The Memory: When I returned to Taiwan for the first time since relocating to New York, I was immediately greeted by the familiar and creamy scent of orange jasmine, a common plant known locally as “Seven Miles” because of its far-reaching fragrance. This evergreen shrub grows in abundance in the neighborhood where I grew up. Now, anytime I smell its iconic notes, especially on a humid evening, I am instantly transported back to my birthplace.
Named for the white, star-shaped orchid that sparked her first scent memory, Aerangis (Air-ANG-giss) began with a simple mission: to use the power of fragrance to unlock forgotten memories, and immortalize moments worth remembering.
