Where you'll be

We'll be working out of my workshop and studio, a grade 2 listed building(History building) which we renovated and restored in 2016 and where I spend most of my time developing new scents and experimenting with different accords. It's also where we create, bottle and package our entire range of Perfumes and natural Home Fragrance; handmade candles, Reed diffuser, essential oil blends!

We came in not sure what we were going to do! But we left loving the fragrances and having smelt new and interesting smells we hadn't before. We loved being able to ask questions and finding out about some of the fragrances we encountered. Thanks Gabrielle!
