What’s That Smell It’s Tampa Baby
What’s That Smell? It’s Tampa Baby. So many smells in Tampa Bay, both pleasant and not-so-pleasant. Ybor City’s Seventh Avenue fills the air with the enticing scents of cigars and coffee, while Pinellas County’s beaches carry the refreshing aroma of salt water. Smoke from fireworks and cannons fill the air almost any weekend, and any time the Tampa Bay Rowdies or Buccaneers score.
Locals are no strangers to the pungent smell of red tide, which can be detected from a distance, or the damp fragrance that signals an approaching summer storm. Eww.
Now, Tampa Bay has its very own official signature scent, known as Tampa Bay Sunrise. Visit Tampa Bay, the tourism authority for Hillsborough County, believes that this fragrance can enhance the promotion of the area’s tourism.
Tampa Bay Sunrise, crafted by Air Esscentials, combines the delightful essence of afternoon tea, rose petals, and sweet vanilla. Subtle undertones of golden sandalwood, creamy amber, and a musky base note complete the composition.
But how does this fragrance truly represent Tampa Bay? According to Marc Levy, the executive vice president of Air Essentials, the musky element is derived from a subtle hint of tobacco. The golden sandalwood is reminiscent of pirates and their legendary “pirate’s gold.”
The remaining fragrances aim to evoke a sense of comfort and relaxation that can be experienced while vacationing in Tampa Bay, as explained by Corrada.
With its unique Tampa Bay Sunrise scent, the region’s captivating allure now encompasses the sense of smell, making it an unforgettable destination for all who visit. TBT
