Have you ever smelled freshly-baked cookies and thought of Christmas morning with your family? How often have you caught a scent of something that instantly evoked a memory from your past, like a vacation spot, or your grandmother’s kitchen?
The sense of smell is often deemed less-essential than other senses, such as sight and hearing, because it isn’t commonly thought of as frequently-used. And yet it is the sense that is imperative for taste, plus is the most responsible of the senses for triggering memories
Scent memories give renewed life to moments that may have been forgotten, and even help contribute to creating new ones. The smallest familiar scent can spark a wonderful memory from your past that you treasure.
For example, No. 0324 Aging Spirits, a fragrance from our Signature Collection, was inspired by the different scents I experienced during my many trips to New Orleans, a destination particularly close to our heart.
The soul of New Orleans’ nightlife captured in a scent that is dark, spicy, and intoxicating. This alluring scent is born from memories of candlelit taverns tucked between alleyways, where patrons converse over Sazeracs and jazz, or contemplate life while watching an Absinthe fountain drip, all the while Cajun spices from local cuisine whirl in the sultry night air.
We infused all the scents driving these memories into one singular, unique fragrance in candle form, and we light it to remind us, and whoever purchases one, of our memories from the Crescent City.
A simple whiff of a familiar scent, or a brief encounter with a fragrance close to your heart, can conjure up your favorite memories allowing you to be transported to past experiences or to simply embrace and enjoy the present..
Yet still, you might even want to create an entirely new scent that will recall an event or special memory-to-be! Our Bespoke services allow you to transform your own personal memory into a luxurious scent. From the exclusive number, the hand-picked name, and each individual scent note, every single detail of your most trusted memory can be transformed into a high-quality fragrance and candle.
