After completing an art foundation course, Rory studied Fashion Promotion at UCLan, which led him to a work placement in New York. It was during this time that Rory developed his passion for graphic design and branding in particular. 

Ieuan is originally from North Wales, and came to Preston to study Psychology and Nursing. Ieuan has always had a passion for fragrance, spending time researching perfumeries and their history and amassing a large collection of scented candles and cologne.  

Since getting married in 2009, we’d always discussed the possibility of starting our own business, but never found the right idea. In November 2014, we made our own reed diffusers and shower steamers at the kitchen table, and sold them at a local craft market. 

We now trade at events across the UK and supply independent shops around the North West.
