Pack your bags! It's time to leave work and worries behind and seek out new adventures. Travel allows us to encounter cultures unlike our own and people unlike ourselves. It also allows us to experience unique sights, sounds, and fragrances specific to regions.
We can’t buy your plane tickets, but we can attempt to satisfy your wanderlust with sensational fragrances inspired by magical parts of the world.
Konichiwa from Japan!Japan is famously known for its cherry blossoms, although they bloom only for a few weeks in springtime. Japanese cherry blossoms or “sakura” hold deep cultural meaning and have come to symbolize human life, hope, and renewal. Each spring there are festivals and ‘flower watching’ parties known as hanami to celebrate the blooming of the cherry blossom tree. Cherry blossoms have a less fruity and more floral fragrance. These intense, bittersweet blossoms turn Japan into a pastel sea of pink and white once a year, making it not only a picturesque destination, but a unique one at that! Shop all Japanese Cherry Blossom products.
Shalom from Israel!The Dead Sea, located between Israel and Jordan, has the lowest elevation and the highest salt content of any body of water on the planet, making it unsuitable for aquatic and plant-life and its surrounding mud and silt some of the richest on earth! Over time, hoards of people have sought out the Dead Sea to float in its dense waters and scrub their bodies with its nutrient-rich mud. Dead Sea Mud is said to reduce inflammation, draw out impurities, and add minerals back into the skin. Shop all Dead Sea Mud products.
Bonjour from France!The endless rolling lavender fields of Provence are in bloom from late June through August. This southern region of France is almost Mediterranean in landscape and environment, but it’s striking, fragrant purple flowers are quintessentially French. Lavender, although subtle, is an unmistakable floral fragrance. It’s soothing, anti-inflammatory properties are said to help ease anxious minds and irritated skin. Shop all Lavender products.
Aloha from Hawaii!Plumerias are an island flower that bloom in all the vivid colors of a sunset, always with a deep yellow center! They can be found in Hawaii throughout the whole year, and are most abundant in the summer months. This fresh, almost citrusy, flower is used on the islands to create celebratory leis and symbolize positivity. Its rich and excotic scent is thought to relieve stress, ease anxiety and elevate mood. Plumerias thrive in tropical climates and volcanic soil, making Hawaii the ideal, picturesque place to grow them! Shop all Plumeria products. Shop more here.
Namaste from India!When we think of India, we think of bright colors and bold, sharp fragrances. One of those traditional fragrances, lemongrass, has been utilized for centuries for everything from traditional cuisine to medicinal purposes. Lemongrass flourishes in humid, warm environments and often looks like any other tall grass, however, it’s zesty, herby fragrance is undeniable. When used topically, its natural antiseptic, deodorizing, and anti-inflammatory properties can leave the skin even-toned and glowing. Shop all Lemongrass products.
Greetings from the Bahamas!Harbour Island in the Bahamas is home to a naturally-occurring three mile stretch of pink sand beaches! These breathtaking blushing sands shimmer under the Caribbean sun, making this a bucket list travel destination for thousands of people. We were so inspired by these Bahamian pink sands, we developed our very own fragrance in its honor featuring a blend of tropical blossoms, island citrus, and a hint of vanilla for sweetness. We could all benefit from the rest and relaxation that island life has to offer. Shop all Pink Sands products.
