Behind the Blend: After the Rain

By Olivia Carlin

5 Min Read

Where it all began. Transport your senses to the Isle of Arran as we go behind the blend, revealing the inspiration behind our signature After the Rain scent. A delicate, timeless fusion of lime, rose and sandalwood essential oils which has inspired the hearts, minds and homes of many for over three decades. 

A delightfully tantalizing fragrance which captures the air’s aroma after a rain storm. Initial impressions yield a multiplicity of facets including greenery, herbal shrubs, sparkling lime and rose. These dance alongside the isle’s woody aura characterised by cedar wood and moss. A tranquil muskiness completes this fragrance.
