In the CAPE ISLAND collection of eco-luxe home fragrance products, you’ll find the Clifton Beach Scented Candle – the very first scent in the range. Fondly described as “sun-warmed coconut combined with the opulence of tolu balsam and a zest of lime,” its fragrance was where it all began for this decadent brand.
And then there’s Black Gold, with its gourmand notes of aniseed, black cherry and rum which give way to the pull of lingering tobacco and rich oud. And African Storm, where the petrichor of fresh rain is unleashed through a burst of exotic baobab, jasmine and the warmth of white sandalwood. Yes, it’s about what you smell, and see, but it’s also about the stories behind each scent and the picture it paints in your imagination with each inhale.
A number of other NGOs form part of how CAPE ISLAND gives back as a brand. Each fragrance collection supports a specific non-profit initiative that speaks to the unique tribute carried by each scent.
With its deep affinity for the ocean and preserving the immaculate shoreline of this magical region, CAPE ISLAND donates a portion of its proceeds from the sale of its classic Clifton Beach Candle, to non-profit community organisations, Clean-C, which dedicates time and resources to keeping South Africa’s beaches clean.
Proceeds from the sale of Safari Days candles and linen fragrances are donated to Peace Parks Foundation, a transnational conversation initiative founded by Nelson Mandela, HRH Prince Bernhard of the Netherlands and Dr Anton Rupert. The dream of this initiative is to preserve large, functional ecosystems that transcend man-made boundaries.
In this unique way, CAPE ISLAND has made it possible for conscious consumers to contribute towards the causes they care about and bring the fragrance of Africa’s most majestic natural phenomena into their most cherished spaces. It’s luxury, but it’s also so much more.
