Santal Woods

  • On a last minute trip to the coast of Maine before summer's end, my family and I rented a little cottage tucked away in the trees overlooking a coastal inlet. Sitting out of the deck watching the fisherman was our morning routine. As the dew on the grass began to rise and the sun shined on the pines, the aromas surrounding us were airy, woody and fragrant. Each morning we would settle into the enticing sights, sounds and smells of the woods around us.



    Notes of cypress, oakmoss and fir hold the base as lavender, black pepper and lemon lift this alluring fragrance for him and her.
