Amber & Bergamot

Warm and inviting, amber and bergamot combined with subtle notes of geranium, black cardamom, sandalwood and eucalyptus.

Clementine & Lavender

A bright, fresh citrus scent of clementine, tangerine, bergamot and lemon… nicely balanced with French lavender. If you love citrus with a subtle twist, this is for you.

Desert Cactus & Rose

Deep and earthy, warm oakmoss is infused with light rose petals, water lilies and geranium, with a touch of musk and clove bud to inspire thoughtfulness and rest. 

Fig & Citrus

Clean and slightly sweet, fresh figs infused with grapefruit, a hint of orange, and lemon zest atop an earthy base of cedar and oakmoss. Wonderfully nuanced, it’s our favorite fig scent.

French Vanilla & Oak

Sweet, familiar and deeply comforting, French vanilla combined with oak, sandalwood, grapefruit and sea salt with a hint of clove. A unique take on a classic.

Ginger & Verbena

Fresh ginger mingles with grapefruit and lemon for a bright and refreshing citrus that energizes in a surprisingly soothing way. A wonderfully balanced fragrance that evokes peaceful spring mornings.

Jasmine & Peony Suede 

Delightfully sweet with a floral twist, blossoming peonies mix with jasmine, red apple, rose and gentle suede giving rise to a joyous scent for any occasion.

Orange Blossom & Waterlily

Fragrant orange blossoms mingle with water lily, iris and clementine leaves above a base note of vetiver. This is a delightfully elegant, soft floral.

There is nothing like a fresh ocean breeze... clean and buoyant ocean air with a joyful blend of freesia, water lilies, lotus and tuberose offers a truly uplifting ambiance.
