Costamor is a new niche line from Elizabeth Wright, inspired by her memories of Costa Rica:
As a child, it felt like a magical place: waterfalls, jungles, wild sugarcane, monkeys playing in the trees, friendly people and the ever-present flurry of brilliantly–colored butterflies. She was enchanted.
As an adult and a fragrance lover, Elizabeth remembers not just the sights of Costa Rica, but the scents: the dark rich soil, the massive coconut groves, the sweet citrus trees, the lush flowers, the windswept beaches and the glossy green leaves of the rain forest.
There are four fragrances:
Beachwood ~ "Beachwood captures the uniquely beautiful stretches of protected beaches along the Costa Rican coast that are famed for their beauty, warm water and excellent surfing. Sparkling citrus, airy jasmine and cool aquatic notes are layered over a warm bed of woods, amber and musk." Additional notes include bergamot, lavender, mandarin, neroli, coconut, cedar and sandalwood.
Tabacca ~ "A sultry, feminine spin on one the prized crops of Costa Rica – tobacco...uses both the raw leaves (green, fresh and sweetened with a subtle hint of apple) and the richly aromatic dried tobacco and blends them with a deeply romantic rose tea." Additional notes include spices, apple peel, jasmine, woods and amber.
Sugarwood ~ "A soft, woody floral with a surprise twist: the sweet and strikingly fresh scent of newly cut sugar cane...Luscious fig complements the sweetness, while warm cedar evokes the woody aspect of the plant." Additional notes include bergamot, peony, jasmine, musk and iris.
Dulcess ~ "The ambrosial scent that draws a thousand butterflies. Fresh sparkling pear, sweet citrus and yummy coconut are whipped into a tropical froth with a profusion of dreamy flowers – almond blossom, cyclamen and delicate muguet." Additional notes include mandarin, vanilla bean, musk and sandalwood.
