Desert Garden

A collection of eight soulful scents inspired by the untamed and delightful flora that bloom in the arid wilderness.


Ocotillo
Juicy top notes of white peach combine with ripe nectarine to reveal a blend of hibiscus petals and crimson ocotillo flowers. A base of warm sugarcane, crystallized amber, and sweet honey lingers.


Mojave Blossom

The prickly sweetness of wildflowers bursting through rough earth. Aquatic green notes open into a succulent heart of pear, apple and florals, softened by warm musks and tonka leaves.


Canary Island Spurge
A floral composition with an airy character. Lively greenness and marine notes combine over a bouquet of lush florals. Warm amber, white musk, and creamy woods round out the base.


Mesquite
The elegance of a lone tree in the desert. Crisp bergamot and dried black pepper enhanced with fir over smoky wood and dried herbs. The base is a sensual blend of amber, frankincense, and cedar.


Lavender Thistle
Lavender’s herbaceous petals brightened with eucalyptus and sage. Warmth and spice evoke sand. Enriched with woody vetiver and wild patchouli.


Joshua Tree
Warmth radiates across an ocean of sand witnessed by the izote de desierto (desert dagger), also known as the Joshua tree.


Wild Sage
Sage bushes sprawl over a cracked landscape. Dried herbs with light citrus, rich spice, and dry greenness disclose a base of smoky vetiver and amber warmth.


Fairy Duster
Capturing the vibrant, spiky flowers of the fairy duster shrub. Lively citrus and pink peppercorn meet over a bed of sheer florals. Sun-bleached woods, musk, and amber evoke dry desert air.

Co-Creation in Fragrance

Brands invite collaboration with custom scents.
For $2,000 Goest Perfumes will develop a scent just for you. And while that isn’t realistic for most fragrance fans, shoppers expect co-creation. That is, a chance to shape the product and brand experience. Online communities like Into the Gloss (sister blog of Glossier) and fragrance subscription Scentbird are examples. So, how do companies provide adaptable products to the mainstream market? This month we look at examples of fragrance combining– a first steps in co-created fragrance.Scented Duos
From food mash-ups to simplified skincare, duos are everywhere. In fragrance, luxury brands share the art and legacy of combining two scents. This spring, Diptyque launched its travel candles in giftwrapped duos. Also, Jo Malone offered its colognes in boxed pairs. Look for these companies talking about #fragrance combining and #scent pairing on social media.Fine Fragrance Sets
Fragrance layering is experiencing a renaissance in the form of collections that mix and match. For example, Gucci launched The Alchemist’s Garden. It layers to create up to 48 combinations. Chanel also encourages us to layer its unisex Les Eaux line. Likewise, indie brand Huda Beauty says its new collection Kayali “…is like nothing you’ve ever seen before, and it allows you to create your own truly unique fragrance identity by layering different scents.” Meanwhile, Ellis Brooklyn introduced a Layering Kit with six scents.Diffuser Technology
Moodo’s Smart Diffuser is a high tech take on fragrance combining. It’s “the only diffuser that allows you to customize scents according to your taste, mood and lifestyle,” according to Moodo. To create a custom home scent, you load the diffuser with up to four scent capsules. Then, you can control the intensity and set a timer from an app on your smartphone.

Co-creation will keep evolving in the world of fragrance. How are you addressing demand for custom products? Want to explore this trend for your next product launch? Contact us at [email protected] today!­­­­

White Paper: Natural Fragrances in Laundry Care

Current Laundry Market: Fragrances and Practices
The Holy Grail of fragrance in laundry products is to effectively deliver the product’s aroma to dry clothes. However, because fragrances are a complex mixture of natural and/or synthetic chemicals of varying volatilities, this goal has proven to be difficult to achieve. The active movement and wide surface area of the wash cycle in combination with heat and motion in the dryer drives off the more volatile, smaller molecules of the top and middle notes. It is the larger molecules of the base notes that last.
