A unique and wonderful collection of thoughtful gifts. From a peaceful afternoon, inspirational scents and gorgeous hair. Including some of our favourite local suppliers and independent brands we have found on our travels.
Haekels says scent is an adventure : their natural parfums + candles are designed to invite you to explore their location. No divisive labels or aroma chemicals just natural GPS defined aromatics to allow you the luxury of your own olfactory experience.
They are driven by trying to solve the waste problem – be that through their use of waste natural resources in our products, or presenting packaging solutions to their community that are fully recyclable or compostable.
They use seaweed as the base for all of their products. That seaweed is picked by hand in Margate, UK. Why seaweed? Seaweed hydrates; it’s rich with valuable vitamins, minerals and amino acids; it’s anti-bacterial, skin rebuilding and anti-inflammatory; it’s all-natural, and all around us. Under licence, they harvest it by hand from the beach just steps away from their shop.
They say what drives them forward is doing things differently and always evolving.
What started in Margate is now sold the world over.

THE BATH HOUSE - HOME FRAGRANCE
Discovered on a holiday to the Lake District, we love The Bath House's creative approach to creating emotive home fragrance.
A family run business; the scents are inspired by special places they have visited, landscapes imagined and moments remembered
We would recommend the following scents:
Art Studio - A fragrance memory inspired by a visit to the studio of the artist Joan Miro in Palma.
The scent of turpentine, ink and oil paint drifts in the studio as light shifts and the hours pass, tracing shadows across the canvases. There are smoky, woody notes of birch-tar and patchouli lingering in the air and an aromatic fragrance of green stems, which is layered with subtler tones of white flowers drying on the window sill.
Blacksmith - A complex fragrance inspired by the heat and fire at the heart of a local blacksmith.
This dark space is filled with fire and scent of warm amber and the woody-spicy aromas of leather and powder. Through the years, between the forge and anvil, heat, strength and a will shapes metal for the home, horse and field, as hands work with the artistry and knowledge passed from generation to generation.
