The Story of Rosemary & Bergamot

The Story of Rosemary & Bergamot

We've come a long way since we started, but one thing that hasn't changed is the popularity of our Rosemary & Bergamot! We've been reminiscing (and cringing!) about our origins today, and thought we'd share the story of our signature scent.

Back in 2003, when we weren't much more than a shed and our living room, we were approached by The Mill House, who were looking for a company to develop a range of luxury toiletries for their hotel.

At that point we were a relatively new company, making toiletries, food products and herb related crafty items - if you don't believe how much progress we've made, check out this reminder of how we started!

The team from The Mill House spent a productive morning with us exploring a variety of different scent options, and out of that session came two fragrances- Rosemary & Bergamot and Pine & Lavender (which has since been discontinued). The Rosemary & Bergamot was designed to be totally unisex, and (it has since been discovered) almost universally loved.

Initially we made soaps and hair and body wash for the hotel, but the Rosemary and Bergamot scent proved so popular that we expanded the range to 12 items (and it's continued to grow even now). It remains our most popular fragrance and is used by many local (and national!) hotels and restaurants, including Jamie Oliver's Fifteen Cornwall, Nathan Outlaw's Fish Kitchen, St Enodoc Hotel, Playboy Club London and more...

Often imitated, but never bettered, our Rosemary & Bergamot range is made using the finest ingredients and will leave you feeling refreshed and invigorated. Don't take our word for it, pop in and have a smell!
