Make the Season Bright

Christopher Draghi

Winter has come in. Full swing and undaunted by not having reached its official date yet. But up in the Northeast, it’s nothing to be concerned about. Our skin is a bit thicker and, after all, it means the holiday season has arrived: The merriest time of year. Snow has fallen and forest greens frame entryways and wreaths hang in wait of those making their way home.

At adage, we have been busy preparing not only seasonal decorations but changing the candles burning in our Hudson, NY store with the heartier, woodsy scents - some even new for the season!

Our popular NORTH ATLANTIC and HUDSON 314 candles and diffusers are all-stars during the winter months. Now, though, there are seasonal contenders from the new apothecary candle collection; sylva and nivalis.

Our Alaska inspired c’i’aan eau de parfum is the perfect personal scent for the season. It’s a bold, “arctic meets woodlands” fragrance with bright, coniferous notes of spruce and juniper. Cool spearmint provides the sensation of winter air with tangy apple leading the perfume towards the forest-y notes of tree resins and cedar, finishing in the warmth of amber. It’s an infectiously “happy” fragrance to wear that comforts throughout the day.

Immersed in Autumn

Autumn is in full swing with falling amber leaves blanketing sidewalks and lawns - and even faster falling temperatures. It’s a favorite time of year for those of us who revel in wearing chunky knits and cozying up in home with our favorite candles lit…

Being based in upstate New York, and makers of the finest scented candles available, source adage embraces the season with its own selection of premium, handcrafted, home fragrances inspired by autumn in the Northeast.

With rich notes of aromatic cedar wood, caramelized sap, tobacco, and a light smoke, source adage’s NORTH ATLANTIC home fragrance has been a best seller as it evokes a cozy, warm cabin in New England in the autumn. (available as a scented candle, room spray, or reed diffuser)

The brand’s HUDSON 314 scent is an ode to upstate New York’s rolling hillsides with cedar, oak, winter herbs, and ripe orchard fruit notes, with sweet, resiny amber as a nod to the trendy rivertown’s whaling history. (available as a scented candle, room spray, or reed diffuser)

New to the brand’s line up are the “apothecary candles”, hand-poured onsite in Hudson, NY using only 100% natural essential oils and waxes. Among the lineup is the sylva apothecary candle - a bold, forest-y scent of fragrant cedar, juniper berry, sage, and birch root notes. The birch root gives the scent an intense, mint-like punch (think, birch beer) that blends harmoniously into the wood and herb notes once lit. A scent reminiscent of fallen leaves at the banks of a mountain stream. (available as a 6 oz scented candle)

'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. 

Autumn Scent

The weather has turned. Summer has perhaps officially given way to the change of season. The source adage NYC NORTH ATLANTIC ambient fragrance has an autumnal, warm character with prevalent notes of cedar wood, tobacco and smoke with caramelized sap and clover honey. Add in a cable knit sweater, a glass of red wine and a lit fireplace, and you're ready for the season!

A Dramatic Coast in Maine

Christopher Draghi

The coast of Maine is renowned for its rugged, natural beauty and is most dramatic in the "off-season" as the Atlantic winds bring waves crashing upon its rocky shores. There is both solace and melancholy facing the force of the open ocean and the changing season.

Entering Southern Maine

Christopher Draghi

Traveling north along the New England coast to southern Maine where an immediate sense of raw nature takes command. The autumn comes early here and is short-lived as gusts from the Atlantic sweep into the small coastal villages where you can already smell the smoke from the newly lit fireplaces.

NORTH ATLANTIC Inspiration

Christopher Draghi

The NORTH ATLANTIC fragrance conjures images and scents of autumn in New England and the Northeast. Freshly fallen leaves moist from dew, chimney smoke in the air and the sweetness of maple honey. A fragrance as enveloping as the colors that paint the hillsides.
