"I have always had a desire to create something, to nurture it and watch it grow..."
Like many little girls, I loved creating potions in the garden with flowers, muddy water and leaves. The ritual of mixing and playing with ingredients brought me a huge sense of joy.
My interest in botanicals continued into my twenties, when I enrolled myself into a course in aromatherapy, from which I went on to work as an aromatherapist for a number of years.
The brand was imagined up nearly 12 years ago, during time spent on sick leave with a broken leg. I kept busy by experimenting with cosmetic ingredients, formulas and aromatherapy blends. I knew my knowledge as an aromatherapist and background in design could be used together to create something really special.
Having sold my new products at craft fairs, the positive feedback I received gave me confidence to approach independent gift shops. Not long later, I was opening accounts with national retailers. Formerly Miss Patisserie, the brand has grown over the past decade and matured. I'm so excited to re-launch as Patisserie Beauty in Spring 2023 and share what the team and I have been working so hard on for the past 2 years.
I will forever be thrilled that the brand is sold and enjoyed internationally; in stores such as MACYs, Barnes & Noble, Anthropologie and Ulta.
My goal now is the same as the girl in the garden - to experience joy every time I perfect a formula. I’m very lucky in loving what I do and to share the delight in beautifully considered products. More than ever, our self care time is precious. I hope you can enjoy yours, perhaps with a Patisserie product or two.
