I hope you had a wonderful weekend! Today, I’m delighted to share with you a very lovely range of home fragrances, from a company called Illumens. I was recently sent a sample of their floral-inspired Fleurs d’Eglise candle and, oh my, the fragrance is just wonderful! It features roses, jasmine, lilac and tuberose…and it’s the latter ‘ingredient’ that really, for me, makes the scent so special. Illumens have four collections, which include candles and diffusers. Fleurs d’Eglise is in their Abbaye range. This range was inspired by a visit to a 12th Century Cistercian abbey in Picardy and a lifelong love of the French countryside. As the name suggests, the fragrance is reminiscent of the still fragrant air inside a church full of flowers…
The three other collections are Rouge d’ Origine with its distinctive red flock packaging, Times and Places, and Winter.
As for a little bit of background about the company, it was founded and is run by Caroline and Russell McCleave. Based in Suffolk, Caroline and Russell develop all the collections themselves, from the initial concept, through to the fragrances and the packaging. Each range is a very personal reflection of the couple, what they love, their experiences and their creativity, translated into a series of unique fragrances. If you’d like to learn more about the company and their products, do pop over to the Illumens website. You can also find them on Facebook and Twitter.
P.S. Their candles and diffusers would make ideal ‘alternative’ Easter presents…don’t you think?
