The Greek island of Santorini is one of the most picturesque and idyllic destinations in the world. With its stunning blue sea and sky, beautiful landscapes, and citrusy aromas, it's no wonder that it has inspired countless artists, writers, and designers. But for Michael Perris and Gregory Cole, the co-founders of The Bubble Collection, Santorini was more than just a beautiful vacation spot. It was the inspiration behind their now-successful niche fragrance brand.
The story of The Bubble Collection began when Perris and Cole returned from a trip to Santorini. While unpacking, they noticed that all of their linen clothes still smelled like the island, a mix of salty air and citrus that was both refreshing and invigorating. They were instantly transported into their "Santorini bubble." The scent was so captivating that they knew they had to bottle it up and share it with the world.
Perris and Cole began working on the concept for their new fragrance brand - The Bubble Collection. Drawing on their experience as creatives for some of the world's top designer fragrances, including Tom Ford, Ralph Lauren, Michael Kors, and Marc Jacobs, they set out to create a line of fragrances that would capture the essence of their favorite destinations around the world. Their first stop was at MANE Flavours and Fragrances, one of the leading fragrance manufacturers based in Grasse, France and their dream became a reality.
Their first unisex fragrance, the citrus, aquatic Santorini Wander Bubble, was designed by MANE's Master Perfumer Vincent Kuczinski, President of the American Society of Perfumers. It features a complex blend of notes that are meant to evoke the salty sea air and citrusy aromas of Santorini. The top notes include blue sea, blue sky, bergamot, mandarin, and pink pepper, while the mid notes feature pear, jasmine, cedarwood, bigaflower, and orange blossom. The fragrance is rounded out by musk, vetiver, sea moss, and warm amber in the drydown.
Since launching Santorini Wander Bubble, The Bubble Collection has expanded to include fragrances inspired by other destinations, including Marrakech and Reykjavik. Each fragrance is designed to capture the unique essence of its namesake location, making it easy for consumers to experience a little bit of luxury and escape in their everyday lives.
What sets The Bubble Collection apart from other fragrance brands is its focus on niche, high-quality scents that are designed to transport the wearer to a specific place and time. By drawing on their extensive experience in the areas of luxury, designer fashion and beauty, and their love of travel, Perris and Cole have created a brand that is both unique and aspirational. They are also committed to using responsibly sourced ingredients for all of The Bubble Collection scents. Their fragrances are unisex, vegan, clean, and certified cruelty-free by PETA and Leaping Bunny. The Bubble Collection is also a certified LGBT enterprise by the National Gay and Lesbian Chamber of Commerce (NGLCC).
If you're looking for a fragrance that will take you on a journey, The Bubble Collection is definitely worth checking out. With its luxurious scents and high-quality ingredients, it's no wonder that it's quickly become a favorite among fragrance aficionados and beauty enthusiasts alike.
