. Whether through corporate programming, community outreach, or celebrating National STEM Day, this book is a great way to introduce young children to science-based skills while weaving in hints of creativity and a dash of fun.  

The story is about a young girl whose nose would never be the same after a surprise encounter with Lizzy, a honey-scented bee. Armed with her new scent super power and new bee buddy, Za Za embarks on memorable fragrance-filled adventures. It is a story of discovery, creativity, and confidence that incorporates STEM principles.

Za Za’s Scent-Sational Super Power 
is a picture book for children ages 3-8 years old.

Wintrob was inspired by her twin daughters and their love of imaginative stories. A fragrance and flavor trends consultant by day, Wintrob used her training as a perfumer to inform her story of a young girl who does not give up in order to design infinite scent-sational creations.
