WAN-DER-LUST: noun .. Meaning: A strong, innate desire to rove or travel about.
I don’t know about you, but after a one the busiest months of the year, I’m channeling some laid back Moroccan desert vibes… And if you’re feeling like this is also the vibe for you, then ladies and gents, my mission here is accomplished. Funnily enough these images were shot in my own backyard as part of our most recent collaboration with Aerin Lauder’s latest fragrance ‘Tangier Vanille’.
With memories of my recent adventure with Aerin to Santorini still fresh in my mind… Along with a team of 11, a minivan cavalcade, and enough props to deck out a small army, we cut through a crowded beach of bikini clad tourists to set the stage for the ideal backdrop. You know, just your regular day for the Oracle Fox team and a rather entertaining day on the sand for general beach goers.
Those who know me best will tell you that I’m more than a little bit obsessed with beautiful fragrances, so when the Aerin team and I came together and discussed the fragrance notes of Madagascan Vanilla, Musk, Sandlewood and Amber, the team and I immediately thought of ways to tell a story of a traveller inspired by wanderlust.
Working alongside prop enthusiast and renowned interior stylist Kara Rosenlund was not only a dream that I’d had for a long time, but the ultimate excuse to become partners in crime on a project to make our dreams a reality. Old canvas trunks, antique textiles and platters of exotic flora, tell a story of the wanderlust traveller, intrepid in her journey as she travels between both classic and modern worlds.
And as the warm afternoon sun sets over the windswept dunes, the fragrance of Tangier Vanille fills the air, the aroma of new journeys, mystery and desert blooms… As they say, let the adventure begin.. x
