I’ve always had a week spot for perfumes, and I am enjoying them now, more than ever as each and every one of them smells like little vacations to beautiful destinations while staying in one place.
Cyan Nori, the latest creation by Abel Odor, a New Zealand fragrance house is one of those perfumes. It’s sweetness, salty ocean deep-sea dry down, eatable tangerine, and white peach gives this perfume its fizzing spark. Cyan Nori also contains a plant-derived macrocyclic musk that is renewable and biodegradable in the heart and let’s not forget the star ingredient Nori – seaweed grown off the coast of France in the base.
“Imagine that you’re by the ocean and a bolt of sunshine slices through the clouds… this is how I would describe Cyan Nori. Not widely used in perfumery, the quantity of Algae Absolute [Nori] in this fragrance is nothing short of an overdose. It brings the salty seascape feeling into the composition and anchors the vibrant burst of Tangerine in the top notes.” shares Abel Master Perfumer Isaac Sinclair.
Instead of a launch party, the Abel community are hitting the beaches of Wellington (the brand’s new home base) for an “Ocean Clean-up” with Sustainable Coastlines New Zealand – who will also receive 1% of Cyan Nori’s sales as part of Abel’s 1% for the planet commitment.
