Beloved home scents and candlemaker Skandinavisk just released its latest products, and I’m doing a happy dance!
Three perfume oils for the body are now available, in three delicious fragrances that were developed to make us travel into the Scandinavian nature. The olfactory experience promises a tranquil voyage into “the stillness of the forest glade, to the grandeur of the open country, and the intimacy of the rose garden.” Plus, the minimal packaging is elegant and stylish.
This news comes right in time, just before the warm summer days ahead. With the heat, I tend to lighten up my beauty and skincare routine, and I steer away from heavy spray-on perfumes. Roll-on oils like Scandinavisk is launching are ideal – They are less irritating for the skin because they do not contain dehydrating chemicals like standard alcohol-based perfumes. They are also said to last longer, too. Moreover, it is a much more intimate wear, as it remains close to the skin. It is a sophisticated, delicate scent, often perceptible only by you or those close to you. It is soft, not overpowering; with oils, you wear the perfume; not the other way around.
Now the tough part is to decide which one to pick:
- Heia (heathland), remote wilderness, primeval terrain, nourishment for the soul. The rough, exposed terrain in the higher altitude fells of Norway and Sweden offers a colourful home to hardy shrubs, wild herbs and berries, and fragrant hills of heather.
- Lysning (forest glade), silent clearing, shadow oasis, serenity for the mind. The dense boreal forest canopy occasionally reveals glades and clearings, hidden escapes where the sunlight touches the ground and the flora responds in abundance.
- Rosenhave (Rose Garden), sheltered haven, nature’s bounty, romance for the heart. Nordic rose gardens are precious places, exposed to the raw climate only the hardiest varieties, and most careful owners, can expect their fragile fragrance blushes to survive and prosper after the long, frozen winters.
