Freckleface appointed as RHS licensee for home fragrance products
Family-run fragrance business Freckleface has been appointed by the Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) as an RHS licensee for products in the home fragrance category.
A substantial range of Freckleface products to be launched under the RHS brand will include candles, reed diffusers, fragrance oils, wax melts, room sprays, gift sets and more.
There will be two launch ranges. One will be a heritage range of fragranced products based on the four seasons which will feature packaging designs inspired by artwork from the RHS Lindley Collections, the world’s largest collection of botanical art – and specifically the engraver Christian Gottlieb Geissler, a renowned 18th-century copperplate engraver, painter and printmaker, specialising in natural history.
There will also be a botanical, apothecary range of fresher fragrance combinations. This range will feature ten fragrances, all encased in amber glass vessels to give a more contemporary vibe.
Freckleface was a kitchen table business started in 2017 by mum and son duo Tara and Noah Carlile-Swift, who was just 14 at the time. With Noah’s keen entrepreneurial spirit, Tara’s business acumen and a range of handmade home fragrance products, Freckleface saw rapid growth. Now six years on, with five high street stores, over 750 stockists across the UK and over 300 products all handcrafted in the company’s Lincolnshire workshop, Freckleface is thriving in the home fragrance & bath and body market. It’s also an award-winning company: Freckleface this year won the Gift of the Year Award in the Home Fragrance category for its pick and mix soya wax melts and was crowned Lincolnshire family business of the year.
All Freckleface products are vegan, and all of its ingredients are ethically and, where possible, locally sourced. The company does not use plastic in its packaging. Freckleface encourages consumers to reuse or recycle any packaging too.
RHS/Freckleface products are available to buy at stockists all over the country including department stores, gift shops, garden centres, florists, home interior shops and many more, as well as in the company’s own stores in Cambridge, Stamford, Lincoln and York, and, of course, online.
Tara Carlile-Swift, Freckleface Owner, says: “We are thrilled to be working with one of the most respected names in gardening and horticulture and we have thoroughly enjoyed creating these fragrance ranges that are all inspired by the natural world.”
Cathy Snow, Licensing Manager at RHS, adds: “As an ethical, inclusive and sustainable company with a commitment to quality products inspired by the scent of nature, with a strong emphasis on craft design and production and British-made products, Freckleface is an ideal partner for the RHS. And its fragrances smell wonderful!”
