At the beginning of 2020, when the world stood still due to the Global Pandemic, they decided to turn their passion for home fragrances into a business they had spent years dreaming of. They were very excited to embark on their adventure together!
While home visits were not allowed due to government restrictions, the idea sprung to life in their back gardens. Everything from the business name to their logo was created there. They undertook candle making courses, website design and social media courses through Zoom to ensure they had the skills we needed to make their dream a reality. Once restrictions were lifted, they moved to the kitchens and that’s where the testing began. They began months of trailing numerous raw materials. Candle making is as much of a science as it is an art form. Having full time jobs and being full time Mothers to two gorgeous young boys, late nights and long weekends became the norm for them.
They are dedicated to developing an amazing product which they are proud of. They unlocked a passion they didn't even know they had! Now, they specialise in creating unique and innovative home fragrances to create beautiful aromas in your home. They launched their website in July 2020 and the business has gone from strength to strength. They outgrew their homes in November and moved into their purpose-built manufacturing facility in Ennis in December to prepare for the huge Christmas demand. As well as their own store in Ennis, there are four other locations in Clare where their products can be purchased, you can find a list of stores on the stockist section of the website. There is also stores Nationwide with stockist in Dublin and Donegal.
