Top 6 Scents Inspired by Places

All scent and fragrance lovers know that scent has the power to transport us… Whether it’s to a place, a time, or a memory, scent is unique in its ability to carry us away from our ordinary surroundings, transporting us into the transcendent.   

With this power in mind, we decided to use the power of scent to create a sensual journey around the world. We aimed to capture the fragrance and essence of the world’s most incredible cities, distilling them into bottled journeys and perfumed memories. 

Discover how the world’s cities express themselves through scent, as you travel and transform your world using nothing more than the sense of smell. 

How We Created These City-Inspired Scents

In order to create these authentic fragrances, we traveled to each of these amazing cities and allowed the emotional essence of the place to speak for itself. We aimed to capture the whole experiential milieu: not just the city itself, but the natural environment, landscape, and atmosphere surrounding it...and not just the physical elements, but the emotions they inspired.

How to Diffuse These Scents

For the best results and scenting experience, we recommend cold air, nebulizing diffusers. Cold air diffusers are a must have for pure and potent scenting.  They are the only diffusion method that does not compromise the chemical integrity of your chosen aroma oil. This way, you ensure you’re diffusing your scent with the quality and efficiency you deserve.
