The Leahlani Scent Glossary

The Leahlani Scent Glossary

Warm tropical breezes, ripening citrus, ocean spray, the smell of damp earth, misty rain, bouquets of jasmine and ginger – these are the fragrances of Kaua’i, which rise to greet you each time you use our products.

In most cases, the beautiful scent profiles are just a bonus – a happy consequence of the purposeful natural skincare ingredients we use in our formulations. You can literally smell the whole fruits in a jar of Meli Glow, the fresh sea scent in Mermaid Mask, the plumeria flowers in Pamplemousse, the rainforest canopy in Garden Isle, the creamy tuberose in Pua Lei... their fragrances are 100% Mother Nature.

At the same time, Leahlani would be incomplete without them. These enchanting island scents are essential in creating the experience of joy, indulgence and escape I want you to feel every time you care for your sweet skin.
