Exotic and sweet!
Sands of Morocco is blended using fresh vanilla first brought to Morocco by the French in the time of the Berber Kings and incorporates aromatic sandalwood and warm oak moss with a touch of organic lemongrass oil and ylang-ylang to create a warm, rich scent drenched in sweetness.
If you're one who likes a subtle fragrance, this is not for you. However, if you're of the variety who adores being transported with one slow inhalation to lands exotic, where images of robed men and women atop camels crossing the ancient Sahara bearing spice-filled ceramic bowls laden in gold and hand-laid enamel, then Sands of Morocco is your magical elixir. With its warmth, sweet, rich character, this is a decidedly autumn/winter scent, though those of you living in cool, moderate climates yearlong may be able to indulge in this exotic aroma with more regularity.

Infusion Organique's packaging is exquisite. In fact, their beautiful bottles, containers and boxes may call to you before you even have a chance to breathe in their aromatic scents. The brand is the passionate brainchild of industry veterans Ron Chavers and Carole Vialars, brought to visual life under the astute art direction of Carole's sister, Gladys.
They are quick to point out that their products are not 100% organic (insomuchas losing even a bit of efficacy was not in their mantra), but are paraben and sulfate free and infused with organic botanicals, fruit extracts and leading-edge scent/science skincare. These scents are not quick to fade so a little dab on pulse points will linger for hours upon your skin.
Infusion Organique offers four scents currently; in addition to Sands of Morocco there are:
- Buddha's Fig - infused with certified organic fig extract, rose-geranium essence, organic lemongrass oil and blended with essences of wood and amber
- Indochine - combines kumquat (Chinese for "golden orange") with peach, water lily, jasmine, muguet and vanilla, as well as certified organic grapefruit extract and ylang-ylang essential oils
- Acai Rain - infused with tart berry accords of certified organic acai extract and sparkling organic orange oil with a blending of natural raspberry and currant, white peach, fresh greens and organic vanilla extract
