Nomaterra Fragrances is back in their Capitol Hill location for this weekend! Visit us from Fri-Sun 10-7 pm.[/caption]
Nomaterra Fragrances is back in our Capitol Hill Pop-Up location this weekend (731 8th St SE, Washington, DC 20003), Friday through Sunday (Nov. 22 - 24) from 10 am - 7 pm. Come try out our newest scents--Malibu Honeysuckle, Oahu Gardenia, Boston Tobacco Leaf, and Savannah Magnolia. We will also have our hand-poured soy candles on sale, as well as a very special, all-natural, all-organic fragrance created exclusively for the holidays, titled, Beimeni. Beimeni is based on the mythical island of Beimeni, and legend has it that the fountain of youth could be found there, as well as riches that inspired prosperity. Our Beimeni uses notes of narcotic Egyptian Jasmine, Egyptian Rose, and the very rare East Indian Sandalwood. We will be making it fresh, on-the-spot for you.
Looking forward to seeing familiar and new faces this weekend!
Found in our Washington, D.C. fragrance, Cherry Blossoms are an integral part of the history of Washington, D.C. Donated by the Japanese in 1912 to United States as a gesture of friendship, 150 of the initial 3,020 offering, still remain. The first two cherry blossom trees were planted on March 27, 1912 by first lady Helen Taft and the Japanese ambassador’s wife, Viscountess Chinda on the northern bank of D.C.’s Tidal Basin. You can still view these two trees today near the John Paul Jones statue at the south end of 17th Street. The first cherry blossom festival was held in 1935, and now draws in approximately 1.4 million viewers (attendees?) each year. The peak bloom time is on average April 4th and the blooming period lasts only a few days to two weeks at most.
DC’s cherry blossoms are most of the Yoshino variety. Their smell has been described as a very faint and sheer rose-like and cherry blend, with a hint of sweet and spicy.
DC is the perfect fragrance for fall. With a variety of new and changing opportunities, from the return to school to the resurgence in work after summer, DC is assertive and powerful making it your perfect partner for the fall!
