behind the blends Donagh went to school in Australia where Asian influences are everywhere, particularly when it comes to food and fresh ingredients. The deep love of Lemongrass stems from his time there. The light, oriental sweetness balancess perfectly with the raw, earthy tones of Cedarwood.) The blend contains top notes of citrus and pineapple with a floral middle layer of lavender and eucalyptus and a woody base of patchouli and vanilla. The illustration represents that first glimpse of a Thai sunset, seen from the jungle, with a twist of Irish romanticism.

As the sweet oriental fragrance calms the mind, feel yourself sidestepping into a more peaceful slow lane. Breathe in and relax as the day’s stresses simply melt away.

behind the blends This blend is a tip of the hat to Gemma’s mother, who is the most amazing cook and keeps a stunning, hard-working herb garden. A base of flowering Lavender combined with a twist of the summer breeze as it picks up the different scents from the garden and pours them through the kitchen window. This is an Irish herb garden in full summer bloom. This illustration represents a busy Irish herb garden meets The Handmade Soap Company.

Inspired by the scent of our herb garden, this delicious blend is a real breath of fresh air. It stimulates and revives you by day before winding you down for the most peaceful sleep.

lavender rosemary thyme & mint


behind the blends As a child Donagh always had a Grapefruit for breakfast, he thought this was very exotic. In fact, he still has a grapefruit for breakfast, enough said! May Chang is a small Asian spice tree, the fruit of which gives a lovely lemony essential oil anchor to the flighty Grapefruit. This blend also contains top notes of Orange Flower with a fruity and herbaceous middle supported by a spicy oriental musky base. This illustration shows our take on a zingy grapefruit breakfast, with a butterfly to welcome the day.

Natures gift to the frazzled. Calming, restorative, stress diffusing, this soft, citrusy fragrance will lift your spirits and restore you back to sociable

grapefruit & may chang


behind the blends Most definitely our deepest blend, this is the Middle East done Irish style. The richness of Frankincense meets the refreshing, drinkability of Sweet Orange. The deep complexity of the blend is represented in its layered scents starting with Oriental, musky base notes, bringing you through herbaceous, fruity mid notes to finish with a citrus orange top. This is a strong contender for our favourite blend. This illustration is what we imagine a blooming Middle Eastern garden would look like, if it grew in Ireland!

A pep talk in a fragrance, the refreshing blend awakens the senses, and boosts energy levels back to ‘hell yeah’. A few empowering breaths and you will ping back to your lovely self.

sweet orange basil & frankincense


behind the blends This blend is a rugged mix packed with personality. Lime and Wintergreen bring a wild, outdoor charm to the Mediterranean grove garden of sweet orange and basil. The devil is in the detail with this particular blend, with top notes of lemon myrtle, citrus and orange, floral mid notes and a musky, Oriental base. The illustration is an amalgamation of two of Donagh’s favourite things, sailing and colour. Donagh really loves sailing. He once sailed from Ireland to America with his friend, in a boat they built themselves. Donagh also loves colour. These, are technicolour waves.
