How does one establish a memory that lasts? How does someone cultivate a memorable experience that will be comfortably burned into the brain for a lifetime? Tastes, sounds, sights, touches and smells all conspire to make experiences the wonderments that they are. So a little over a week ago I packed my bags and headed for a week long island vacation in the Caribbean in search of a memory that would last. Being the fashion maven that I'd like to think I am, of course the clothes had to be right. I'd already planned to be off of any kind of diet and had faith that the food and drinks would be sinfully and delectably right. Trading gritty concrete and black asphalt for powdery sand and teal water was sure to be a welcomed sight and provide a much more soothing touch.
A few weeks before my travel I had received this new handsomely bottled fragrance from Tommy Bahama called St. Kitts for Men. I had the idea that I wouldn't even smell the fragrance until I landed at my island destination. My hope was that experiencing Tommy Bahama St. Kitts for the first time while in this new exotic locale would leave a sweetly burned memory to keep with me even when stateside again.
The pairing was kismet. Tommy Bahama St. Kitts seemingly captures nuances of a Caribbean island through a nice balance of blended notes. The sweet scent in the humid Caribbean air came through in St. Kitts' fresh mandarin note while the warm briny ocean air was captured with the present note of sea salt. Cutting the sweet and the salty was the spicily soothing cedarwood and the musky and delightfully rare ambergris. The fragrance worked well with just a couple touches at the pulse points and was a delight to experience again when slipping on that beach tee after a fresh invigorating seaside swim.
Tommy Bahama St. Kitts for Men is a pleasant fragrance that made my trip to an island saint of another name that much more memorable. I first sprayed it on while getting ready to go out for dinner on my first night there and remember how nice, but also sexy, the sweet woody fragrance was as I pulled of my tee getting ready for bed that night. The right balance always comes together to make an experience that much more memorable. Tommy Bahama St. Kitts for Men is available now at TommyBahama.com.
