Måd

Måd

2ml eau de parfum

FAMILY:  GOURMAND ORIENTAL
TOP NOTES:  blackcurrant
HEART NOTES:  ylang ylang, jasmine, violet, cloves
BASE NOTES:  vanilla, vetiver, musk
ånd fragrance’s Måd is a nod to Madagascar, from where the brand sustainably sources its vanilla: natural, naked vanilla in all its raw beauty is blended with violet, ylang ylang, jasmine and vetiver for a scent that is as sensual as it is sweetly sophisticated. X

Anima Vinci

Sesame Chān

Sesame Chān

Sesame Chān

1.5ml eau de parfum

FAMILY:  WOODY SPICY
TOP NOTES:  ginger, cashew, hazelnut
HEART NOTES:  roasted sesame seeds, carrot heart
BASE NOTES:  vetiver, cedarwood

At first embracing the skin with ethereal light, the warmth of ginger slowly simmers to a haze of dry nuttiness – a cocooning, Cologne-esque experience, yet one that feels immediately comforting, at the same time. X

Histoires de Parfum

1899

1899

2ml eau de parfum

FAMILY: ORIENTAL WOODY
TOP NOTES: bergamot, juniper, black pepper
HEART NOTES: orange blossom, iris, cinnamon
BASE NOTES: amber, vetiver, vanilla

Peppy, fresh, cocktail-like notes open this scent with unbridled optimism, fizzing with a Champagne-esque effervescence as they dance off the skin. The sweetened- powdery heart that then follows sparkles with joy. X

Initio

Rehab

Rehab

Rehab

1.5ml extrait de parfum

FAMILY:  GOURMAND
TOP NOTES:  bergamot, black pepper, vanilla
HEART NOTES:  lavender, coumarin, tobacco

Mermaid Kisses

Mermaid Kisses

2ml eau de toilette

FAMILY: FRESH FRUITY
TOP NOTES: honeydew melon
HEART NOTES: samphire, sea lily
BASE NOTES: crispy green apples

The light, watery honeydew melon note that first greets you is pure aquatic-juicy joy; it is holiday cocktails on the shoreline at sunset, looking out to an endless horizon and all its possibilities. X

La Montaña

Alfredo's Café

Alfredo's Café

Alfredo's Café

2.5ml

TOP NOTES: bergamot, black pepper, cardamom
HEART NOTES: coffee, brandy, tobacco
BASE NOTES: amber, leather, incense

 

Alfredo’s Café – wow, is the fragrance of this candle evocative. One inhale and you can instantly picture the local square of a remote Valencian mountain village. It could be morning as the sleepy village awakens, all sun-soaked light, fresh citruses, black coffee and the incense-y smell of the church drifting through the air. X

La Montaña

Cloudburst

Cloudburst

Cloudburst

2.5ml

TOP NOTES: bergamot, lavender, basil, lemon, lime, ozonic notes
HEART NOTES: pine, fennel, neroli, thyme
BASE NOTES: rockrose, patchouli

 

Ultra-freshness has been captured in the scent of Cloudburst – that moment when the sun breaks through the clouds in perfect shafts of light; all the scents of a herb garden tumbling forth in one perfect aromatic plume; citrus groves zinging to life, all to the backdrop of the mountain now steaming in the sun, releasing its wild and mineral-like vapours. X

La Montaña

Fig Grove

Fig Grove

Fig Grove

2.5ml

TOP NOTES: fig, fresh green accord
HEART NOTES: hyacinth, orange flower, jasmine
BASE NOTES: musk, cedarwood

 

Greenery in the top notes brings out the fig’s freshness, while cedarwood and musk play to its earthy, bark-like qualities. All of which combines perfectly with the warmth of white flowers (a nod to the abundance of wild jasmine that also inhabits this rocky trail) and a little powdery piquancy from hyacinth. This is lazy, hazy, hotter-than-hot days captured beautifully. X

La Montaña

First Light

First Light

First Light

2.5ml

TOP NOTES: mountain pepper, rosemary
HEART NOTES: wild fennel, orange
BASE NOTES: rockrose

The luminosity of a sun-filled new dawn is captured with wild fennel and orange, supported by energising mountain pepper, warm amber-y notes of rockrose and aromatic rosemary. This really is an exquisite scent – both new and exciting, yet somehow familiar. X

La Montaña

Galán De Noche

Galán De Noche

Galán De Noche

2.5ml

TOP NOTES: orange blossom
HEART NOTES: jasmine, rose, ylang ylang

 

 

