Isle of Palms
COCONUT LIME VERBENA
Isle of Palms is a beautiful barrier island on the South Carolina coast near Charleston and one of our favorite vacation destinations. Originally named Hunting Island and then Long Island, it's thought to be at least 25,000 years old, and was first inhabited by the indigenous Seewee Indians. The Seewees were said to have greeted the first English settlers to the area by swimming to the ships and carrying the travelers to shore. Whatever contributions the English made to the Seewees reportedly inspired some of them to try and reach England in their canoes - all lost at sea in storms.
Legend has it that the only other occupants of the island were the pirates who buried their treasures for safekeeping in the deserted dunes and woods, although none has been found so far.
The true treasures of Isle of Palms can be found in the memories created by her pristine beaches. Conjuring those memories is this clean, fresh coconut blend with top notes of tangerine, lime, orange and lemon verbena. The heart is clean and green with herbaceous sage, coriander, petigrain, thyme and lavender. The base is a subtle white musk.
