The name Suncrest refers to a popular peach variety grown on America’s West Coast. Many cultures across the globe revere peaches as a sign of immortality. The prominent peach note found in Suncrest captures a youth-like spirit that radiates optimism and playfulness. Suncrest is a fragrance about happiness and is expressed through fleshy pulpy fruits, notably peach, black currant and Sicilian lemon blended with solar flowers ( jasmine and lily of the valley) and a base of creamy blond woods.
The visual for Suncrest, shot by Oregon-based photographer Will Matsuda, depicts an abstract image of dense foliage in fiery reds inspired by Hanafuda cards, a nod to Will’s Japanese culture.
