Being as our olfactory is the fastest and most direct link to our memories, one of the best ways to evoke the pleasant memories and feelings of your favourite destinations is through fragrance. Following are three examples of fragrant fruit and florals that sweetly perfume the air of the Turks & Caicos Islands, delighting visitors who often wish they could bottle it up and take it home with them.
Abundant throughout the Turks & Caicos Islands, frangipani (otherwise known as plumeria) are recognized by their fragrance, and by their waxy-looking blooms that come in variations of white and pink with centres that fade into ombre yellows. The fragrance of frangipani can be described as pleasantly sweet and fruity with a powdery-soft finish. It can be credited for that heavenly smell that visitors notice on their morning walks evening strolls. Fortunately, finding frangipani-scented home and body care products isn’t that difficult.
Decadent Caicos Encyclia Orchids
Rare and exquisite, Caicos Encyclia orchids are native and exclusive to the Turks & Caicos Islands. They thrive in uninhabited areas of Middle Caicos where they bloom for only a few weeks in late summer, releasing a fragrance that deliciously resembles vanilla beans and chocolate baking. The best way to recreate their gourmand fragrance at home is with authentic vanilla and cocoa-bean scented fragrance oils and body products.
Cuckoo for Caribbean Coconut
Few things conjure up the bliss of beach vacations better than the intoxicating smell of coconut. While coconut-infused cuisine is commonplace in Turks & Caicos, the exotic fragrance of fresh coconut that visitors encounter while vacationing is usually through the sunblocks worn by themselves and others or while leisurely sipping a Pina Colada or two.
Let the unmistakable smell of coconut inspire a feeling of the Turks & Caicos Islands from your own backyard, with coconut-fragranced suncare and body products or homemade Pina Coladas.
Infusing your self-care rituals and home with elements of the Turks & Caicos Islands can help you overcome the disappointment of not being able to visit right now while giving you something to look forward to when travel-bans are lifted.
