The Inspiration Behind the Scent: ABACO

Right before officially incorporating Malibu Apothecary, I took a trip to Treasure Cay in Abaco, Bahamas. Imagine your toes buried in white sugar-soft sand onlooking the turquoise waters that lap the shore. When the sun sets, it draws a light pink blanket forming around the clouds, powdering the sky and reflecting off of the once blue, beautiful waters. This is the Bahamas.

Redolent of balmy summer days our ABACO candle was inspired by the pink sunsets and warm, fresh feeling of summer in the Caribbean. This gender-neutral, tart, and tangy fragrance is the sun kissing your skin and enjoying the calm, stunning and refreshing sea. You can almost taste it like a juicy bite of grapefruit softened by memories of freshly cut flowers.

Transport yourself to the sugar-white sands of this beautiful beach with notes of red currant, lemon, geranium, and peach. Cure your wanderlust with a scent that will leave you begging for the beach.

If you are here, a trip to Piggyville on No Name Cay in the Abacos is a must! You can take a short boat ride there, but since Hurrican Dorian, their home was decimated. You can help out the people of Abaco and Green Turtle Cay, another islet nearby, through this GoFundMe.

Treasure Cay has some of the best strips of beach in the Abacos. We stayed at the beautiful, Bahama Beach Club in Treasure Cay. The offer excellent two to five bedroom condos right on the beach for the perfect way to slip into paradise. They have a beachside restaurant, optional housekeeping, pools, jacuzzi, lots of beach chairs and no shortage of breathtaking views.

Don't come to Treasure Cay without stopping at the Treasure Sands Club. This beachside dining boutique has some of the most incredible meals I have ever had - with unrivaled views. This sustainable Bahamian restaurant has their very own farm, Bahama Woodstar Farm (named after the endemic Bahamian hummingbird) right across the street where they offer their exquisite farm to table specialities.
