Abbaye Scented Candles and Aromatic Diffusers
This collection was inspired by a visit to a 12th Century Cistercian abbey in Picardy and by a lifelong love of the French countryside. The day was balmy, the abbey breathtaking and we ate a lunch scattered with the most beautiful edible flowers.
The delicate hand painted packaging, an illustration of ‘fumaria officinalis’ with tiny pen and ink insects is reminiscent of a Grand Tour sketchbook and was commissioned by us from a Suffolk artist. Some of the fragrances tell the history of the abbey, whilst others are just inspired by the visit to France all those years ago.
