Explore The Scents Behind The Seven Intentions
As we were crafting the Seven Intentions and their corresponding products, we wanted to use scents that did more than just smell good. We chose scents that may have certain effects, so they could help add to the feeling you get from each Intention.
Our perfumer, Irene Burtyk, wrote about her experience creating the Cerra fragrances last year, saying, “Throughout our lives, we connect fragrance to emotions and store them in the most primitive sources of our memory…Adding fragrance to Cerra experiences, yoga or other mindfulness practices is very meaningful, and I hope that everyone who tries the Cerra scents feels the natural connection I attempted to create.”
