We envision a world where everybody feels their best – physically, emotionally, spiritually and psychologically. On a trip of a lifetime to India, we stumbled upon a perfume store in Rajasthan and purchased the shop’s stock of crystal glass bottles on a whim. Told of their unlikely arrival by India Post, I promised to follow my dream if they arrived safely home.

As the founder, I’ve immersed myself in the natural world studying Natural Perfumery under world renowned alchemist Mandy Aftel, Flower Essences, Cannabis Terpene Blends, Asia-Pacific Natives, Aromatherapy, Plant Shamanism, Medical Herbalism and Rongoa Maori Medicine. I also hold a Bachelor of Science in Pharmacology & Psychology and Performance Music, relevant for my early understanding of classical composition.

I’m well-travelled with over fifteen years business acumen specialising in Sales & Marketing, leading international projects. This tapestry of interests has formed the basis of a new approach to designing and sharing Natural Fragrance; Scent, Soul & Science. We’ve hosted over a thousand Club Members in three global locations and made over fifty fragrances for brands, people and places.

All of our team enrols in our in-house training programme to stay passionately abreast of international trends and techniques in fragrance, technology, art therapy and wellbeing. Not a day goes by where we don’t experiment with scent, soul science.

Thank you for being part of our scented journey.
Samantha Copland, Founder & Scent Designer

The kit itself was really lovely, quality ingredients. Unfortunately the video was just a recording of a live zoom session which perhaps could have been better packaged, even simply edited for an at home prerecorded viewing.
