HOTEL VIBES

It was the new scent COMO that influenced the creation of this new category. It didn't even fit  the unique category because it wasn't unique.  COMO, as in Lake Como instantly transports you to well if you've read the blog post FANCY...DISCOVER THE DIFFERENCE, to fancy lifestyle.  Luxury promises you social status and is an undeniable way to be impressive.  Fancy on the other hand promises you an experience. It promises a transcendent experience that is impossible to impress anyone with. Why? Because they themselves had to have to experienced it as well.    Fancy can never be mass produced, and therefore is elusive to the masses. It's never advertised because it can't handle to be consumed my large quantities of people. It's usually stumbled upon, discovered, or a well guarded secret among friends. These hotels are really not hotels at all. However, there is no category called sublime experience that will change you soul forever. So they are called hotels.  All 5 of these hotels and others like them are to be fair in the upper 5 figure range, but it is a lot less than the latest Burkin. These five "hotels" are a must for any bucket list.  However, they are (unless you've just got it like that) a little bit of a reach.  So until you have your room key in your hand, these scents can be the next best thing.  When you watch the videos (which take a few seconds to load, but are all less than 5 minutes) you will see what inspired the curation or creation of these beautiful scents.  Enjoy!

 

 

 

 BASIL BLISS

THE FOUR SEASONS-FLORENCE, ITALY

 

BASIL BLISS scent description Actually more bliss than Basil.  The basil is there, but in the back of a symphony of green, citrus, and white floral notes that make for an elegant spa blend. If you are looking for a straight basil scent you won't like this, but if you are looking for a clean elegant head turner this is spot on.

 

BIRCH

THE CHEDI ANNDERMATT, SWITZERLAND

 

BIRCH scent description - Clean, woodsy and white just like the beautiful wood looks. This scent has a bit of crisp notes to it that lend itself to be a year round scent. It leans masculine, but will fit anywhere on the gender dance floor due to it's rich, yet subtle complexity.
