The curious case of smell

As you know, scent is a passion of mine. I will not pretend to deny the contentment and happiness a pure and beautiful fragrance brings.

On Tuesday 21st March it was National Fragrance Day. In the fragrance industry this is generally celebrated by lots of fragrance brands having promotions, giveaways and sales so never wanting to be left out I thought I’d jump on the band wagon by offering a little something of my own.

On Saturday 1st April we will be hosting our Spring Perfume Making Workshop and we are really quite excited! Located in London’s famous jewellery quarter Hatton Garden along with complimentary prosecco and freshly baked cake, we will be making perfumes with a spring theme (namely fragrances that are floral, green or citrus). It’s a course that’s popular for complete beginner perfumers and perfume connoisseurs alike.

It was originally priced at £85, which was still very good value but now it has gone down (for a limited time only I should hasten to add), at a steal of a price of a mere £40!! This is in part to celebrate National Fragrance Day and in part to celebrate Mothers Day.

So if you’re wanting to know what it would be like to be a perfumer for the day, or just if you are slightly curious as to what Neroli, Amber or Vetiver smells like, then please come and join us in this fun and interactive perfume workshop this Saturday. It promises to be both fun and informative.

Tickets are available to buy on Eventbrite or from our website.

Get your ticket now or forever hold your piece! 🙂

Our Brand New Website is Live!

Our Brand New Website is Live!

Hi!

Last weekend we exhibited at the hugely popular Myddleton Road Market. Thankfully the weather held out for us and as it was also Fathers Day people were out in their hundreds looking for crafty finds, sampling the tasty street food, socialising and watching the live entertainment.

It was wonderful meeting and talking to people, and they were very complimentary about my products and services which was very flattering. I didn’t make lots of sales but sometimes it’s the feedback that is invaluable and there is a possibility of the market going monthly so it might be in my best interests to consider being more of a permanent fixture in order to grow my client base.

My new banner looked great too, in particular because it showcased my brand new website which went live just the day before!

Here are some picture 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:

Designing a Fragrance: From imagination to creation

Designing a Fragrance: From imagination to creation

 

Perfumery is such a mysterious business, and such a niche, that it is notoriously difficult to get into it as a career. Perfumers are known mostly by reputation and usually knowledge is passed down through the generations and kept within a small amount of families.

I found this article online about the process of making perfume. It shows the process of how perfumers get from an idea or concept from their clients to an actual product.
