Scentiana Scent Stories

We all know the power of scent and the profound effect it can have on our mood. Scents can make us feel good, uplift us, provoke a feeling and transport us back in time. 

When we engage our olfactory senses, (did you know that there are approximately 350 different types of olfactory receptors in the nose?), a message is sent to our limbic system - the sensory part of the brain that handles emotions and memories. This is why certain scents can evoke those feelings of happiness and nostalgia. 

Every Scentiana product carries a bespoke scent story. Each has a unique aroma at its heart to transform the health of your skin, your mood and your overall sense of well-being. Let's take a look at some of the star scents ini or body care range.

Smoothing Body Scrub

Our sensuous Smoothing Body Scrub fuses together the exotic essential oils of Sandalwood, Jasmine, Vetiver and Pink Grapefruit for an uplifting and revitalising aroma. 

The woody base notes of Vetiver and Sandalwood provide undertones of a deep, creamy sweetness. They work together to enhance the citrus notes of Pink Grapefruit and the wild notes of Jasmine. Sandalwood is also known to quieten the mind and mental chatter. It reconnects us to our primordial state of being while encouraging a higher state of consciousness. 

Take a moment when you next apply Scentiana’s Smoothing Body Scrub to breathe in its scent. We hope you’ll find yourself transported to a place of warmth, comfort and happiness.

Replenishing Body Cream

Soft, smooth and deeply nourishing, our Replenishing Body Cream is divinely scented with organic essential oils which cocoon and cushion the body and senses. Blending the aromas of Indian Jasmine Grandiflorum, the earthy tones of Balsamic Sandalwood, and of the opulent scent of fresh Damascus Rose, this delicious product exudes a fresh, floral uplift that is truly hard to resist. 

Our Damascus Rose has been sourced from India, has been chosen for its calming effects on the autonomic nervous system. Indeed, research has shown that there is a noticeable decrease in cortisol levels, the sympathetic nervous system and adrenaline activity.

Rescuing Body Balm

Our Rescuing Body Balm evokes the sweet scent of warm summer nights. As this sensual balm melts into the skin, Calendula Oil extracted from marigold flowers nourishes and conditions the body. The warming base notes of Sandalwood and Jasmine add evocative depth, prompting the fresh and zesty top notes of Lemongrass and Bergamot to create a harmonious union that’s deeply satisfying to the senses.
