Unisex Botanical Fragrance
Escape to an island off the coast of Maine to a cliffside cabin overlooking the sea. This fresh, woody fragrance captures the sensation of returning from a sun-filled sail on a perfect Summer day. Sandalwood and seaweed notes conjure the image of waves meeting a rocky shoreline, as a sweet breeze drifts to brush your salt-kissed skin. Sparks of amber and vanilla intertwine bringing a warm afternoon nap by a garden to mind, as moored boats glisten in the sun nearby.
This fragrance is all natural, made entirely from plant essences with no synthetic fragrance materials. The pure alcohol base is distilled from organically grown grain.
This fragrance is a wonderful collaboration between myself and Priya Narasimhan, who I met through friends at a botanical fragrance class she was teaching. I was blown away by Priya’s attention to detail, knowledge of fragrance structure, and ability to convey a story through scent. As soon as I smelled the fossilized amber, she showed in the class, I knew the direction I wanted to take with the fragrance. Fossilized amber reminded me of the inside of my grandfather’s boat, which we would sail around the small rocky islands where my family has a cottage in Maine. I wanted to capture the feeling of coming off the sailboat, salty and fresh with some lingering tanning oil, ready for a nap on the porch swing. After months of working with Priya, we came to this beautiful botanical fragrance aptly named WATERLEDGE, the name my great-grandparents gave their cliffside cottage over 50 years ago.
