Scents of Summer

Freshly cut grass. Pineapples on the grill. Ice cream at the park. Sea, salt, and sand. As life blooms around us, so do some of our favorite summer smells. Read on for our list of summer scents you can use to make memories that last through the years.

The Notes

Soft white Tiare Flower blended with tropical Teakwood. Delicate and exotic, a deeply tropical floral in a base of warm woods.

The Inspiration

The national flower of faraway island of Tahiti, the Tiare is a small, white, star-shaped flower that blossoms all year long on the cliffs of French Polynesia. Used since ancient times in everyday Polynesian life for skincare, fragrance, and during religious ceremonies to purify offerings to the gods.

The Notes

Sparkling Yuzu citrus united with soothing green tea. A juicy, refreshing fruit with Asian roots.

The Inspiration

The knobbly-skinned Japanese fruits are among the most exquisite members of the citrus family: with the same juicy zest as grapefruit, underscored with sublime floral. In Japan, yuzu baths are traditionally taken to ring in the winter solstice in public hot baths or hot springs, where the fruits float on the water, releasing their bright aroma. 

The Notes

Thai Lemongrass- fresh, lemony, earthy, grassy, and slightly sweet.

The Inspiration

Summers are made for the uplifting scent of Lemongrass, that also repels summer pests like mosquitos. This gold-hued shimmer glides on and stays on through dips in the pool, the perfect summer essential.

The Notes

A bold sweet floral, with rich coconut cream undertones.

The Inspiration

The intense heat of summer is only matched by the intense floral aroma of gardenia- wafting up in the warm summer evening air. After all, summer is gardenia's season!

The Notes

White neroli blossoms arrive with the fruits of the orange tree. Their fragrance is airy, citrussy, green, but with whispers of honey and orange bubbling subtly underneath. 

The Inspiration

High above the lush Italian countryside, splashed with vineyards and windy roads, Marie-Anne de Tremoille, princess of Nerola, Italy, wrote letters in the castle garden, under the graceful shade of an orange tree. She adored the spicy refreshing scent of the tree’s angel-white blossoms, and collected a basket to bring to the local distiller. Once the oil was ready, the Princess of Nerola joyfully anointed her white gloves with the fragrance. Neroli oil became so popular that it dominated the fashionable perfumes of the 18th century. 

The Notes

Fresh cut Lavender, soulful Jasmine, and a playful hint of Bergamot.

The Inspiration

It has been said that lavender is the soul of Provence, its purple mountain fields stretching to the horizon, the herbal fragrance wafting to the clouds.