Few smells are more seductive than that of white flowers in hot, hot heat. Jasmine and its luminously lovely counterparts are synonymous with late nights in balmy climes and the mystery of flowers that shine their brightest once the sun goes down. One whiff of this exquisite white floral accord – which, specifically, features Galán de Noche, a variety of night-blooming jasmine that grows in Spain – and we’re under its spell. X

La Montaña

Sacred Roses

Sacred Roses

Sacred Roses

2.5ml

TOP NOTES: bergamot, chamomile
HEART NOTES: Damask rose, neroli, narcissus, geranium, lavender
BASE NOTES: cedarwood, davana oil

Combined with sweet neroli, crisply green narcissus and geranium, and dreamy lavender – as well as warm cedar and ripened- fruity davana oil – the rose note in this scent becomes velvety, sumptuous, and conjures up an atmosphere of rich history and timelessness.

La Montaña

Siesta

Siesta

Siesta

2.5ml

TOP NOTES: lavender, juniper, rosemary, pine needle
HEART NOTES: fennel, thyme, neroli, rose
BASE NOTES: cistus labdanum, myrrh, woods, moss

Rhythmically rocking to and fro, the sweet scent of neroli and rose on the warm breeze mingles with nearby herbs, woods and resins to send you off into the most sublime sun-dappled slumber. Heaven.

La Montaña

Three Kings

Three Kings

Three Kings

2.5ml

TOP NOTES: almond nougat, brandy
HEART NOTES: frankincense, myrrh
BASE NOTES: cedarwood, pine needles

 

Three Kings bears all the Christmassy candle prerequisites – pine, woods, frankincense and myrrh – but with a little Balearic twist. Sweet almond nougat, or turrón to the locals, and a dash of brandy give this seasonal scent a flash of brightness and warmth that, somehow, is so very Spanish. X

La Montaña

Winter Oranges

Winter Oranges

Winter Oranges

2.5ml

TOP NOTES: cinnamon, cloves
HEART NOTES: orange, red apple

 

The orange is a mercurial fruit – its zesty-sweet profile one that we associate as much with deepest winter, surrounded by spices and berries, as with high summer, sliced, juiced and languishing in glasses. And in this candle’s scent we get a glimpse of both. X

Benamôr

Alantoìne Hand Cream

Alantoìne Hand Cream

Alantoìne Hand Cream

10ml

In The Scented Retreat Discovery Box, we are delighted to introduce you to Benamôr’s hero Alantoíne Hand Cream, in a brilliant go-anywhere size: an unrivalled skin-smoother from a celebrated Portuguese beauty name, which instantly protects and smooths as you massage the cream-to-gel treat into your hands.

Botanics

Pure Essential Lavender Oil

Pure Essential Lavender Oil

Pure Essential Lavender Oil

10ml

Scent has been scientifically proven to have an impact on our state of mind – lavender, for instance, has been shown to improve mood. Which means that adding a few drops of essential oil to a bath, humidifier, or for use as a massage tool is not just beneficial; we consider it mandatory right now. This essential oil from Botanics is precisely the kind of formulation we reach for – 100% pure lavender oil that’s bursting with all the wellness benefits of this herbaceous plant.

E Cooking

Day Cream

Day Cream

Day Cream

15ml

The hydrating cream, by Danish brand Ecooking is designed for all genders and all ages – formulated with 100% organic oils that are combined with the highest quality natural peptides and vitamins, specifically hyadisine, which mimics hyaluronic acid, and trylagen, to support collagen production.

Legology

Exfo-Lite Stimulating Salts For Legs

Exfo-Lite Stimulating Salts For Legs

Exfo-Lite Stimulating Salts For Legs

50ml

Hands up who lavishes as much attention on their leg care routine as they do on their skincare routine? Us neither – but this is precisely what Legology is on a mission to correct. This scrub, for instance, is packed with diuretic, detoxifying Himalayan pink crystals and sea salt, and formulated to not only smooth the skin but to encourage – through the scrub itself and massage application – better blood flow to our often-neglected lower half. X

Molton Brown

Orange & Bergamot Bath & Shower Gel

Orange & Bergamot Bath & Shower Gel

Orange & Bergamot Bath & Shower Gel

100ml

Whenever the weather outside is sub-optimal, there are few scents as uplifting as those that remind us of sunshine. Fortunately for us, Molton Brown has perfected one such scent. This glorious Bath & Shower Gel mirrors the olfactive pyramid of Molton Brown’s Orange & Bergamot Eau de Toilette: orange kicks off an uplifting sensory experience, heightened by mandarin and neroli notes that transport us to citrus groves in Seville.
