Scents for a Minimal Home

Scents for a Minimal Home

My Scented Candle range was created out of the need to provide a neutral coloured candle that was perfect to give as a gift or display in peoples homes, with beautiful, simplistic fragrances that are easy to fall in love with all at a reasonable price. They are hand poured with soy wax and a combination with a choice of 4 simple yet beautiful fragrances:

Apple Blossom & Pear – a fresh & gentle fragrance with soft fruity notes

Coconut & Musk – exotic and seductive with a musk base and notes of creamy coconut

Lychee & Monoi de Tahiti – a sparkling, effervescent, elegant fragrance with a winning accord of Lychee & Monoi de Tahiti

Tuberose, Jasmine & Mediterranean Fig – with warming notes of fig and the sensual and hypnotic scent of Tuberose and Jasmine

Happy Friday!

And what a glorious one it is too! If you’re at home stuck indoors get out! tis truly gorgeous today (mind you I can’t talk as I’m sitting at my PC indoors typing to you!), lol

So, I know it’s been awhile since I updated you with a Etsy feature, but that’s not because I haven’t had any – I just honestly haven’t had the time.

BRIDEZILLA! has been edited now, I’m just getting my Aunty Jacqui to proofread it one more time before I upload it for sale in Amazon. It needs to be formatted for use as a Kindle download as I’m hoping that I’ve done everything correctly!

Without further ado, this treasury is entitled “Summer Signs” and features my Coconut & Fig scented candle “Anniversary”.

Also, I’ve heard from the guardian of my new kittens Franklin and Sansa who will be joining my home in just a few short weeks that they are doing well and growing fast!

A song for the weekend, and my song for the Summer! Enjoy!

Hi!

I hope you had a great Bank Holiday weekend. The weather certainly could have been better!
I’m desperate for some sun and am counting down the days until I go to Las Vegas. Just under a week to go now!

Last week I had my showcase at Publicis in Central London. They invited me down to use there space to sell and promote my products to there staff. I was only there over the lunchtime period so considering I was only there for a mere 2 hours it went very well! I had alot of very good feedback, the men in particular seemed impressed with my products – it’s usually very hard to impress men with fragrant products but they asked alot of questions and complimented my packaging so I was quite flattered. Pomp & Circumstance, my Limited Edition Bulgarian Rose & Jasmine Soy Candle stole the show. It has such a depth and character to it, and it is almost impossible to pick out the individual notes as it has such complexity. Pomp & Circumstance is a very luxurious fragrance. It’s a shame I can’t upgrade this candle to part of my standard range, but my supplier of Bulgarian Rose doesn’t always have it so it has to remain Limited Edition for now. Nonetheless, Cloud Nine remained a firm favourite, I love playing the game with my clients of “guess the fragrance”, and there was one guy in particular who was brilliant at it! He could recognise some of the components, which is quite hard to do as I usually have quite a few notes and accords in my fragrances. Creme’ De La Creme’, Ambrosial Peach and Indian Mistress of the Night still seem to be a winner with both sexes. I was told that The Caspian Sea was very true to the brief: A subtle, fresh, light, aquatic scent. Lavender, With Love, I knew would be a favourite as it’s a white candle and women love Lavender!
Anniversary, the candle and the reed diffuser was hands down the most sought after fragrance of all. I anticipated that it might be so that was handy.

Publicis do regular marketing events like this at there offices for small creative businesses like mine, so hopefully I’ll get invited back in the future. I am planning to introduce a few new products to my range like body cream’s and souffle’s, salt and sugar scrubs, perfumes, bath oils and I may have an attempt at making Cold Process Soap. It’s a little more technical then M&P soap which I already make, and it takes longer to cure. I’m not so certain I have the patience to wait but we’ll see! 🙂

RoseGold 2I decided that I wanted to make a lovely sophistated floral scent with a hint of spring fruits for a candle that would be easily transferrable to use for reed diffusers and incense stick fragrances and I think that I have finally achieved that with my new candle fragrance: RoseGold.

RoseGold is a smooth and sophisticated fragrance that has a bright, sparkling, genuine innocence about it. Rose is it’s heart note and it provides a beautiful and sweet honeyed complexity and Apple Blossom gives it a deliciously flirty, fragrant, fruity scent. Some specially selected secret ingredients are included to keep it interesting.

The colours I chose to represent it’s fragrance is white and gold: White represents the fact that it is a clean, summery fragrance and Gold to represent it’s glitz and glamour. The colours looks fantastic together. A perfect springtime and summertime gift!
