VETYVER BERGAMOT
BY INGRID STARNES

CAMPAIGN IMAGERY

We pay homage here to one of the great Pre-Raphaelite works, Ophelia by Sir John Everett Millais. We love its serene sadness, heartbreak, botanical elements and the muddy mortality.

Ophelia never meant to drown, she was overcome by grief and while picking flowers fell into the water, and lay there, singing to herself. She was described as being incapable of her own distress. It is truly sad, an image of grief, not one of intention.

Shot at Bev McConnell's magnificent garden Ayrlies, photography by Karen Inderbitzen-Waller and Delphine Avril Planqueel, hair and make-up Shirley Simpson. Model Amberley Colby. The images are a great representation of the perfume, both botanical and other-worldly.

VETYVER BERGAMOT CERAMIC CANDLES

Designers Ingrid Starnes and Simon Pound tracked down the last mould-maker from Crown Lynn, and worked with him to make a beautiful beaker with a floral relief, inspired by their perfume box print.

Based off a beaker they drink their coffee from at home, the idea was that the ceramic would have a second life as a vessel, and be collected and loved, perhaps sitting on sideboards and window sills fifty years from now.

The boxes are foiled by a fellow named Frank, who has made his retirement a mission to restore vintage presses.

The scent is earthy and smoky at first. As it burns, it’s fresh and intoxicating like the EDT.

There are four colours, sage, wash blue, alabaster and granite. Hand made, hand poured botanical wax and all natural perfume. Pretty much as special as can be.
