'Living on an island, winter walks on the beach are part of my daily activities. The cold bite of the air, the smell of low tide and salt water, and the damp fabric of my coat all add up to create an olfactory goldmine that is quite frankly unforgettable. An oceanic floral amber, Vanilla & The Sea perfectly captures the idea of a waterside stroll, complete with the metallic tang of seaweed drying on the rocks, the petrichor smell of a chill winter rain hitting the sand, the warmth of sweaters, jackets, gloves, and hats replete with a whiff of overheated skin under layers of cashmere, cotton and wool. A beautiful dream of winter.
The bluster of winter weather also brings thoughts of warm days on a beach, and for sun-seekers this fragrance does not disappoint; on the other side of this magical perfumed oil is a looking glass where I imagine a warm stroll on a Caribbean beach. Here you find the same aroma of a winter beach but now surrounded by blooming tropical flower scents of narcotic and languid tuberose, sweet, bright and zingy citrus and the smell of sun-kissed sand tinged with a dab of salt-water tide pools and a soupçon of sun tan oil.
Same content, completely different context, and therein lies the magical beauty of Vanilla And The Sea.  It contains that often elusive perfume quality that transports you to unexpected and surprising locales and discoveries by constantly morphing and shifting as you wear it.'

I see why this won an award and why it sold out. I usually don't like the suggestion of "sea" essential oil scents. They tend to take over a fragrance. Especially in my hands, I ruined once a perfume trying to capture the island where I lived and I added Choya Nakh. EEEK. Irina's creation is something else entirely, the ingredients just breezy and light where vanilla isn't necessarily light. I hope Irina will make this again. I will be pouring this on liberally. Body oil!!

heartbreakingly beautiful. other-worldly florals dance on mists of ocean air, then wrap you in a cozy veil of the most delicate vanilla. a new favorite.

A brisk walk by the oceanside, driftwood at your feet. Seaweed drying on the rocks under the warmth of sun, releasing a metallic, salty odour that's often so ambivalently compelling. Beautiful, rich, ambergris....slightly burnt lavender and salty green notes in the top, there's a juxtapose of sweetness in the lush, warm ambergris and the bitter, cold, salty green aromas. You turn your head. A waft of thick, syrupy sweet tuberose pervades your senses, its dense and narcotic and oddly warm against the colder scents that have thus far surrounded you. Like a daydream you drift in and out of the reality of the cold bitterness of the beach you walk on, and the tropical coastline laden with the honeyed florals, melded together in a melange of amber and delicate vanilla that you can smell. Deeply complex, and well worth owning!
