celebration of an ecosystem

The virtues of essential oils have been celebrated since ancient times and in remote places, and used in day-to-day practices, religious celebrations and for therapeutic purposes. Over recent years, biochemists have discovered affinities between the molecular structures of certain plants and those of the human body or other animals, consolidating the idea that topical application of many essential oils fosters good health and well-being.

Aroma, produced from essential oils and extracts from native plants of the Algarve region – the Serra do Caldeirão, Barrocal and Dune System –, perfected by Lourenço Lucena for 8950, combines nutritious, medicinal and cosmetic plants: carob [Ceratónia síliqua], crimson-spot rockrose [Cistus ladanifer], myrtle [Myruts communis], sea fennel [Crithmum maritimum], rosemary [Rosmarinus officinalis] and helichrysum [Helychrysum stoechas].

Except for carob, the others are extremely well known species in Portugal. By using them to create an amenities perfume, we are offering our guests the most subtle and indelible characteristic of any place: the air of the earth.
