Scent of Summer

A scent can bring memories to life. It’s like breathing in precious moments and being transported to a special place. Carlie Wacker sniffs out the story behind a new summer scent.

Locals and visitors have long appreciated and bathed in the sensory delight that is Noosa. The smell of saltwater lapping the pristine white sand. Fragrant botanicals taking us on a journey through the National Park. Imagine capturing those scents in a bottle for the rest of the world to enjoy!

No longer a dream, local businesswoman and well-known photographer, Katja Anton, has captured the essence of the stunning coastal qualities of the iconic Queensland destination.

Acqua Noosa is a luxe unisex eau de parfum created using Australian native botanicals and marine elements.

“The sensual and saline marine notes of the fragrance can instantly transport you back to a moment and place no matter where you are, so everyone is able to take a special experience of this magnificent coastline into their hearts and homes giving themselves and others the gift of Noosa,” says Katja.

“Now, in these unparalleled Covid-19 times where travel has become a luxury, lovers of Noosa across Australia and overseas can do just that. So even in lockdown you can close your eyes and return to the coastal paradise whenever you wish.”

Katja is a professional photographer who made the region her home 14 years ago after leaving Europe with her young family. Her love for Australia’s natural beauty led to creating an aromatic version of the area’s best features.

“Many destinations worldwide have created their own scent and I was surprised that Noosa and other Australian locations do not have that, so it was my dream to capture and compose Acqua Noosa. People commonly say they wish they could bottle it – and I have!” she says.

The fragrance boasts light, fresh, marine and citrus herbal top notes, which open into sensual amber and musk base notes, balanced with Australian natural botanicals of sandalwood, lavender, and bush lemon. It is a fresh and playful fragrance.

Acqua Noosa is blended and bottled entirely in Australia by experienced perfumers and is vegan, plant-based, organic sugar-cane ethanol and cruelty free, without any harsh chemicals or heavy metals. Another signature facet is that the glass is imported from France for its superior quality.

“In keeping with my aim to bring the world together, the name reflects my Italian heritage, the bottles are European, and the perfume is entirely Australian!” says Katja.

Acqua Noosa has been described as a holiday in a bottle. It’s the perfect gift for lovers of Noosa or lovers that like to share a fragrance. I have sent numerous bottles as Christmas gifts to my family in Melbourne who have missed their annual holiday. For local stockists or to buy online:
