Win: Luxe Freckleface Home Fragrance set worth £65
Freckleface Home Fragrance has brought its handmade, vegan and plastic-free candles, melts and diffusers to Cambridge's Rose Crescent - and we're celebrating with a giveaway
Walk down Cambridge’s Rose Crescent and your nose will lead you to Freckleface Home Fragrance: just opened, it’s filled with the most delicious candles, melts and diffusers.
With signature scents spanning fresh-as-a-daisy Clean Laundry and Coconut & Sea Salt through to zingy Orange, Lime & Basil and rich, musky Pomegranate Black, there’s a fragrance to suit every style, room and mood.
Starting at £1.50 for a 20-hour soya wax melt, or £12.50 for 10, prices are impressive. And, all handmade in the UK, the products are vegan and come in plastic-free packaging, meaning they’re kind to the planet as well as pocket.
The brand’s story is as compelling as its products. Founded by mum and son Tara and Noah Carlile-Swift three years ago, when Noah was just 14, it started on their kitchen table “as a hobby to harness his entrepreneurial spirit,” she explains. “He designed the logo and together we made products and the branding that we still use today.”
Still made by hand, now in Freckleface’s Lincolnshire workshop, all the fragrances are, says Tara, inspired by nature and created using ingredients sourced as closely as possible to home, to keep product miles down.
Three years on and Simon, dad of the family, also works full time in the business, which has grown to a staff of 25 and 300 stockists nationwide and three standalone stores - in Leeds, Stamford and, as of last month, Cambridge. Having just won Best Trade Stand at RHS Hampton Court, Frecklface will be showing at RHS Chelsea later in the year - when its stand will be a direct replica of the Rose Crescent shop.
“People aren't aware of the toxins that are in mass-produced paraffin wax melts so we keep our products affordable, meaning it’s never been easier to convert to ethical home fragrance,” adds Tara. “Bringing ethical wax melts and home fragrance to the High Street is our passion and we won't stop until we are on every one!”
To celebrate the opening of Cambridge’s Freckleface Home Fragrance store, we have teamed up with the brand to give away a Luxury Gift Set! Retailing at £65, it contains one large 48-hour luxury candle, one 140ml reed diffuser, four fragranced tealights and a 150ml room spray, all in a scent of your choice.
