When we moved from Central Amsterdam to the South Coast of Wellington, I found myself utterly infatuated with my new ocean backyard. It was on a phone call with Isaac not long after moving, that I said “I know there’s no ‘ocean’ ingredient, but gosh I wish we could capture this incredible life force in a scent.” Isaac’s response was the trigger for the birth of Cyan Nori.
When we moved from Central Amsterdam to the South Coast of Wellington, I found myself utterly infatuated with my new ocean backyard. It was on a phone call with Isaac not long after moving, that I said “I know there’s no ‘ocean’ ingredient, but gosh I wish we could capture this incredible life force in a scent.” Isaac’s response was the trigger for the birth of Cyan Nori. “That’s such a coincidence, I literally smelt this incredible new Algae absolute today, maybe we can do something with it!’. As we were talking, the sun started to set and my ocean view lit up fluro pink and orange and our conversation turned to notes of vibrant white peach and tangerine. By the time we hang up, we were both buzzing with excitement and had a creative direction. This was just days before the world shut down early in 2020. Cyan Nori became our covid baby, and the need to bring some joy through scent, a personal mission.
She is as much an ode to the ocean as she is a powerful emotional trigger of the very best days - where salty oceanic vibes meet warm sun-drenched skin. Not long after we launched Cyan Nori a (housebound) friend messaged from London saying a spray of Cyan Nori transported her home to New Zealand’s precious rugged coastline. All the affirmation I needed.

why modern, natural fragrance
We choose natural ingredients for their olfactory beauty and therapeutic, mood-enhancing qualities. Alongside these positive reasons for choosing natural, plant-derived ingredients, there's tangible information as to why we don't use synthetic fragrance molecules derived from fossil fuels. This nonrenewable resource pollutes water and air and has links to several health concerns.LEARN MORE
