A hot summer’s afternoon, a grove of ripe fig trees, and a nearby cascade of wild jasmine.
"There’s a rocky trail from our house to the next village, and on a hot day it’s a treat for the senses all the way. A dip in the path brings you to a shady grove of ripe fig trees, where you fall under the intoxicating spell of the whole tree – the figs, the bark, and the leaves – combining fruity, woody, and green notes, then balanced by the white flowers of a nearby wild jasmine."
If the best taste in the world is a ripe, sun-warmed fig picked straight off the tree, this must be one of the best fragrances; it’s the smell of being on holiday.
La Montaña home fragrances conjure up memories and dreams of the Mediterranean, and of holidays in the sun. They’re guaranteed not only to smell wonderful, but also to look great on the mantlepiece – each one bears its own unique label in the style of a nostalgic 1930’s travel poster.
This range of gorgeous home fragrances are inspired by the founders’ new life in a Spanish mountain village. Born-and-bred Londoners, Cassandra and Jonathan actually met and fell in love in Spain and moved in 2011 to a remote Valencian village for an adventure. They are a passionate, family-owned business and for them, La Montaña is personal, real and nostalgic.
