We're excited to announce that we've recently teamed up with two amazing resorts in the Maldives to create bespoke scents for their guests.
Our goal was to help these resorts create a truly immersive and memorable experience for their visitors, and we think we accomplished just that.
First up, we created a scent called Coconut & Pink Sunsets for the luxury resort One & Only Reethi Rah. This calming blend features notes of coconut, rose, brown sugar, and vanilla bean, and was designed to transport guests back to the white sandy beaches and coconut-based cocktails that are synonymous with relaxation at the resort.
To create this scent, we started by taking the resort's scent design requirements and creating a number of samples for their team to experience and choose from. Once they pick their favourite, we enhanced it further to make sure it was just right. In addition to creating the scent, we also developed the stories for each scent.
As part of the solutions we provided for One & Only Reethi Rah, we also designed, sourced, and delivered the full packaging solution. The scent was made into a room and linen spray, available for guests to take home with them, allowing them to bring a piece of their resort experience back with them.
Next up was Island Garden, a fresh and floral scent created for Villa Haven, which is part of the newly rebranded Villa Resorts & Hotels. This scent includes notes of jasmine and creamy coconut and was inspired by the dappled sunshine and evening breezes that drift through Maldivian flower gardens.
To create this bespoke scent, we followed the same process as before, taking Villa Haven's scent design requirements and creating a number of samples for them to test. Once they pick their favourite, we enhanced it further until it was just right. For Villa Haven, a room spray in the bespoke scent was gifted to their Partners at the International Luxury Travel Market Cannes 2022.
As a Maldivian-founded brand, we have a unique perspective on authentic Maldivian scents and their links to our history and traditions. We're always looking for new opportunities to collaborate with brands, resorts, and hotels that want to differentiate themselves and offer their guests a truly unique experience. Scent has the power to bring about feelings of nostalgia and memories of past experiences, making it a valuable tool for the hospitality industry.
In addition to our work in the world of scent marketing, we're also known for our retail collection of scents and products called the Scents of Maldives. These scents are inspired by the plant life and slow island life found on the Maldivian islands and are meant to remind visitors and locals of their memories of time spent on our beautiful islands.
The products are available for purchase at various locations, including Male’, Velana International Airport, and multiple resorts. For more information about our products and stockists, be sure to browse our website. Thanks for reading!
