Isle of Jasmine
A lush volcanic rainforest, replete with wild jasmine, rose, and saffron. Bunches of tart green bananas hang from the canopy overhead; light mist sprays from a nearby waterfall. Plush notes of woody musk and oolong tea float through the air.
Perfect for sinking into a sunny afternoon.
This scent will be available exclusively via the Keap subscription for July 2019 only.
“It is said that jasmine was the favorite flower of Hawaiian Princess Ka’iulani. She often wore a lei of jasmine around her neck, and the gardens of her estate were filled with the flower. Some even say she christened Hawaii’s native jasmine variety “pīkake,” which means “peacock,” in honor of her pet peacocks, which would roam the gardens with her. Sometimes, I like to imagine myself in those expansive gardens, surrounded by acres of starlike pīkake, inhaling its spicy sweet fragrance.”
“There’s nothing like a rainforest after a storm, when the heat and humidity have broken and the trees’ broad leaves sparkle with dew. The scent of every flower is amplified. The animals begin to stir again. It feels like you’re in the heart of the world itself.”
Jasmine Grandiflorum: An addicting floral that carries an intense and intoxicating, almost animalic aroma.
Neroli: Fresh and slightly sweet floral note coming from the bitter orange tree. Feels clean and slightly “fleshy.”
Oolong Tea: Earthy and herbal, with notes found in lighter silver and green teas, too.
Saffron: From the flowers of Croci, this earthy tendril is burnt caramel, soft and inviting.
Ylang-Ylang: A rich, jasmine-like floral, which adds a touch of lusciousness.
Green Banana: Not fruity, but rather tart and green. Lush and alive like the rainforest.
