Open your handbag and release is “the fast beating notes of excitement as you hide waiting to be found or seek and search for a new love”. Open your purse and outcomes “the seductive music of amber” and “a scatter of jasmine petals thrown to the night”.
“Purse sprays might have dipped out of fashion recently but they are still a great way to carry a perfume around with you throughout the day so you can top up with your favorite fragrance whenever and where ever you are”, says Nigel Brooks of UKs The Bath House luxury fragrance and natural skincare brand who are Britain’s “Artisans of Natural Beauty”.
Whatever happened or is happening to purse sprays. Once, sophisticated ladies were reaching into their handbags and producing a thin vial of perfume to freshen up and top up. behind the ears and on the wrists. Bath House is one of a decreasing number of niche brands who bother about mini perfumes.
Continues Brooks: “ Our recipe is a blend of passion, nature, artistic creativity, and artisan production. Bath House began as an artistic collaboration, created from humble beginnings. The kitchen cooker was our lab and a table our design studio. We experimented with the world of fragrance and explored ways in which to harness the gentle healing power of natural ingredients. We were keen to learn from experts and began working with a small number of fragrance creators and skincare formulators who helped us with their specialist knowledge. Everything we made was packaged with care and meticulous attention to detail, teaching ourselves as we went along, always focusing on high standards.”
The company goes back to 1997. Its purse spray range features “Love Untitled” (cupuacu butter, aloe vera leaf juice, and oils of rosehip and sweet orange), “White Cedar & Pear”,
”Bamboo & Jasmine”, and “Frangipani & Grapefruit”
“We have sealed the scent and beauty of nature into artisan glass bottles, designed with a sculptor’s understanding of form and a textile artist’s eye for color and pattern. The know-how we gained at art school was meticulously applied to every stage of the process, from the initial conception to the individual hand-wrapping of the finished product.”
For a “Bath House” “Life is”….oryza rice powder, Abyssinian oil, and illipe butter and the sun on your face… your heart pounding, the summer sunshine breaking through the mist.”
