Fresh, crisp, sophisticated essential oil blend with a hint of the exotic
0.5 oz / 15 ml
Kahina’s Essaouira scent was inspired by the coastal Moroccan village of Essaouira (es-suh-weer-uh), whose whitewashed buildings are set against a perfectly blue sky and sea. Designed by the same French architect who developed the Saint-Malo port in Brittany, France, the literal translation of its name is “beautifully designed”; as Kahina’s creator, Katharine, puts it, “Essaouira is a beautiful collision of worlds, merging 18th century European design with the mysteries of Morocco.” Yet its vibe is relaxed, perhaps because its famous coastal wind keeps hordes of beach-seeking tourists away.
Don’t you want to go there right this minute? Luckily, this scent is all of that, bottled.
This roll-on applicator, perfect for travel, delivers a fresh but sophisticated mix of pure, steam-distilled essential oils blended into organic jojoba: rose, lavender, herbaceous geranium, and sandalwood provide a soft floral backdrop while petitgrain lifts and brightens it all. It’s crisp and bright, with a sensual hint of spice.
Practically tailor-made for spring and summer, but possibly our favorite scent to wear anytime. If you love Kahina’s Essaouira Body Serum but wish the scent lasted longer, this is a must-have.
