An escape to a warm sandy beach in the sunshine.
The third fragrance in our Tessa Williams trio is on one of our favourite themes. We have a collection of seaside fragrances, and they are all different - different beaches, climates and atmospheres. This is an escape to a warm sandy beach, somewhere you can swim in the sea and emerge to dry off in the sunshine: the Mediterranean or the Indian Ocean perhaps. The modern description is to call this style “solar”; all fragrances of this type have a white flower, suntan lotion note. We added vanilla, musks, and Timbersilk - a pale woods molecule. It gets interesting when we take you away from the poolside, put you on the beach then drop you right in the blue ocean with a blend of oakmoss and Calone, the molecule responsible for the ozone aroma of sea air. Sarah used Atlas cedar for the aroma of skin warming in the sunshine and Ambrox, the molecule that recreates the scent of ambergris. We love the seaside, and haven’t swum in the sea since 2015. Close your eyes and you’re almost there.
