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.
