Maine perfume

A few years ago, my dad took my sister and me on a fall weekend trip to Bar Harbor, Maine. We stayed in a charming old B&B and made it our goal to eat lobster for every single meal, including lobster scrambled eggs, bisque, rolls, whole lobsters, and even a McDonald's McLobster...
Even though it rained almost the whole time, the trip was one of the best I've ever taken. So I was psyched to discover this Maine perfume. Wouldn't you love to smell its sea, air, sun, pine and grassy scent?

This summer I ventured up to Rhode Island & got to taste some of the New England lobster! DELICIOUS!!! I've never heard of the Maine perfume but I'm sure it must smell beautiful! I love the smell of the sea!! =)

Interesting...I wonder what the scent of California would smell like lol.

Megan Taylor said...

Wow! I was in Maine last weekend for a wedding and the idea of bottling it into a perfume is quite dreamy. Mount Desert Island is one of the most beautiful places on this Earth and I'm happy to hear Bar Harbor warmed your heart the way the whole state continues to warmed mine. Thanks for sharing, xo

Maine is seriously one of my favorite places on earth - I can still picture the benches near my favorite lobster shack, overlooking the water. Also, I must try their Maui perfume - I love the description!

why not, it must be great with all of that combined. There's the Paris perfume right ? (even thou' I have to say that Paris doesn't really smells like roses :) :) ).

Heather said...

That would be nice...Maine is just a lovely vacation spot...I heart lobster rolls!

The Lil Bee said...

What a great idea. You know, I think someone should make a New York perfume. We can fill it with smog, falafel, soft pretzels, and subway steam! ;)

Rose said...

I'd love to try this yes- I'm going to look it up properly.

And really is there a McLobster? even the Macs are better there!

Dee said...

How fun! I'm a Mainer and didn't know about this. Thanks for sharing!

wishful nals said...

ohhh, i need to get my hands on this! i love maine -- and bar harbor. as a east coaster, i love all that maine has to offer, including that romantic ocean breeze and scent. xo

erica said...

north atlantic by cb I Hate Perfume smells just like the ocean. i love the idea of perfumes that recall places.

i'm on a huge lobster kick right now. thankfully there's a place right near my house that makes amazing lobster sandwiches.

Wow that sounds like a great trip! I need to venture to the East Coast again... someday. Yum lobster.

Isabella Kiss said...

I bet that smells delicious! How much was it? I might hunt some down. Maine is, with out a doubt, my favorite state.

AbbieBabble said...

Maine-scented perfume? Yes, please!

Melissa Blake said...

I've always wanted to take a trip to maine!! :)

Libby said...

This blog is obsessed with Maine! As a Mainer, I wish you would write about more than Maine's oceans and lobster. I live in the mountains and it's sad that flat-landers (he-he) don't know more about the beauty of Maine besides the ocean.

JBeaudetStudios said...

I've never been there but know I would love it! I'm going to try and find this perfume! Thanks:)

13bees said...

OMG that lobster roll looks GOOD!!

fore front said...

OMG! and its inspired by my island! north haven! what a dream find!

Erika Lee Sears said...

I think Lobster cures all. :) All that is missing a lobster eating contest.

Elise said...

My husband and I honeymooned in the northeast (Maine, Nova Scotia). We spent two blissful days/nights in Bar Harbor. Thanks for igniting the memories.

A Sunday Kind Of Love said...

I know some people who would love me forever if I got this for them :)
also, now I REALLY want a lobster roll! too bad I'm living in a land-locked country...

The French said...

What a great idea...wish they could bottle the smell of college football! Whenever Fall comes, I swear I can smell Game Day:)

PoetessWug said...

That would have to be a "smell First" kind of thing! ^)^ Sometimes the sea can smell NOT so nice!...I like the idea of "fresh" though!!

Camilla Leila said...

i have ALWAYS wanted to go to maine. its been on my radar since i was little. i'm so not a west coaster.

maybe me and my man can settle there.
although he really wants to settle in europe.

not so bad either :)

Christina said...

Sounds amazing. I will have to check it out!

Lia said...

mclobster?? that is unreal!!

Ashley said...

A McLobster? Yes please!!

I would love to travel to Maine. One day!

Shannon said...

I've never been to the east coast. Looks like I know where to go if I ever to though! :P

Caroline - Red Glasses said...

LOVE Maine! Went on so many vacations there growing up because it's the state neighbouring the (Canadian) province where I grew up, New Brunswick. Bar Harbor is totally charming.

I'd be curious about the perfume!

Café Bellini said...

McLobster! hahaha and I've never heard of lobster scrambled eggs!

Emom said...

Miss Maine summers....my grandmother lived there.....smiles.

Beth said...

All I have to do to smell the piney air is open a window! Lobster roll is just a 10-min. walk away. Don't hate me 'cause I live in Maine!

Angela said...

We went to Bar Harbor this summer and it was a wonderful trip.
I'm hungry for lobster now.

I love the perfume idea of Maine, but for $110, I think I'll just rub some blueberries and pine on my wrists.

Anonymous said...

I have been searching for something exactly like this. I am from the coast of Maine, and really there is nothing like that fresh sea smell. As well, my mom and dad live just a boat ride from the perfume's island inspiration (North Haven). Yea Maine!

Hadley said...

Caitlin said...

i love that you love maine so much! our family has a cabin in boothbay harbor. it's absolute bliss!

{lovely little things} said...

Sounds like a relaxing good time, I've always wanted to drive up the New England coast to Maine in fall.

kid. said...

i think maine looks so lovely. i have been trying to convince my boyfriend to take a trip there with me some day but he is convinced that it is just freezing cold and nasty all the time.

DaShannon said...

I named my son Harbor after Bar Harbor Maine so I'll take it as a sign I should by the perfume. Of course it will have to be rotated with In the Library perfume since I'm also a book loving librarian.

Ashley Andrews said...

Bar Harbor is hands down one of the most beautiful places I've ever been to. I have family that lives downtown and my Mom lived there this entire summer so I was lucky enough to visit twice. You have to go back for sunshine.

shoegirl said...

This sounds amazing! Being landlocked since moving to Europe has been painful (I hail from coastal CA) - this would be the perfect thing to remind me of the sea. Thanks for the great find!

chiara said...

I kept on looking at the picture with the lobster and dreaming about it.
I want to go too!

I definitely wish I had the perfume, I wrote about it on my blog too! It made me smile seeing you wrote about it. Maine's such a nice get-away place, even if it is raining!

Sage Crown Parker said...

Fun! I so just ordered the sample kit. I can't wait to smell like home (Maine) and to see if there is a place that is more me, in smell.
I might have to steel steal this for my blog, it's too perfect.
Thanks for turning me onto it.
