To celebrate Mothering Sunday, I’m offering a 10% discount on all container candles, including Bespoke orders on my Etsy page before Monday 11th March, just quote: SOMETHINGSPECIAL at the checkout to redeem!
As was promised here is one of the scented, sparkling creations I made. I will be offering a choice of 4 different fragrances from my range, they are highly scented to try to avoid them being burnt as really, they are meant to be mainly for display purposes. Because of the Swarovski crystals I wouldn’t advise them being burnt unless these were removed first as burning crystal I’m sure doesn’t smell all that appealing 😉
The candles will come in 4 standard colours: Peach, Light Blue, Light Pink, and White. Alternative colours and larger orders are also possible, contact me to discuss.
This weekend I was busy making swarovski encrusted scented wedding pillar candles so that I can take some pictures to put up on Etsy. Those swarovski crystals suuure are fiddly!!
I wanted to share some exciting news with you and that is that today Monday 25th February, The Secret Scent Societe’ has been handpicked to appear on an online showcase for uk creative businesses called ukhandmade. I don’t know which of my products they have chosen to promote but I feel very flattered and can’t wait to see it! The listing will go live today and you can see it here:
Reed Diffusers are a perfectly harmless and effective way of fragrancing your home and office as they contain just a handful of ingredients, the active ingredients (reeds and a special diffuser oil) serving as a unique vessel through which to carry the fragrance until it disperses into the air.
Diffusers are particularly great because they last quite awhile – up to 5 or 6 months and the only real maintenance they require is a regular turning of the reeds so that the reeds can continue to disperse the fragrance without them getting completely saturated. Also when your fragrance runs out you can reuse the bottle and just purchase more diffuser oil and reeds so it works out to be very economical indeed.
There is also no flame so you can happily leave them to scent a room without fear of setting anything alight and of course The Secret Scent Societe’ diffusers come in an array of unique, luxurious and highly fragrant scents including our new “Vintage Gardenia” with Gardenia Flower and Sandalwood and RoseGold with Rose and another secret ingredient 😉
I will keep you posted as to when they will be available for sale. Right now I’m trying to source suitable packaging!
I hope you’re wrapping up warm! It’s starting to get very cold all of a sudden! brrr!
I FINALLY received my new reed diffuser bottles and made my first one on Monday night. I made it to give as a gift so I hope they like it!
I’m still trying to decide which fragrances I’d like to make for my new reed diffusers.
Which is your favourite scent? (see fragrance descriptions below). All fragrances are available to buy in candle form from my etsy page.
Ambrosial Peach: Ambrosial Peach has a sultry mix of fresh and fragrant Peaches and another secret ingredient. This elegant, sensual and classic aroma is quiet but dangerously captivating.
Black Frost combines Tomato Leaf, a gourmand, vanillic heart of Tonka Bean, zesty Orange and other secret ingredients to create an unusual, creamy, sophisticated, and highly addictive fragrance.
3 AM has a powdery, sweet, floral fragrance and is made up of Baby Powder, a heart of Ylang Ylang, smoky Nag Champa and other secret ingredients. This is a confident, opulent, glamorous fragrance that makes an impression and really lingers.
I’m also working on 5 new fragrances: Anniversary, Vintage Gardenia, RoseGold, Lavender, With Love and Imperial Jasmine.
Also, I joined Pinterest yesterday so if you’d like to see more of what I’m working on then Pin me!
As I’m now a creative business owner myself I’m finding that I’m increasingly more aware of, inspired by and impressed by the work of other designer/makers/crafters. It’s a wonderful feeling to be able to express yourself in a creative way, and to get better over time as you hone your craft.
I salute Laduree.
Laduree, are good at cakes (or Patisserie as the snooty french like to call it). And they are PARTICULARLY good at this heavenly creation Rose St Honore that has the delicate flavour of roses, with chantilly cream on a rose iced flaky puff pastry, and raspberry compote in the middle. This is luxury and extravagence on another level.
The design: Impressive. The execution: Flawless. My addiction: HIGH.
Happy Valentines Day!
To celebrate this day of LURVE I’m offering a 5% discount on any container candle on my Etsy page!
Just add: BEMYVALENTINE at checkout: http://SecretScentSociete.etsy.com/

Happy Valentines Day! (almost!)
I hope you’ve got your romance plans in order, and if you haven’t and you’ve got a special love in your life then shame on you (wagging finger) 🙂
Sometimes I do find this Valentines day lark a wee bit contrived BUT I do think it a necessary evil, as some people’s relationships would be devoid of romance altogether if they didn’t have to pull their fingers out once in awhile. Which brings me onto my question:
What are YOUR romance plans this Valentines Day?..
I am not too keen on the cobweb infested Valentines menu’s they bring out of storage each year in restaurants so I won’t be going out on Valentines Day myself but my Beloved has promised to spoil me rotten on the weekend so I am very much looking forward to that.
I think I’ll burn my Creme’ De La Creme’ soy candle tomorrow night:
It has a hint of citrus and vanilla, and just oozes class and sophistication with the honeyed, sweet, tones of Rose Flower. It is perfect for a romantic night in.
Available to buy from my Etsy page:
I’m feeling particularly motivated today. I watched an online video from Marie Foleo from RHH for 13 steps and strategies to grow your online business. I found it helpful as my business is still in it’s early stages of it’s growth and it is constructive for me to seek out positive motivation from someone who’s doing something that I admire as it can be hard sometimes trying to stay motivated when you feel as though you should be a little more progressed then you currently are!
So in saying that, here’s my motivational quote for today. I hope it helps to keep you motivated doing what you love too! 🙂
