Ayres (like Buenos Aires) is an aromatherapeutic bath and body line inspired by Argentina and created by Argentinian in America, Alejandro Rasic. The line is based on aromatherapy but I find that these products have complex scents that easily compete with more “perfumey” products.
Shower Cream in Patagonia
Patagonia’s notes include jasmine, rosemary, lavender, bergamot, ylang-ylang, oakmoss, patchouli and fir. This scent is inspired by Patagonia’s snow-caped mountains.
The scent, Patagonia, is a cool evergreen, herbal scent. I love the aroma. It’s clean and refreshing. It really does remind me of snow-caped mountains, mountain streams and evergreens.
The formula is nice. There’s a nice lather and it rinses clean. It’s not a moisturizing body wash but it isn’t drying either.
Retails for $22.
Bar Soap in Pampas Sunrise
Pampas Sunrise’s notes include lemongrass, mandarin, bergamot, patchouli, spearmint and cedar.
When the bar is unwrapped it smells like fresh citrus and lemongrass. I’ve noticed that once used it’s more of an earthy patchouli with bright citrus and lemongrass.
The formula is nice. It’s a bar soap but it isn’t too drying (my skin is dry).
Retails for $10.
Both of these scents, Patagonia and Pampas Sunrise, are unisex. I recommend them for anyone that likes natural fragrances. I like that they are both fresh yet earthy.
Other products in the Ayres line include body lotion, body polish, body butter and candles. In addition to these two scents, there’s also Midnight Tango (vanilla and orange blossom).
Beunos Aires is on my “to travel to” list because of art deco, poets and wine. I was really happy to try a brand inspired by Argentina.
