Fragrance: An uplifting medley of orange, neroli blossom, and apple bursts from a bright heart of black currant, red fruit, and rose petals like a worldly spirit out and about. The composition meanders onto a soulful trail of rosewood, violet leaf, and musk.

The collection: Alassis is an exquisite collection of fragrances inspired by the sophisticated early Mediterranean civilizations, cultures, and gardens. The line was created by Chesapeake Bay Candle co-founder Mei Xu in 2012. Since the early 1990s, Mei has traveled the world exploring art, culture, design and scent. During her travels, Mei fell in love with the Mediterranean region with its vast quantity of sumptuous botanical fragrances and its rich history as the cradle of fragrance of early civilizations. Since ancient times, the power of scent has been thought of as mysterious, mystical, and sacred. As Mei studied the history of fragrance, she dreamed up a new home fragrance concept, Alassis, as an homage to the role fragrance has played in the lives of people for thousands of years.
