Introducing, EAU DE PARFUM

Christopher Draghi

source adage NYC, is proud to announce the debut of the first two fragrances in their destination driven eau de parfum collection; aka'ula and c'i'aan.

The unisex fragrances follow the source adage brand ethos of creating premium, distinctive olfactory compositions inspired by great American landscapes. The intriguing scents evoke a moment in time and place, harnessing the unique characteristics of each destination through a curated selection and balance of premium ingredients. 

The seemingly enigmatic name given to each of the fragrances is derived from the native languages of the regions that inspired them. It’s an homage to both the striking regional landscapes and to the rich cultures that inhabited the lands in their most natural state. 

The result is a debut of bold eau de parfum fragrances that are unmistakably “adage”:

50ml bottle

aka’ula (red sunset in Hawaiian) is an intriguingly intense fragrance of volcanic smoke and island spice accords with spicy ginger CO2 extract, vetyver and pineapple leaves. Rich, mineral earth character is accentuated with agar wood, vanilla with rich coffee and smoke notes.

c’i’aan [key-on] (new moon in the Ahtna language of southern Alaska) is a complex fragrance of both warm woodland and fresh arctic accords with fragrant juniper CO2 extract, spearmint and apple notes balanced with a balsamic quality of fir, cedar and amber.

Summer Heat in the SOUTHWEST

Christopher Draghi

As the summer heats up its final stages before yielding to cooler temperatures of autumn, we embrace the raw beauty of the American desert. From the pale yellow foothills of greater Phoenix to the burnt orange, natural monuments of Sedona, you are transported along with the sizzling, dry breezes from stark desert to painted landscapes of red rock country. A shift in the air marks your passage from the spiced dried earth of the Sonoran hills to the sweet and herbaceous scents emanating from sagebrush river beds of the Coconino canyons. It's a dramatic transformation of color and composition, of a state of anxious solitude to a solemn spirituality. Each with its own beauty and purpose that compose this awe-inspiring region of complimentary contrasts.

Our SOUTHWEST fragrance pays homage to this unique region. The arid, kilned earth of powdery red clay and brittle, dried wood inspires the base of the fragrance where spicy notes of fennel seed, coriander and black pepper add layers of intrigue.

Fragrance of Summer

Carmel beach

There's no denying a certain sense serenity that descends upon you as you arrive in central coast California, leaving the denser populations of the Southern Californian cities and towns in the rearview mirror, with destination northward towards Big Sur, and beyond.

The maritime breezes that sweep from the boundless Pacific, across the winding PCH, shaping the rolling hills, carry with them light briny notes. They blend effortlessly with the gentile notes of the golden grasses, wild sage and magnificent wind swept cypresses that dot the dramatic coastline.

With longer daylight hours and vacation days upon us, brighter scents add to the joy that the summer season brings.  Our PACIFIC COAST fragrance is an homage to the season and the magical coastal landscape that inspired it.

'Tis the Season

Christopher Draghi

With the change of the season and longer nights, "warmer" scents are the most sought after. Smoke, wood, spice, leather and tobacco notes all offer a cozy, warm feeling. Nostalgically, they transport us to a comfortable place and time where you can imagine being curled up on a favorite leather arm chair, with glass of red wine at hand and a fire lit in the fireplace . . . Just the right escape from the cold outside.

 

source adage NYC has three scents that are particularly suited for the winter season:

NORTH ATLANTIC is a lush fragrance with a distinct smokey quality, rounded out by tobacco, leather and cedar wood notes, balanced with the sweetness of clover honey and caramelized tree sap. This is a quintessential autumn/winter fragrance that conjures up images of a hillside cabin in New England where chimney smoke fills the air at dusk.

SOUTHERN STATES, although not an obvious choice of region for winter, has its own smoky quality from birch tar essential oil among its ingredients. Birch tar and raw hide notes add earthy hues to balance out the dark fruit notes of matured apricot and Kentucky bourbon. You can imagine this fragrance as an intoxicating backdrop to an already imbibed social gathering in Savannah or New Orleans on New Year’s eve.

HUDSON 314 is our newest addition to the fragrance collection and has become a big hit since its introduction this autumn. The round, complex fragrance takes its name from our address at 314 Warren Street in Hudson, NY and its inspiration from the surrounding landscapes of the Hudson River Valley. Mature orchard fruit - pear and apple - and wildflowers offer warm and vibrant notes anchored by cedar wood and oak. A lingering musk completes the fragrance as an ode to Hudson's storied past.


All of our fragrances are available as Scented Candles and Reed Diffusers in our signature, hand-pressed black glass vessel or as 3.4oz Room Sprays.

New Luxury Fragrances Launch in Hudson, NY

For those who have never been to Hudson, NY you must not have been listening to the chatter or reading the Times' travel editorials.

Hudson is the upstate destination for Manhattanites, Brooklynites and North-Easterners, in general. Last month the first "adage" retail store opened, in conjunction with the launch of the brand's line of ambient fragrances, in the 300 block of mile-long Warren Street, historic Hudson's main commercial street. Hudson is famous for its antique dealers and curated home decor shops. The fitting setting for home scents with a captive audience of metropolitan weekenders and locals alike.  

source adage NYC at 314 Warren Street

The newly renovated building can't be missed with its "nearly black" Greek Revival facade and masculine, gray walled interior with an eclectic mix of furniture from the late 1800's to mid-century modern. Striking black and white landscape photography and low lighting come together to create an atmospheric backdrop to the reed diffuser and candle "adage" vessels made from hand-pressed black glass. 

Each fragrance gets its own station to experience a more isolated testing of the distinct fragrances. The themed vignettes, referential to the great American landscapes that inspired the fragrances, serve as a mood board to illustrate how each fragrance was originally conceived by creators/owners Christopher Draghi and Robert Dobay. The entry room of the store showcases the seasonal featured fragrance, furnished with objects and photographs that recall that region's character.

The men's lounge style space permeates a rich mixture of all the open fragrances oils and lit candles that greet you warmly at the door upon entry and linger on to the sidewalk as an open invitation to those passing who have yet to visit.
