Four Seasons Hotel New York Downtown is launching a new retail Signature Candle Collection featuring five distinctive scents – one for each season and the ever-green spa scent. Available for purchase at The Spa at Four Seasons Hotel New York Downtown, these branded candles allow guests to take home a piece of their New York experience and reminisce over the memories of their stay, long after their trip has ended and they have returned home.
Inspired by the four distinct seasons of New York, plus a fifth spa scent available year-round, the Signature Candle Collection is a direct reaction to so many guests asking about the lobby scent throughout their stay. Hotel Manager Thomas Carreras, a veteran hospitality professional with more than 19 years of tenure with Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts, is the creator and mastermind of the scent program in the lobby of the Hotel, which has featured four distinct scents year-round since the Hotel opened in September 2016. Carreras personally designed each scent and worked closely with a specialty scent partner to match each of the notes for the seasonal scents to ensure they are on-brand and reflect the character of the Hotel throughout the seasons. Each of the scents are specific to Four Seasons Hotel New York Downtown and created with the unique New York City environment in mind.
“I wanted our arrival experience to appeal to all of our senses and create long lasting memories closely connected to our emotions. New York City transforms by season, as does Four Seasons Hotel New York Downtown. There is a wonderful quote by the author Patrick Suskind – ‘He who ruled scent ruled the heart of men.’ I was inspired by this and have tried to bring it to life in our Hotel,” says Carreras.
