At the base of Slieve Donard she followed the river up to the long forgotten garden belonging to the old Lodge and stumbled upon Strawberry Trees, a botanical speciality of Ireland, growing in the wild.

Strawberry, Violet, Rose
Bergamot, Rose, Ylang
A warm hug on a cold night. The comforting atmosphere of togetherness, on the sofa, in front of a roaring fire. This warm, luxurious cinnamon scent is the perfect 'welcome home' from the cold wet rain.
Cinnamon, Vanilla Bean, Nutmeg
Lemon Grass Dew
Pottery colour: Sunshine Yellow
Embracing the dew of early mornings and late evenings, it speaks to the adventurer within her soul. Long walks on the beach and meanders through the meadows followed by fireside chats.
Time well spent focusing on wellness and creativity with the refreshing scent of lemongrass for re-energising the as yet unexplored paths.
Eucalyptus, Lemongrass, Rose
Pottery colour: Grey
The Mountains are dotted with cottages nestled beside colourful gardens. When the rain is misty and the drizzle lingers in the warm air we call it a ‘Soft Day’. This is when the fragrance of the gardens are at their most exquisite. The summer cottage garden blended with the smoke of a real turf fire perfume the gentle rain, with memories of distant past and the promise of a good tomorrow.
Incense, Jasmine, Vetivert
Pottery colour: Pale Cream
At the base of the Mountains from Carlingford Lough to Dundrum Inner Bay, the salt marshes are ablaze in summer with dense cloud-like sprays of lavender blue flowers. Sit by the shore and daydream. For sometimes, rest is the most productive thing you can do to nourish both body and soul.
Lavender, Amber, Precious Woods
Pottery colour: Midnight Blue
Treading a well worn path, her breath lingers in the misty air as the invisible becomes visible. In the darkness the fragrance of the woods and fresh flowers envelope her in a soft musk scent lighting up the path ahead, breathing life back into her hopes and dreams.
Jasmine, Iris, Fir Balsam
Pottery colour: Seaspray Blue
When the sunshine is hidden in mist but the haze shines with the promise of a gloriously sunny day, we make plans with the hope of sparkling seas and cloudless skies.
