Say Hello to Summer Vineyard
It may be the middle of winter here in South Africa, but we won’t let that stop us throwing a dash of summer into everyone’s lives...
It’s official. Constantia Heights will soon be known as Summer Vineyard! It’s a whole new title for our beloved neroli, fig leaf and ylang ylang fragrance that pays homage to Cape Island’s origins here in the Cape winelands, but fans of the scent can rest assured that absolutely nothing in our fragrance recipe has changed. This is your official guide to the why? and exactly what product updates you can expect in the coming months.
The idea for the name change came to us in 2018 when the Cape Island brand was beginning to branch out into the northern provinces of South Africa. Many of you fell in love with the Constantia Heights fragrance, but we soon realised that the name was highly specific and difficult for South Africans at large to relate to. We set to work with some brainstorming on what to rename our lady in white. The task was to find something that would communicate the essence and inspiration of the fragrance a little better – a name who’s meaning could be appreciated by a broader audience than just a handful of capetonians.
After months of agonising over it, we finally settled on the beautifully succinct Summer Vineyard, a phrase that captures the joy this scent conveys. And now, just as the bitter orange tree blossoms in winter, our Constantia Heights products will be blooming and transforming right in front of your eyes!
so, what happens next?
Over the next few months we will be gradually transitioning to the new packaging which may be confusing at times because you could see the old name side by side with the new. It’s important for you to know that what’s inside will be 100% the same as before.
The first products to get the update and hit shelves will be our medium candle, votive candle, soaps, lotions, scented sachet and refills. Later this year our bamboo reed diffusers and large triple wick candles will follow suit. To whet your appetite here’s a little sneak peek of our brand new Summer Vineyard scented sachet…
So now you have the Summer Vineyard scoop! And straight from the source too, so you know it’s good. We hope you love the new name as much as we do!
