Artists & Makers

Jane Comyn & Ruth Watson



Based in Oxfordshire, we take our inspiration the renowned fragrances of Provence - a worldwide reference for Mediterranean well-being. We follow the simple philosophy of quality without compromise, style without complication. 

Originally, as dealers in French painted furniture, furnishings and lifestyle products, we scoured the markets and brocantes of France returning to the UK only when our cars became too full to sleep in! We sourced an artisanal, hand-stamped, triple-milled Marseilles soap and formed a partnership with the aim of finding other luxury products with a similar heritage. 

Over the years we have expanded into a range of elegantly packaged life style accessories, home fragrances, bath and body products seeking always the quality and authenticity which is at the heart of craftsmanship.
