The Perfect Scents for Ocean Lovers

The Perfect Scents for Ocean Lovers

June 08, 2020

With two thirds of the planet covered in ocean, it is little wonder why so many of us feel a sense of connection to the coast. This #WorldOceansDay we thought we would help you ocean lovers bring the waves indoors with a list of scents inspired by the crystal-clear waters and white sand beaches of the Outer Hebrides; the perfect way to breathe in the soothing coolness of the sea from the comfort of your own home.

Designed with a blend of Samphire and Sea Minerals, our Oceana collection is the most obvious choice for those of you who draw a sense of tranquillity from the sea. The refreshing marine notes are matched with the saltiness of samphire to bring a sense of wild coastal calm into your home. Light an Oceana candle, close your eyes, and imagine digging your toes into the white sand beaches of the Isle of Harris for the ultimate peaceful night in.

Our Seaweed and Juniper Berry collection was inspired by Sgarasta beach which, found on the west coast of the Isle of Harris, stretches for miles along the stunning coast of the Atlantic Ocean. The waves that crash onto the shores of the beach release gentle aromas of seaweed and ocean salt into the air, which combined with the floral notes of the Machair flowers in the summer months, creates a blend of fragrance that inspired our Seaweed & Juniper Berry range.
There is currently 20% off our Sgarasta candles and diffusers here: https://essenceofharris.co.uk/collections/sgarasta

For those of you who crave warmer climes and water temperatures above those of Scotland (!), our Losgaintir collection might just be for you. The delicate, warming blend of Bergamot, Coconut and Vanilla brings a kind of calm only found whilst soaking in the hot sun on an exotic beach. With notes of almond and bright orange, it is a scent for those of you beach lovers who spend your time chasing the sun.

Our oceans are a lifeline. They are vast and powerful and important, and as an island business we are constantly reminded of the significance our surrounding seas bring to our everyday lives. That is why we are focussing on our oceans for the month of June, and donating to the RNLI, an organisation who strive to protect our coastlines throughout the UK. If you’d like to, you can donate too through the “donation” section at checkout, and we will match ALL of the donations made through our website. Thank you to everyone who has donated so far.

So, for those you who love the gentle stillness of the waves lapping the beach, those of you who draw inspiration from the coastline or all of you missing the ocean at the moment, we hope our scents can allow you to enjoy that coastal calm from the comfort of your own home.
