This New Zealand designer scent company has just launched their range of soaps, hand & body lotions, hand creams, diffusers plus scented candles into the UK at Selfridges.
Eco-conscious, the brand stays as natural – but inventive – as possible when it comes to the ingredients they use to scent their wares. Think Costa Rican tuberose, mandarin peel, wild jasmine and fig leaves – all designed to transport you to some kind of paradise in your mind.
With fragrance names like ‘Parakeets and Pearls’ and ‘Bubbles and Polkadots’ there’s a playful, almost mysterious feel to the brand, too. But what’s no mystery is the quality and delicious long-lasting perfume all the products deliver that lingers on the body or in the air for ages.
I particularly like the handwashes, delicately and cleanly fragranced and definitely not drying. They’re £24, but you can also get your hands on bars of soap for £9.
And the scented candles – which they don’t call scented candles but rather ‘Waxed Perfumes’ by the way – are divine. Blocks of 100% natural wax and with an unbleached cotton wick, it’s all about the aroma.
You can buy the Ashley & Co range, from Selfridges.com
