East Hampton courts you to walk its secret-holding dunes before sunrise, experiencing the solitude of artists and writers past, lured by the promise of a refreshing breeze of wispy green grasses, salty ocean, and a sophisticated blend of weathered woods that embody washed up cedar from the Atlantic, East Indian Sandalwood, and Indonesian Patchouli. An early August morning promises traces of white florals hidden behind stately privets that hide storied lives. An opening of citrus notes and a hint of honey-sweet pear gives brightness to this fresh, green and woody blend, inspired by time spent here during the late summer.
Atlantic White Cedar originally thrived in swampy, low-elevation wetlands, characteristic of the Hampton and Montauk areas. Before Long Island’s population boom, cedar swamps formed an almost continuous chain from Brooklyn to Montauk Point. This special cedar is typical of some historic rustic cedar shingles found on many of the waterfront homes in the Hamptons and Montauk.
