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

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.

50ml bottle

50ml bottle

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.

'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. 

HUDSON 314. A NEW FRAGRANCE

Christopher Draghi

The new "HUDSON 314" fragrance takes its inspiration from Hudson, NY and the surrounding countryside. Earthy notes of clay, rain soaked oak bark and leaves, moss and juniper, brightened by bitter sweet wild flowers and matured fruit, finishing with a lingering pale musk as a nod to Hudson's colorful history. 

Available on-line and in-store this fall.
