With winter’s record cold temperatures, many people are dreaming about a warm, tropical island right about now. In lieu of an expensive getaway, why not transport yourself virtually with a new fragrance? Tommy Bahama, the upscale lifestyle brand, announces the launch of its newest fragrance collection, Tommy Bahama Island Life.
Peaceful escape from everyday life
Inspired by the relaxed notion of island living, this alluring new scent collection introduces two new fragrances for men and women, offering “an aromatic retreat infusing tranquility and a peaceful escape from busy everyday life.”
The unique bottle design consistent throughout the Tommy Bahama Island Life collection features beveled glass, reflecting prisms in the sunlight and creating a radiant spectrum of colors. Island Life for Him’s bottle features woven, wooden Rattan elements paying homage to the rustic, natural state of island living. Island Life for Her features an ethereal gold hammered cap, reminiscent of the sun on the water at sunset.
Designed by perfumers Frank Voelkl and Ilias Ermenidis, Tommy Bahama Island Life collection’s fragrance notes are inspired by the mystery and adventure of an island getaway.
Island Life for Him
“Captivating, fresh top notes of crisp bergamot, artemisia and inviting tarragon are complemented by geranium and nutmeg. Light earthy tones of patchouli are subtly introduced and rounded out with notes of soft cedarwood, vetiver and silky ambrox, deliver a lasting, sexy masculinity. I wanted to really capture what the Tommy Bahama brand stands for and who the man is at his essence. Journeying from freshness, into his core masculinity and underlying sensuality was how I envisioned doing this. It is a fragrance that tells the story of his lifestyle, his attitude and the laid-back, island vibe he projects on those around him,” says Ilias Ermenidis, perfumer of Island Life for Him.

Island Life for Her
“Luscious notes of juicy pear and sparkling mandarin blend playfully with the warmth of star anise for a mouth-watering top. A fresh bouquet of white rose, peony and peach blossom blooms accentuate the core of the fragrance with femininity. Vanilla bean, sandalwood and musk wrap up the scent emphasizing creamy comfort and effortless sensuality. It was important for me to create a fragrance that would feel vibrant and alive. The woman who wears it is kissed by sheer, sparkling notes that evoke happiness and the ultimate sense of comfort. I imagine it to be the only accessory she needs – an adornment that accentuates her infectious personality and effortless beauty,” says Frank Voelkl, perfumer of Island Life for Her.
