The rhythmic crashing of the waves, the undulating rise of the tides, the mist of seaspray… There’s something quite special about time spent at the beach. And yet, no two coastal destinations are alike, each one has its own unique scents, flavours and local experience.
Our hometown of Sydney may be intrinsically connected with the beach but we’re just as bewitched by other coves and bays around the globe. In fact, many of our signature scents have been inspired by the world’s great beaches.
So no matter which ocean beckons you, whether you prefer a pristine glassy surface or moody crashing waves, you’ll find a fitting fragrance right here.
The sophisticated Amalfi Coast
There’s a distinctly European inflection to Paradiso del Sole. After the brisk citrus and aromatic opening notes mellow away, you’re left with a languid blend of lavender and musk, with a hint of mandarin. Picture the curve of the Italian coastline with a thicket of orange groves in the distance and you’re halfway there.
The intoxicating islands of Bali
The scent of native ylang-ylang flowers hangs heavy in this tropical paradise, infusing the very air that you breathe. Equally intoxicating is our Balinese Ylang-Ylang fragrance, which can be worn as a perfume oil or burned as a candle, filling your home with the unmistakable scent of Bali.
The mystery of the African coast
Located off the east coast of Africa, the island of Zanzibar has a rich history and mesmerising beauty that belies its tiny size. Our Bois d'Épices fragrance gets to the heart of this place with a tangy citrus opening that reverberates like a cool ocean breeze, followed by a warm and spicy drydown.
The laidback Australian coastline
For those of us who grew up here, the beach is not just a destination, it’s a way of life. For our collaboration with boutique hotel halcyon House, we’ve channelled this sense of nostalgia and carefree wonder into a mellow floral blend enlivened with hints of spice.
The Polynesian tropics
Like the sun’s warm embrace, there’s something so comforting about the scent of coconut. Tahitian Coconut captures this magical blend of fantasy and familiarity, transporting you to the clear azure waters and palm-strewn beaches of the Polynesian islands.
