Ready to answer that call? We thought so. Let’s take a sneaky peek at the hottest trends for summer 2022:

fun & functional.

Summer 2022 is all about function. Customers are becoming wayyy more mindful of what they’re putting on & in their bodies and in their homes. Can ya blame ‘em? With so much ick out in the world, it’s high time we all focused on the cleaner, healthier and more sustainable - ya feel? That means healthier ingredients with functional benefits! Yay!

Essential oils and functional fragrance are the perfect way of makin’ your product line more fun-ctional. They are a magical addition to candles, body or skin care products to promote some kind of feelin’.

Essential Oil Blend + Cheer

Catchin’ a vibe doesn’t have to be hard. We got you:

loud & proud.

Gentle & nuanced is soooo last season. ;) Things are takin’ a 180-degree turn (that’s hot) and gettin’ brighter & bolder. Ow owww! Think delicious summer fruits, florals and lush greens with a punchy pop of citrus. Yes please!

Fragrance Rosewater + Hibiscus

hello, hibiscus.

You’ll be seein’ quite a few floral profiles throughout summer 2022, and hibiscus is one of ‘em! Bright & flirty florals like hibiscus and more mainstream scents like rose,  lavender and elderflower have really helped broaden the fragrance palette to include much more botanical profiles. Yep, that’s right. Say hey to hibiscus & go get funky with florals, friends!

Yuzu Blossoms + Hinoki Fragrance

say yes to yuzu!

Summer 2022, meet your new best pal: yuzu! This less-known citrus fruit that can be found in countries like Japan, Korea & China is steppin’ into the spotlight with its bright freshness! Mmmm. Yuzu’s tart & tangy, and its subtle notes that border on lime, lemon AND grapefruit will have it packin’ a real punch in the fragrance world. Heck ya!

Allure Double Glass Vessels
