“Beauty when most unclothed is clothed best” – PHINEAS FLETCHER, Sicelides

For the woman who aims to exemplify natural beauty, these are words to live by.

Beauty products sourced from simple origins with only the purest ingredients are highly beneficial not only for one’s exterior needs but for the well-being of the mind, and the health of the planet.

When it comes to fragrance, the philosophy is no different. To scientists, smell is our most primitive sense, affecting our sensuous animal side, and arousing powerful feelings such as sexual attraction, hunger and emotion.

Scientists think our sense of smell is important because it can’t be switched off, and because it is processed in the same unconscious part of the brain as your memory – smell can bring back images of places in a flash.

This summer, we review Kiehl’s Aromatic Blends to bring to you four avenues of sensual pleasure that transport you to the far corners of the world. Crafted with fewer ingredients than traditional fragrances, these unique scents allow the pure notes shine through naturally.  The hard part is to pick one – which Kiehl’s fragrance are you?
