What? Ortigia – The luxurious range of soaps, scents, creams, candles and lotions are formulated using natural products indigenous to Sicily and inspired by the aesthetics, colours and scents of Italy’s most historic and tropical region.
Why? We all know Italians do it better, and Ortigia performs on all levels, namely product, price and packaging. The perfumes are distilled by a master perfumer and all Ortigia products are made by small family companies who pride themselves on the quality.
Who? The luxe packaging draws on exotic Sicilian images and colours. For those that love a little bit of glamour, and dream of heading off as soon as our Winter arrives, this is the one for you.
What? 19 Candles - Fragrances designed around a memory, a place or an emotion.
Why? Totally unique candles, you won’t smell anything like these anywhere (in a good way…) Steam-distilled from wild crafted botanicals sourced from around the world.
Who? For your eco friends who insist on natural oils, pure non-GMO soy wax, FSC-certified recycled packaging, natural beeswax wicks and reusable ceramic containers.
What? Barr-Co – Bath, body and home products created by a family run team who have over twenty years’ experience.
Why? Clean, fresh and simple with a focus on fantastic branding and packaging. The eau de parfum has been a winner since The Sartorialist took a liking to the packaging.
Who? For those design fans who love a good font.
