A myriad of journeys inspired me to create a collection of Travel Themed Candles & Reed Diffusers.
The memories evoke happy times and of course beautiful aromas.
My career in the Travel Industry offered me opportunities to journey to distant shores of many stunning destinations. The Seychelles, Mauritius, Hawaii and the Far East to name a few.
This Limited Edition Travel themed collection with indulgent fragrances feature some of my personal favourite European sun destinations –
Italy, Majorca, The South of Spain and The French Riviera.
up in Dublin in the early 70’s my parents loved travelling and I can recall the
family trips to Majorca with great joy.
We always hired a car and travelled around the island, experiencing new and fresh adventures. I have fond memories of the coastal village of Port of Soller in North West Majorca and the sprawling orange groves. The local tram ride in particular and picking oranges from the low hanging trees as we went along. I return yearly to Majorca and it holds a very special place in my heart.
This pretty and quaint fishing village of Portofino on the Ligurian Coast, just an hour south of Genoa in Italy holds lovely memories. It is an icon of elegance and is most appreciated in the heart of the summer months when the flora is at its most lush. I especially love Italian scents with their Citrusy notes of Sweet Orange, Italian Bergamot and Amber.
When I first visited in the late 90’s I was so taken with it’s old world charm. The town itself is very small with approximately 500 residents and with its relaxed atmosphere, cafes and designer boutiques and the fact everything can be reached by foot, as the entire town can be explored in less than 30 minutes makes it a very popular destination!
I have returned a number of times and it always enthralls me. While one is sitting in the iconic main square, La Piazzetta and looking out at the myriad of yachts in its half moon shaped picturesque harbour it’s a truly magical experience. With its cobbled streets and the most colourful pastel facades of the houses Portofino is the jewel of the Italian Riviera and my inspiration for my new fragrance – Amore Portofino.
