Childhood scents and special memories
Lion & Rose’s scent combinations come together to make melodious-smelling perfection for your bath and beauty routine. Behind every pairing lies a unique story filled with memories from my life. This week I will share the story that inspired the creation of the Eucalyptus and Orange combination that is used in both my best-selling soap and natural deodorant.
What inspired this scent combo?
The Eucalyptus and Orange scent combo was inspired from childhood memories of growing up in Southern California. The abundance of eucalyptus trees often lined highways, and could be smelled on long family drives. The scent of the leaves was so strong and intoxicating and brings me back to a time when life was carefree. Days were spent at the beach with friends and family, followed by a trip to the local Thrifties to buy a 25 cent ice cream cone (yes, that’s right)!
Orange groves were also abundant near my childhood home. There were rows and rows of trees filled with fresh juicy oranges, just waiting to be picked and enjoyed. These groves have since been replaced by a private Catholic school.
The combo of these 2 childhood scents married to become one of my favorite combos ever. The sharp, green scent of the eucalyptus is gently blended with the sweet juiciness of the orange to create the perfect California blend.
I have now lived in Oregon for over half my life (I am an Oregonian, right?), but childhood scents hold a special place in my heart, and I am thrilled to provide a luxurious handmade soap and 100% natural deodorant that have this special scent combination.
What are your favorite childhood scent memories? I might just feel inspired enough to make a new soap!
