The Cra-yon fragrance collection adds colour, energy and life to your social calendar taking the wearer to different situations and moods via scent. Continental was inspired by the global pandemic of 2020. The feeling that we are all connected, yet right now we are also feeling incredibly separated. Continental is a celebration of wanderlust. Longing to travel, yet also appreciating where we are in the moment, with lockdowns across the world. Appreciating the beauty of both travel and our immediate surroundings. While inspired by travel, Continental utilises ingredients sourced from all over the world creating a sense of the entire world embracing you without having to step foot outside of your own home. This is rich spicy, leathery woody scent that is complex yet remarkable at bringing notes together and creating a fragrant ‘hug’.

HOW IT WEARS
Continental has a gorgeous rich Leather tone to it. Creamy and full bodied, we love the way so many notes come together so seamlessly. There is a slight smoky tone, then the leather and woods create a beautiful depth on the skin. We also get the soft aromatic, slightly smoky tones of Coriander and Incense in the background of this scent.
We love the timely idea behind Continental. While yes, we are in lockdown, the beauty of fragrance is that we can travel in an instant via fragrance. The beautiful Leather aromatic tones of this scent really capture us. We can’t help conjuring the image of a well travelled and well loved old leather suitcase. We imagine an exploration, along a dusty road, suitcase in hand, the aromatic scent of the fields as our adventurer wanders carefree along, enjoying the moment and their surroundings.
