[’hɑːv] Hav | Scandinavian for ‘sea’. The waters of the Arctic, North Atlantic and Baltic seas surround the Scandinavian region, forming some of the longest, wildest coastlines on earth. Scent notes: Salt spray and sea kelp, hawthorn and beach rose.
[’fjuːr] Fjord | Norwegian. Spectacular rock faces, crashing waterfalls, cascading forests, and abundant orchards magnify the drama of the West Norwegian fjords. Scent notes: Apple and pear blossom, orchard fruits and redcurrants.
[’øːʏ] OY | Norwegian for ‘island’. Hundreds of thousands of uninhabited islands glitter like stars upon the lakes and seas of Scandinavia, inviting explorers to pull up and rest a while. Scent notes: Crabapple and dog rose, water mosses and green leaves.
[’skuːg] Skog | Swedish/Norwegian for ‘forest’. Boreal forests cover over half the Scandinavian lands, stretching from the southernmost county of Sweden to the Arctic Circle. Scent notes: Pine needles and fir cones, birch sap and woodland lily of the valley.
[’ruː] Ro | Scandinavian for ‘tranquility’. Peace, calm and tranquility from the kingdoms of Norway, Sweden and Denmark. A small word with great meaning shared by all three Scandinavian languages. Scent notes: Cut grass and fallen leaves, cucumber and wild violets.
[’hygə] Hygge | Danish for ‘cosiness’. A word with no direct translation but with infinite meaning, and a reflection of the Scandinavian art of creating intimacy, fellowship and cosiness in the smallest everyday moments. Scent notes: Black tea and mint leaves, dried apples and a dusting of baked cinnamon.
[koto] Koto | Old Finnish for ‘home’. Home, hjem, hem. A sanctuary from the rugged Nordic climate, an intimate space to hibernate and refresh the soul. Scent notes: Vanilla beans and dried orange peel, Baltic amber and vintage leather furniture.
[fjælː] Fjall | Swedish for ‘highland’. In Sweden, allemansrätten gives everyone the right to roam across the entire country on the condition only footprints are left behind. The rough, exposed terrain of the north Swedish fells make for arguably the most spectacular trails. Scent notes: Heather and thyme, ground berries and leaf sap.
[’lem.pi] Lempi | Old Finnish for ‘love’. In Finland there is an old saying that goes ‘love doesn’t have to be perfect, but genuine’. The same can be said of a Nordic summer, its hopes and its treasured warmth shared. Scent notes: Peony and rose, strawberries and mosses.
[’roːsən’hæːvə] Rosehaven | Danish for ‘rose garden’. Nordic rose gardens are precious places. Only the hardiest varieties, and most careful owners, can expect their fragile fragrance blushes to survive and prosper after the long, frozen winters. Scent notes: Alba rose and elderflower, geranium and blackcurrant buds.
