ABOUT US

Meet James

& Heidi

Both born in Somerset, James from the North (the posh end) & Heidi from the South (the not so posh end). We first met somewhere in the middle, I had Armani Si on, and James allured me with Viktor & Rolf Spice Bomb.

After our 9-5's, and when we're not busy working on Scentful. You might just find us sippin' on a spiced rum & coke, watching an episode of I'm A Celeb & trying to convince the kids to get to bed.

OUR STORY

How it began...

The idea for Scentful came about as over the years we realised we had spent a small fortune accumulating a large collection of designer perfumes and aftershaves. Sadly, many of which went largely unused.

Many of the fragrances we purchased were bought on the basis of first impressions. Unfortunately, we often discovered the scents reacted differently on our skin from how it originally smelt in store. Over time, once the top notes had faded and the heart and base notes became more prominent, the scents changed. Regrettably, so did the way we felt about them. Resulting in another wrong choice and unwanted purchase.

We felt there was a better way to discover and experience designer fragrances. One without having to repeatedly ask a shop assistant to unlock the cabinet for every tester, one without feeling pressured to make a purchase, and one where there wasn't 100's of other perfumes mixed in the air around you. We wanted something where you can discover fragrances in your own time, in the comfort of your own home - and that's how Scentful was born.

OUR VISION

We want to give our subscribers the chance to explore fragrances, with a little surprise at the same time. Our aim is for you to discover and fall in love with scents, maybe ones that you wouldn't have picked out to try yourself. There's a whole world of fragrances to try, and we want to surprise you each month with 2 specially chosen scents, carefully selected by us, all neatly packaged and delivered through your letter box. You'll have the whole month to get a real feel for them, see how they react to your skins chemistry and then you will know if you want to splash out on a full bottle. Or maybe you simply want to smell amazing and discover new genuine designer scents each and every month.

We are trying to make Scentful as sustainable as possible, our mailer bags are plastic free, our boxes and glass vials are recyclable. We're working on finding a suitable alternative for our foam! This ones a work in progress.

As of November 2020 we have started to support #teamtrees. Each month we will be donating to the organisation in helping them plant trees all over the world. As David Attenborough said "The best time to plant trees was 20 years ago, the 2nd best time is now".
