Coronado: The Crowned One

Posted on July 18, 2013 by Rachelle Crumrine

Coronado, translated in Spanish as the “crowned one”, flaunts historic monuments, a picturesque beach and harbor, and year-round activities for the tourist and local alike. Tijon Parfumerie recently announced Coronado as the winner of its countywide Signature Scent contest. Voted on an online poll, Coronado is the second fragrance in the Parfumerie’s custom San Diego line; La Jolla being the first.

 

Why did San Diego choose Coronado as the next signature scent? Well, with views of Downtown San Diego and a ferry that crosses the bay, anyone can rent a bike, segway or surrey and simply cruise down the boardwalk while stopping along outstanding waterfront restaurants. The other side of the island is home to one of the Nation’s most beautiful beaches with rich white sand and the historic Hotel Del Coronado. This famous landmark and hotel is a great place to dine, admire the antique decor, or just relax at the 4-star spa.

 

With three different scents to choose from, the public is invited to stop by Tijon (7853 Herschel Ave.) during the month of July to vote on the perfume they think should be “crowned” the signature scent of San Diego’s beautiful beach town.  There is also a drawing to win a free perfume creation experience!

Posted on June 13, 2013 by Rachelle Crumrine

 

 

In San Diego, the weather attracts tourists and locals alike to venture outside and take in the fresh summer air. Whether you enjoy the salty scent of the ocean breeze or the traditional smell of floral, San Diego has something for everyone. We’ve come up with a list of the hottest spots in San Diego to enjoy the aromas of summer.

 

 

·      La Jolla Shores Beach not only offers the salty smell of the sea, but also transforms at night into the comforting smell of burning wood and roasted marshmallows with the public bonfire pits.

·      The sweet sugary scent of cotton candy fills the air at a San Diego summer favorite: the San Diego County Fair.

·      Who doesn’t love the smell of flowers? At the San Diego Botanic Garden, there are over 20 different gardens to savor the scent of exotic flowers.

·      Nothing smells more like summer than sunscreen. Head down to Seaworld’s latest venture, Aquatica, a 32-acre water park in Chula Vista and take in the essence of sunscreen and chlorine.

 

Now, imagine bottling any of these summer smells, which can imitate the season itself, into a perfume bottle to wear this summer.
