For this weeks blog post, our wonderful Alessia has put together a few words on one of our favourite scents for the summer season, Summer Bliss! Read on to get the low down...
“The evocative power of smell”
The smell in the air after heavy rainfall in a hot climate, the fresh smell of spring, the warm cinnamon spice scent of Christmas. It is of no coincidence that such smells may evoke memories, as we know the human body to be wonderful and complex. Our sense of smell is handled by the olfactory system. It transmits messages to the front of the brain ,where the signals are processed, influencing emotions and triggering memories .
At Wideye we do not use synthetic alcohols for our scents, instead we use pure
Therapeutic essential oils. Essential oils are concentrated plant extracts that retain their natural smell, often used in aromatherapy, to support health and well-being. By doing so it enables us to capture some of our beautiful signature blends.
Such as our stunning, Summer Bliss, a floral fusion of Geranium and Jasmine.
Close your eyes and be whisked away on a romantic summers day, a picnic in a floral filled field.
