The world of TUMI fragrances.......Yes, the luggage brand.
TUMI is a travel lifestyle brand founded by Charlie Clifford in 1975.
The name, TUMI, comes from Clifford’s time spent in South America while in the Peace Corps. In Peru, a Tumi is a ceremonial knife that is hung on a wall for good luck.
Beginning as TUMI Imports, Clifford began by importing leather bags from South America. Over time, TUMI has become an international travel brand known for their well made luggage, baggage, and travel accessories.
In 2020. TUMI began their foray into the world of fragrances, launching Awaken[8:00 GMT] and Unwind[20:00 GMT].
GMT stands for Greenwich Mean Time, which is the standard time of the Royal Observatory in Greenwich, London. This is where the Greenwich Median is, the invisible line that separates the Eastern and Western hemispheres.
Each TUMI scent is attuned to the Greenwich Mean Time, symbolizing the time of day during which the fragrance would be worn.
Awaken[8:00 GMT] was launched in 2020 and is a refreshing scent meant to energize and revitalize the senses. It is a great daytime scent with a fresh Grapefruit note in its opening. Sage and Cedarwood add an earthy element that creates depth while remaining lightweight.
Unwind[20:00 GMT] was launched in 2020 and is a warmer Sandalwood based scent. Lemon and Sage add a bright, yet mellow, essence, helping to relax and recalibrate the senses. It is great for cooler days and relaxing evenings.
Continuum[12:00 GMT] was launched in 2021 and is the warmest of the collection, with an Amber/Leathery essence, and a gently powdery nuance. Amber, Suede, and Musk create a warm and deep scent that celebrates adventure in life. It works well for cold weather and cool evenings.
Atlas[00:00 GMT] was launched in 2022 and is not set to any particular time, but is meant as time for oneself. It is fresh, clean, and earthy with Bergamot, Moss, Amber, and Sandalwood. It is a great scent to wear while lounging around the house, or meeting up with friends.
Kinetic[_ _:_ _ GMT] was launched in 2022 and also is not attuned to any specific time. It is a scent that embodies passion and fits a style that is both light and clean, with a depth and sweetness. Mandarin keeps things bright while Teakwood and Amber add warmth and depth, and then a hint of Vanilla rounds out the base. “Kinetic” relates to motion, and is a great scent to wear while on the go, or to fill your senses energy and excitement doing your favorite activities.
Awaken Distilled[8:00 GMT] was launched in 2023 as a more intense version of the original Awaken. While more intense, it maintains a refreshing quality. Lavender adds a nice boost to the Mandarin, and Amberwood brings the warmth and depth, with Cedarwood bringing a gentle woodiness. It is a great daytime scent that will work for any occasion.
Each bottle contains a locking mechanism that keeps the cap in place, a safety feature that keeps the traveler in mind.
Each fragrance also comes in a variety of sizes, as well as a travel set that contains both the 3.4oz and 1oz sprays, again, keeping the traveler in mind.
At this time, the TUMI range is branded as Men’s Eau de Parfum fragrances, but can be worn by anyone who enjoys them.
