None of the nasties
For us, this is the easy part. We take some of the most striking natural landscapes and habitats in the British Isles, chosen not just for their beauty, but also their value to our biodiversity. We want our fragrances to not only be attractive and smell wonderful, but to also serve a more important goal – to raise awareness of the need to protect and enhance biodiversity in these iconic yet threatened landscapes.
Then, we conduct extensive research into the types of plants that grow in the different habitats, identifying those that can produce ingredients (usually essential oils) for use in our natural perfume.
After that, we work closely with a British master perfumer to come up with a brief for the perfumes, utilising his expertise and skill along with key ingredients from our research to create captivating natural fragrances to encapsulate the landscapes that inspired us. We strive to get to 100% natural perfumes, but we use a small amount of lab-produced ingredients to provide our fragrances with a lasting and well-rounded scent profile.
Next comes the fun but lengthy process of smelling, testing, receiving consumer feedback and refining sample perfumes with the perfumer until we finally have our products – not forgetting the vital final safety tests to ensure our fragrances are compliant with IFRA standards.
We spend a considerable amount of time researching and sourcing our packaging materials to fit with our environmentally responsible ethos. This is not as straightforward as it should be, but we are delighted with the results so far. Our bottles have screw-necks so can be refilled and re-used (we hope to introduce refills soon), recycled or re-purposed; our boxes and wood wool filling are made from FSC sourced wood. The boxes are intended for re-use – we’d love to see how you re-use yours!
