A couple of years ago, I went to Tofino and Uclulet for a little summer vacation, and fell in love with the magical, misty Pacific rim. Long Beach was breathtaking, with the constant mist in the air and the mythical rock that just sits there waiting for the surfers to take a wrong turn, and the whales passing by the Wild Pacific Trail enchanted me with their songs...
The air there is so crips and clean that it makes a perfect habitat for moss and lichen, adorning the trees with velvety green topes and silvery lace. And just
off the shore,
whales spit a mist of water from their lungs which towers abaove the
water and they weave in and out of its depths along the rocky shores.
Orcas plays on this theme of the marine creatures and moss.
It is available in EDP only, in two sizes - 4ml mini ($38) or 15ml spray/splash bottle ($120). It was offered for pre-ordering so the number of bottles that will be ready for the launch (June 12th) is rather limited at the moment (and I'm thrilled it was so well received!!!).
It was always intended as a masculine fragrance, but as it turns out - both men and women love to smell and wear it!!!
Top notes - Breath of Fresh Air:
Rosemary verbenon - sheer, non-medicinal and reminiscent of tea and crisp ocean breeze. Rosemary bushes grow at Sunset Beach, and the lifeguard there make it into tea.
Lime - with its sweet, slightly coconutty undertones, lime is a note that always reminds me of the beach.
Fresh Ginger - brisk and zingy
Cedarwood - an inevitable note as the beaches of the Pacific Northwest are often a rainforest, or gritty sand dotted with cedar logs.
Egyptian Geranium - with a slightly salty, woody and musky aroma, it brings forward floral elements while keeping it clean and frill-free.
Boronia - a dash of oceanic saltiness from this Tasmanian treasure.
Clary Sage - tea-like and ambery nuances to connect between the ambergris and rosemary.
Violet Leaf - a freshwater mist that is cool and elegant.
Seaweed - crisp ocean air with prominent saltiness
Ambergris - animalic whale secretion
Cedarmoss - reminiscent of the lichen hanging on the coniferous trees on the Wild Pacific Trail
Blue Spruce Absolute - scent of the Pacific Northwest forests
