Top 3 Perfume Picks

Often it feels as though certain songs, places and objects remind us of specific events in our lives. Scents are also one of these triggers. Why is it that scents trigger specific memories?

Well, there is a scientific explanation for this. Scents become rooted through our olfactory bulb (which is the smell analysing centre of the brain), this area is closely connected to the emotion and memories regions of our brain. So if you happen to get a whiff of something that reminds you of perhaps your grandmother; whether it was the treats she used to bake for you or the perfume she used to wear, now you know why!

We want to ensure that you create long-lasting memories with us, which is why we are sharing our top 3 Sulis scents with you!

Sulis Scent 1: Thermae by Sulis and Thermae

Rooted in Romanic bathing complexes, ‘Thermae’ by Sulis and Thermae seeks out to soothe, refresh and revive the body and mind. Mineral-rich thermal spa water was historically used for healing and restoration. With the city of Bath being known as the site of natural springs, it was thought of as being home to the goddess of water. Our range seeks to capture the restorative power of water to have a positive effect on your physical and emotional wellbeing.

Thermae by Sulis and Thermae

  • Top notes of tangerine and saffron to reawaken the senses.

La Fumee Discovery Miller and Harris

La Fumee Arabie is inspired by the romance of the desert.

This scent contains the agarwood, otherwise known as ‘oud’. Oud has been used by generations in the Middle East and has for many fragrances, served as the base for many fragrances. Hints of spicy coriander seed and Turkish rose can be detected, followed by a warm breeze of intense cistus, woody cedar and smoky birch.

La Fumee Ottoman, an ode to Constantinople, the crossroads of East and West.

Paying tribute to a trade route along which precious resins were transported to Mediterranean ports. La Fumee Ottoman has Arabian frankincense and sweetly balsamic myrrh blend, paired with the scent of cumin and the plush velvet of deep Turkish roses. Cedar, mixed with a dense aura of vanilla.

La Fumee Intense, inspired by the entrancing ritual of burning incense and wood chips.

With a contrast of fresh French lavender with Somalian frankincense. There comes an unexpected flurry of fresh elemi which is amplified by a whisper of cardamom. A blend of cool spices, geranium and chamomile really intensify this scent.

La Fumée Alexandrie. A ballad to Alexander the Great's Mediterranean city.

A spritz carries a striking scent of rose, with playful elements of sweet mandarin and lychee, connected by an intense and spicy dash of oud. Cinnamon and cumin face off with the dryness of papyrus and creamy, powderiness of sandalwood. La Fumée Alexandrie seeks to capture the memory of a powerful and spectacular civilisation.
