Celebrating After the Rain

By Kira Kemlo

5 Min Read

2024 is a year of celebration at ARRAN Sense of Scotland and what better way to begin than honouring our bestselling collection After the Rain, which turns 25 this year. 

Over the past 25 years this beloved blend of lime, rose and sandalwood has settled in the hearts and minds of our customers across the world, from Arran to Australia, and remains to this day our most popular collection. 

ARRAN first opened its doors in 1989 as Arran Aromatics, with founder Janet Russell creating a skincare line inspired by the evocative scents that surrounded her on the Isle of Arran. Over the next decade, after extending the collection from soaps into body cleansers and lotions, Janet stepped into the world of fine fragrance and crafted, along with the help of our Perfumers, After the Rain Eau De Toilette. 

Behind the Blend

Transport yourself to the serenity of a summer garden on the Isle of Arran following a rain shower with our signature After the Rain fragrance. A blend of rose petals, musk and floral citrus, paired with the soft notes of Arran's woodland creates this irresistibly fresh and sensual fragrance.

"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." 
ARRAN Perfumer Notes

Forever Growing

Over the past 25 years we've seen many changes however one thing that remains a constant is our expertly crafted fragrance. The growth of After the Rain could not be possible without our wonderful customers who continue to support ARRAN and provide us with invaluable feedback which our Product Development Team take onboard to help shape our new products. Our signature scent began as fine fragrance and has since expanded to include Shower Gel, Lotions, Bath Salt and Oil and even more.
