There are few things more peaceful than spending a day in the woods - whether it be hiking, fishing, having a picnic, or any other number of activities.
One of my personal favorite woodland memories took place in Yosemite National Park. My family was staying at a campsite in the valley surrounded by tall trees and right next to a gurgling river. The shallow parts of the river were perfect for setting up a camp chair and reading. I was reading Harry Potter while sitting in this beautiful river surrounded by pine trees, and I could just barely see Half Dome peeking through the trees. It was such a simple moment yet one I will always remember and cherish.
Our Elementals collection seeks to bring experiences like this back. And spending time in the forest, whether it be in a famous national park or somewhere closer to home, can always create simple yet beautiful memories. We knew the Elementals collection had to have an addition that represented the forest in some way … enter: our Forest Floor candle! This candle has a fragrance of universal appeal that consists of rich wood and musk base notes over alluring herb and amber notes. Basically, it will make you feel like you’re in the woods! What could be better?
Here at Purveyors of Fragrance, we think making the most out of your summer is important. Some of you may not live near the mountains or the ocean, but I promise there is still outdoor adventure to be enjoyed! Almost everywhere has wooded parks, trails, and nature preserves. If you don’t live anywhere near what you would consider to be “real” nature, I challenge you to find one of these areas. Make a special forest memory for you and your loved ones! Trust me, I live in a big metropolitan city, and I am still able to find wooded areas to hang out.
Enjoying summer means enjoying everything it has to offer. So get out there and enjoy your state parks and nature preserves! Trees give us oxygen … not only that, but joy. And while you’re at it, shop our Forest Floor candle to bring these memories home with you.
