Meet the makers: Solid Scent Co.
Solid Scent Co craft premium, great smelling, natural products that you can take anywhere.
Solid Scent Co. began when two Irish entrepreneurs and school friends (since 1994), Hayden (pictured above) and Gareth, had a vision to create fragrances that travel with you through all of life’s moments and adventures. A highly portable fragrance range, which is also kind to the planet. A true transglobal business, the brand’s two HQs are 11,000 miles apart (Hayden works from Belfast, whilst Gareth runs his side from Melbourne), but this distance has only propelled the brand further in becoming the go-to destination for practical and exquisite fragrance.
Hayden tells us, “from the outset, we have strived to create products that align to our core values. This means only creating products we would use on ourselves, so they must be natural and have no nasties. To create products that don’t negatively impact the earth, so our products are 98% plastic free, refillable and all outer packaging is recyclable”.
Working with a perfumer and using combinations of fresh, floral, spice, fruits, woods and musk ingredients they have created an exciting range of perfumes & cologne. Inspired by some of the top fragrances in the world, you can be assured that you will smell sensational when wearing one of their solid scents.
The base of the scents are made from a carefully crafted blend of Cocoa, Shea Butter, Sweet Almond Oil and Beeswax. Together these ingredients form a nourishing and protective layer on your skin when applied.
All fragrances are made from ingredients approved by IFRA (International Fragrance Association) whose standards are built around the safe use of fragrance ingredients. They are also paraben, alcohol, SLS and palm oil free.
These products make the perfect gifts for Father’s Day. Here are some of our top picks.
