St. Kitts Is The Inspiration For New Tommy Bahama Fragrance

Basseterre, St. Kitts (November 3, 2015) – Tommy Bahama, the iconic island lifestyle brand, has recently announced the launch of an exclusive new fragrance collection, Tommy Bahama St. Kitts.  Inspired by the serene beaches of St. Kitts, this new scent collection introduces two new fragrances, one each for men and women, which capture the exotic essence of this island oasis.

“It is extremely gratifying to see that St. Kitts has inspired this new fragrance collection by Tommy Bahama,” said the Hon. Lindsay F.P. Grant, Minister of Tourism, International Trade, Industry and Commerce. “For this well-known international brand that markets the upscale island lifestyle to choose our island speaks volumes about the excellent quality and nature of the experience we offer, which appeals to an affluent, experiential traveler and aligns with the profile of consumers who shop for Tommy Bahama products.”

The custom bottle design emulates Tommy Bahama‘s signature style and rich heritage with its smooth shape and calming color palette. The sleek caps provide an opulent aesthetic that encompass the essence of Tommy Bahama’s classic, cool and confident profile.

Designed by perfumers Richard Herpin and Harry Frémont, the Tommy Bahama St. Kitts collection’s fragrance notes are inspired by the beautiful sunset and salty sea breeze of the island’s scenic beaches.

  • Kitts for Men – Refreshing and relaxing at its core, a zesty blend of Kaffir Lime, juicy Mandarin and tropical Star Fruit paired with Cedarwood, fresh Sea Salt and a Watery Accord, create an invigorating woody scent reminiscent of the sea breeze. The fragrance is rounded out with Driftwood, Ambergris and creamy Musk adding a salt swept warming effect like suntanned skin after a day in the sun.

“I was inspired by the thought of spending a lazy afternoon on the beautiful island of St. Kitts, breathing in the salty air as it mingles through palm trees,” said Harry Fremont, Perfumer of St. Kitts for Men.

  • Kitts for Women – This captivating and stunning fragrance opens with a tropical cocktail of juicy Pear, mouth-watering Mango and fresh Starfruit combined with a sweet bouquet of Frangipani, Plumeria and Freesia adding breezy floralcy. A dry, yet creamy Musk, salty Driftwood and a touch of Vanilla Bean envelop the fragrance providing a solar warmth reminiscent of the beach before sundown.

“I was inspired by a beautiful sunset on St. Kitts beaches, with the smell of a fruity cocktail and plumeria blossoms floating in the air,” said Richard Herpin, Perfumer of St. Kitts for Women.

The Tommy Bahama St. Kitts collection is designed for the confident and active individual seeking to be transported to a remote island escape. Capturing the essence of sea breeze blowing through palm trees, every day will feel like a calming day at the beach with Tommy Bahama St. Kitts fragrance collection.
