What attracts you to a fragrance? How many scented candles have you bought because the scent transports you to a happy memory? If you're like me, it's probably dozens upon dozens of scented candles... okay, maybe more than that! But have you ever wondered how the scent is created? What was the idea behind this scent? For most people, it's not much of a thought. They go to their local grocery store or Bed Bath & Beyond and purchase their favorite scented candle without knowing the whole process behind it. So what goes into making a scent? Well, it all starts with a spark of inspiration.
Night Bloom was the scent that started it all for Lehmann Design Haus. It was the first fragrance I developed and launched. Inspiration for Night Bloom came from my nightly summer strolls through my old LA neighborhood- Miracle Mile. Starting at the end of April, blooms of jasmine and orange blossoms would fill the night air every year. One night when I was walking home (probably from a night out with friends), the elegant aroma of my neighborhood inspired me- jasmine, orange blossom, and dewy sage. I'm naturally a fast walker (my legs are so long), but this fragrance would slow me down. I wanted to absorb every last aromatic droplet.
When I started my passion project that eventually became Lehmann Design Haus, I used wholesale fragrance oils made by other companies. I quickly grew bored of these fragrances because they weren't unique enough. I wanted to start making my own, but I had no clue where to begin. After months of trial and error and even taking classes, I finally figured out a composition that met my expectations, and Night Bloom was born. All from being inspired on a walk.
To me, Night Bloom is symbolic of new beginnings and discovery. This fragrance is an eloquent floral that is simple yet beautiful.
I'm so excited for you to experience Night Bloom if you haven't already. And if you have, you might also like Maiglockchen and Jasmine + Minze.
