Lady Marmalade



Lighter mornings make for longer breakfasts and our current obsession is our own blend of marmalade, made with organic Seville oranges, lemons from the Amalfi coast and Tunisian orange blossom. Watch this space as we’ll soon be selling it in our Bruton Street store. But if you can’t wait until then, you can still get your citrus fix from our citron olive oil, bigarade breakfast tea or Citron Citron Eau de Toilette.

Valentines Violets


We take delivery tomorrow of some beautiful Cornish Violets to sell outside the shop on Bruton Street. The flowers come from a family farm at Hayle in Cornwall. Both the North and South Coasts can be seen from the farm with views of St Micheal's Mount at Marazion to Penzance around to the point of St Ives then over to Godrevey Lighthouse and further up the north coast.

We will all be treating ourselves to a little bunch on Monday!

Come on Spring!

The last few days have seen such incredibly welcome bursts of Spring sunshine that we're desperate for those first shoots of green to appear and to smell Spring in the air finally.

In order to get ourselves ready we are busy spraying all our linens with our flower waters to make them smell of Spring flowers, using a few drops of lavender oil from the shops in water to clean down all our wood floors and surfaces and are planning a delivery of Cornish daffodils to sell outside our Bruton Street shop in March.

The hope is that we will encourage Spring into action!

Savoy Candles

We have just taken delivery in the office of some of the candles we have made exclusively for the newly re-launched Savoy Hotel in the heart of London. They smell so heavenly, rather like the Savoy itself! The fragrance is called 'Cologne 1888' and is a gentle fragrance with green notes combined with bitter orange, bergamot, Sicilian lemon, marjoram, thyme, basil and rosemary on a base of musk and amber. Available to buy from our Bruton Street and Monmouth Street shops from Friday 11th Feb.

The fragrance is also used in the products you find in all the bedrooms, even in the £10,000 per/night Royal Suite!

We also have our wonderful, much loved Citron Citron hand wash and hand lotion in the bathrooms in all the communal areas. I don't think we could be more proud or excited of this collaboration.
