My Travel Memories:
It’s no secret that the “Land of the Big White Cloud” is my personal ‘Spiritual Utopia’ and actual adopted home of my family. Auckland a vibrant cosmopolitan city with the sprawling Bay of Islands to the north, the remote Coromandel Peninsula to the east, and the rugged Waitakere Ranges to the west, has always been the gateway to this beautiful country.
So ‘Bitter/Sweet’, Sweet when you arrive “Kia Ora” (hello) but very bitter when you tearfully fly away. Visiting this country more times than anywhere else, my overwhelming memories are of friendliness, enjoyment and a natural detoxification that the Kiwi way of life provides which is simply pure magic.
A smooth, sophisticated, clean marine woody fragrance. Dominant cedar-wood, with soft herbal mossy notes alongside a hint of lily and rock rose. Finally, the base a cool, damp fern with precious cool woods evokes the soothing images of again being one with nature.
