Northern Escape Collection Signature Scents

Orpheus Island Lodge

Situated on a tropical island in the heart of the Great Barrier Reef, this scent is a symphony of nature’s finest elements. This fragrance is a testament to the flourishing citrus trees in the lodge’s kitchen garden, their branches heavy with vibrant, sun-kissed fruits intertwined with the delicate scent of scattered jasmine vines releasing their sweet, intoxicating scent under the starlit skies. Together, these elements create an Olfactory masterpiece that encapsulates the serene, tropical haven of Orpheus Island Lodge, inviting guests to revel in the sensory delights of this idyllic paradise.

Key notes

Citrus, Geranium, Ylang Ylang and Australian Sandalwood

Dominate ingredients
Unlike many perfumes where a single dominant note takes centre stage, Orpheus draws inspiration from nature’s symphony, orchestrating a delicate equilibrium where no single note overshadows the others. Instead, it weaves a tapestry of scents, with each note playing a vital role, creating an immersive Olfactory experience that feels complete and refined.

Unique notes
Ylang ylang’s role in the Orpheus scent is to act as a balancing agent, bringing harmony to the fragrance’s composition and helping to create a perfume that is well-rounded, sophisticated, and pleasing to the nose

Mt Mulligan Lodge

Located within the vast Australian outback on a cattle station, this scent is a reflection of the rugged beauty and unique flora of this breathtaking landscape. As the sun bathes the dry grasslands in a golden glow, and fields of wattle sway in the gentle breeze, the fragrance captures the essence of this untamed wilderness, with citrusy and earthy undertones harmonising to create a fragrance that encapsulates the elegance and natural splendour of Mt Mulligan Lodge.

Key notes

Mimosa, Eucalyptus, Lemon Myrtle, Patchouli and Sandalwood

Dominant ingredients

While lemon myrtle is dominant, it’s also versatile. It can be used as a top note for an initial burst of freshness or as a middle note to maintain a citrusy theme throughout the fragrance. Its adaptability allows perfumers to experiment with various scent compositions.

Unique notes

The dried grass scent, redolent of sun-soaked fields, is meticulously crafted by combining basil, mint, and rosemary fragrance oils, which seamlessly harmonise with the grounding woody notes of patchouli.

The south of France is the largest producer of mimosa (wattle) and renowned for the cultivation of mimosa flowers for use in perfumery, making it one of the perfume capitals of the world.

Beechmont Estate

Nestled within the serene landscapes of the Gold Coast hinterland and embraced by the lush, greenery of Lamington National Park, this scent is a tribute to the harmonious union of nature and cultivation where vibrant herbs thrive under the warm Australian sun in the estate’s kitchen garden, and rows of lavender sway in the gentle breeze.The majestic presence of the giant fig tree, with its towering branches, inspires depth and complexity in the scent whilst locally–grown herbs infuse their invigorating essence, adding an aromatic twist to the composition. The result is a fragrance that encapsulates the estate’s symbiotic relationship with its surroundings creating a sensory journey that mirrors the essence of Beechmont Estate.

Key notes

Wild Pink Fig, Crushed Sage, Verdant Greens and Cardamom, Wild and Pomelo Zest.

Dominate ingredients

Pink figs dominate this fragrance with their luscious, sweet, and slightly musky aroma. Their velvety richness and unique character often take centre stage, evoking a sense of indulgence and intrigue in the scent composition.

Unique notes

In our pursuit of crafting a fragrance that truly stands out, we’ve embraced the unique charm of pink wild figs as a central ingredient. While fig scents are not uncommon in the world of fragrances, we’ve chosen pink wild figs to create a fragrance that defies the ordinary, brings forth a subtle sweetness and provides a hint of the wild to our fragrance, setting it apart from the more common fig scents found in commercial fragrances.

The Beechmont scent also boasts a touch of French allure with a herb blend sourced from the renowned gardens of Grasse, France, adding a delightful international twist to its aroma. This fusion of Australian and French botanicals creates a fragrant journey that spans continents, taking you from the lush hinterlands of Australia to the picturesque gardens of Grasse, all in a single whiff.

Morris Nautical

“The Scent of Super Yachts,” is a luxurious voyage across open oceans, where decks glisten in the radiant embrace of sunlight with endless horizons and the unparalleled beauty of life on the water. This fragrance is a tribute to the coastal allure, blending the invigorating notes of ocean breezes with the soothing warmth of sun showers.

Key notes

Lemon, Mandarin, Peach, Aniseed, Rose, Amber and Vanilla

Dominate ingredients

The Nautical fragrance is a harmonious combination of citrus, woods, and rose to create a scent that is both invigorating and sophisticated. At its heart, the zesty and uplifting citrus evoke the fresh sea breeze whilst the grounding and robust woods add depth and strength, akin to the sturdy timbers of a grand ship. Finally, the delicate, floral grace of rose softens the composition, adding a touch of elegance and femininity. Together, these elements blend seamlessly to craft a captivating journey where the refreshing sea meets the timeless elegance of rose, all embraced by the comforting strength of woods.

Unique notes

We chose to incorporate rose into our Nautical scent to infuse it with an element of timeless elegance and femininity. While the sea is often associated with strength and power, the delicate floral notes of rose serve as a beautiful contrast, capturing the essence of a romantic sunset on the open water, where the rugged beauty of the sea meets the soft, ethereal allure of blooming roses, creating a scent that resonates with both strength and grace.

Aniseed is frequently used in perfumery to impart a warm, spicy, and slightly sweet note. Its distinctive licorice-like aroma serves as a versatile ingredient that can be a dominant note or a subtle accent, contributing to a wide range of scent compositions.

Peach, Plum, Peony, Leather, Patchouli, Vanilla and Musk

Coming Soon…Pelorus Private Island

Nestled on a secluded island on the Great Barrier Reef, this scent is a tribute to the exclusivity and natural wonders that define this luxury residence. It draws inspiration from the pristine beach, where the scent of sun-soaked sands mingles with the invigorating ocean breeze, as well as the rugged cliffs that stand as sentinels of time inviting you to escape into a world where the natural wonders of the Great Barrier Reef surround you in unparalleled luxury and tranquility.

Key notes

Peach, Plum, Peony, Leather, Patchouli, Vanilla and Musk.

Dominant ingredients

The top notes of peach, plum, and peony take centre stage in this scent, enveloping the senses in a vibrant and luscious floral-fruity bouquet that commands attention, while the base notes provide a subtle and grounding foundation to the composition.

Unique notes

The leather fragrance note is skillfully employed to enhance and complement the top notes in this fragrance composition. Its robust and earthy undertones add a sophisticated depth to the initial burst of fruity and floral notes, creating a well-rounded and balanced Olfactory experience.

Leather fragrance oil, despite its name, is not derived from actual leather but is instead a synthetic creation. Perfumers use a combination of aroma chemicals to replicate the scent of leather.
