Petrichor: one of our best selling scents just got bigger!
This scent is inspired by the levada trails on the beautiful island of Madeira, Portugal. The levada's are used to transport rain water from the majestic mountains to the agricultural regions including sugar cane fields, banana plantations and picturesque wineries. Levada's often run parrallel to stunning hiking trails, and pass through small towns, the gentle trickle of the water lulling you to sleep at night as distant church bells toll.
Petrichor has refreshing notes of rain water, moss, sage and amber to take you to the top of a quiet tranquil mountain in Madeira, where the hiking trails disappear into the clouds.
