We've been hard at work all summer on new city-inspired scents, traveling to these great American cities, and finding out what makes them unique. We've done our research too. Did you know that Gardenia Manii, is a type of gardenia that can only be found on the island of Oahu? Gardenia is a succulently rich, jasmine and vanilla-like scent, and it is found as the key ingredient in one of our newest fragrances, Oahu Gardenia. Plumeria, an exotic Hawaiian tropical flower used to create leis can also be found in the Oahu fragrance. In addition, we are excited to also debut Boston Tobacco Leaf, Savannah Magnolia, and Malibu Honeysuckle (our favorite to wear right now in this beautiful autumn weather). Each of these new scents come in 10ml perfume oil roll-ons. What do you think these great cities should smell like?
You can try out all our scents in the Nomaterra adventure set.
Perhaps they will remind you of your hometown, a place you've been to, or a place you dream of going to.
Found in our classic East Hampton fragrance, Atlantic White Cedar originally thrived in swampy, low-elevation wetlands, characteristic of the Hampton and Montauk areas. The swamps were destroyed by rising sea levels, as well as lumbered, drained and cleared for farmland, but a few Atlantic White Cedar stands still remain. Before Long Island’s population boom, cedar swamps formed an almost continuous chain from Brooklyn to Montauk Point.This special cedar is typical of some historic rustic cedar shingles found on many of the waterfront homes in the Hamptons and Montauk. In 2011, tree trunk remains of the Atlantic White Cedar had been exposed on the shore due to extreme erosion from Hurricane Irene, and were found to be dating back about 4500 years ago.
East Hampton is a light, woody floral scent. It is sophisticated and elegant, with a Bohemian twist. East Hampton invites you to experience the feelings of artists and writers past, lured by the promise of golden, wispy dunes, refreshing breezes, and quaint front porches. Try it here.
