“One of a Kind” at Charles Worthington

“One of a Kind” at Charles Worthington

CW-logo-1

I was recently contacted by the marketing manager of the Charles Worthington Hair Salons in London. She had seen my products online and thought that The Secret Scent Societe’ would be a good fit for the intimate client event they were organise at their flagship store in Fitzrovia.

Charles Worthington himself was going to be opening the evening and along with myself they had also invited a personal shopper from Reiss and the celebrity make-up artist Ariane Poole who would be doing a live makeup demonstration on the night.

Charles personally going to be introducing me and I was going to be given an area where I could set up my products to sell. It wasn’t a huge area but ~I figured that as it was such an intimate event for their most loyal customers I wouldn’t need to bring that much stock with me anyway plus I had a beautiful stone mantelpiece that I could use to display my reed diffusers.

They were giving out goody bags to all of the guests so I was asked if I could contribute towards it, so I made up some Coconut & Soy wax travel Candle samples for them to include. She knew about my feature in VOGUE which she was eager for me to highlight so I designed and made some displays featuring my article. I took along with me 4 kinds of Wood Wick Candles, my Massage Candles, 3 of my Luxury Candles, Hair Perfume, Eau de Parfum and Reed Diffusers.

The evening was a very relaxed and well organised affair, with demonstrations by both Ariane, a senior hair stylist showing the newest GHD’s, and a personal shopper from Reiss, with lots of canapés and champagne! It was a fun, interesting and successful evening. People were very complimentary about my products and brand, and I made some sales (2 of which were candles that are going to be used in the lady’s summer wedding!).

I also took the opportunity to promote my new Bespoke Candle Service also, which is a service I’m now offering that includes a completely bespoke scent, and customised options (such as container type and colour choices) for candles.  That seemed to really go down very well as I had a lot of people enquiring about this service.

Afterwards, I was presented with some goody bags of my own which I was chuffed to bits with: One was a bag filled with full sized Charles Worthington products, and the other one was from Reiss: A gorgeous gold and leather wrist band.

Even though I was technically there to work, I found the whole experience very enjoyable and not at all like work. I loved talking to people to hear what they liked or didn’t like. Which were their favourite products and what they would like to see in the future. I found the whole experience really invaluable.  Plus the staff at Charles Worthington seemed to really like the products too.

I got talking to this lovely older lady, who had been going to Charles Worthington for 12 years (she did infact have very lovely hair), and after hearing that one of her favourite hair stylists wanted to get a bespoke candle made for his wedding in September, she generously offered to buy it for him as a wedding gift. Very sweet!

Here are some Pictures from the event:

Candle Massage Therapy

Candle Massage Therapy

Cloud Nine Candle

 Aromatherapy Massage Candles (also known as Body Candles) are a relatively new phenomenon and they have been gaining popularity because they can be used in 3 ways:

  1. As a nourishing Body Moisturiser, to soften and smooth the skin
  2. As an Aromatherapy Candle, providing a fresh and beautiful fragrance to your home
  3. As a luxurious quick absorbing Massage Oil to relax the body and ease the mind

Our 3 in 1 Massage Candles are handmade in our London Studio from 100% natural ingredients including a Cotton Wick, a blend of Essential Oils, Vegetable Wax and Oils.

This luxurious product not only imparts a beautiful aroma but it is also packed full of vitamins and minerals such as Coconut Oil and Grapeseed Oil that will keep your skin soft, smooth and supple.

It comes in 2 captivating fragrances:

Serenity: Chamomile & Lavender and Sensuality: Ylang Ylang & Vanilla

How to Use your Massage Candle:

After lighting the wick and waiting for the wax to melt to your desired amount, blow it out and wait for it to cool down before checking the temperature (making sure that the wax isn’t too hot) before pouring the warm wax directly onto your skin.

Our Massage Candle comes in a heavy glass container within a white milskin gift box and is available to buy online on our NOTHS page now:

New Product Photography

New Product Photography

A few weeks ago I had a photoshoot in Kilburn for my existing and up and coming products.

It was waaay overdue and I’m really glad that I done it though I had only booked a 2 hour slot and I didn’t realise until we were shooting how quickly that time goes!

I do think that it makes sense to do product photoshoots regularly (like every 6 months or so) and time it so that you’re able to incorporate any new products into your shoot also.

I will be releasing 3 new products just in time for Christmas! (Wood Wick Candles, Hair Perfume and Eau De Parfum)

Here are the fruits of my labour (or his, depending on which way you want to look at it!):

1.Reed Diffuser Transparent2.Lavender, With Love Candle

3.Body Scrub Souffle' Lemongrass & Mandarin4.First Love Perfume

 

  1. Anniversary Reed Diffuser
  2. Lavender, With Love Luxury Soy Candle
  3. Lemongrass & Mandarin Himalayan Pink Salt Body Scrub Souffle’
  4. First Love Eau De Parfum

Would love to know your thoughts on the new photography and products!
