Take us to Melbourne. Snippets from our Travel Diary.

Saying Goodbye to Sydney and hello to Melbourne

 

We spent an action-packed week in Melbourne for the recent Reed Gift Fair. Here we share some snippets from our travel diary.

Setting up takes a team effort. We love the end result. It is very satisfying watching it come to life and the end result is well worth all the hard work.

Next step is making sure all our agents are up to date with our beautiful new releases. It is great to have everybody together as we get excited about introducing our latest creations to our wonderful customers old & new.

The best part of the gift fair is interacting with our customers. It is always exciting to finally unveil our new releases and having them well received is always very exciting for us.

We didn't plan it this way we promise! We live and breathe our brand and products, subconsciously coordinating on every level.

Of course no trip to Melbourne is complete without some nightlife fun. The gourmets among us definitely enjoyed this part of the trip.

It is great to spend time with our long-term distributors. A ten year relationship is a fantastic milestone and another thing to celebrate at the gift fair.

Another successful and enjoyable Trade Fair is done. Now all that's left is to pack up and get back to HQ and work on our next exciting new releases!

Show Dad the love this Father’s Day


 

Mentor, hero, buddy, role model, father, grandfather, stepfather. Dads come in many forms and influence our lives in many ways. With Father’s Day approaching, now is a great time to reflect on what our Dad means to us and how we will show our appreciation on the Day. We have put together some suggestions here paired with some words to inspire our love for all the dads.

 

HIS Travel Set

 

Dad is one of the first people we look up to in our life. We love the quote: “Dad... a sons first hero. A daughter’s first love.” Beautiful words that represent a dad’s early influence and lasting impression.

The HIS Travel Set is perfect for the hero dad - the one we love! Perfect for jet-setting, the gym or even camping or surf trips depending on where Dad likes to adventure.

Featuring a stylish wet pack containing a selection of travel-sized skin care essentials, ideal for the dad on the go. The HIS Travel Set contains: All in One Wash 70 ml, Shave Cream 70 gm & After Shave Balm 70 ml.

 

Equilibrium Skin Therapy Kit

 

“Father is someone you look up to no matter how tall you grow.” Great words that represent a great man in our eyes.

Dad will love the fresh citrus based fragrance of this gift set - it is sure to put an extra pep in his step! Naturally fragranced with a crisp, uplifting blend of mandarin, basil & lime essential oils, the skin pampering Equilibrium Skin Therapy Kit is a luxurious offering for total wellbeing.

Rich in vitamins, antioxidants and nutrients, this gift set is triple the goodness for the skin. Included is our hydrating hand cream, soothing hand & body lotion & organic cocoa butter soap all formulated to deeply nourish, tone & energise.

 

HIS Natural Soy Candle

 

Life is complicated and there are many types of families which is why we love these words... “Any man can be a father but it takes a special man to be a dad.”

HIS Natural Soy Candle is a great gift for dads from all walks of life. Fresh notes of citrus & juniper berry, together with spicy nutmeg and rosewood oil strike a smooth balance between rugged & sublime, masculine & mysterious.

Engineered for the modern man, this double-wick soy candle delivers a powerful, dynamic scent that exudes style & sophistication.

 

Flourish Organics Coconut Oil Soap

 

We love a bit of fun and mischief and these are the perfect words to represent that... “Don’t tell Mum - the best advice Dad ever gave me!”

Dads can be fun, lets celebrate that with and uplifting invigorating gift. With a blend of lemongrass, lemon myrtle, grapefruit & eucalyptus essential oils, the Flourish Organics Coconut Oil Soap will lift Dad's mood to bring on the good times.

Blended with an all natural formula of certified organic ingredients including coconut oil, shea* & cocoa butter* for a super rich and creamy layer of bubbles, plus skin conditioning olive fruit oil* & avocado oil* to promote soft & supple skin. Naturally fragranced using pure essential oils, this botanical soap bar will leave Dad’s skin clean, nourished & gently scented. Presented in unique fabric bag, ready to give!

 

HIS Grooming Gift

 

“The older I get, the smarter my Dad gets.” The older we get, supposedly the wiser we get. With this wisdom comes the realisation that many times even though we thought otherwise, Dad was usually right. Of course, the older Dad gets, the wiser he also gets, so chances are he will always be ahead!

Spoil the wise dad with the ultimate gift. All of Dad’s grooming needs are covered in this premium gift set filled with our aromatherapy based skincare products. Delivering fuss-free grooming, the formulations are light & clean in aroma, leaving the skin & body looking & feeling fresh.

HIS Grooming Gift contains: After Shave Balm 250 ml, All in One Wash 500 ml & Face & Body Soap 200 gm packed in Urban Rituelle gift box with gift tag.

 

HIS Shave Cream

 

Hooray for Grandad, Pop, Opa, Nonno, he of many names and bouncing knee! “Great Fathers get promoted to Grandfathers” - great and true words.

Take care of Grandad’s skin with the luxurious skin nourishing HIS Shave Cream. A rich, thick shave cream with healing aloe vera to protect from nicks & cuts & moisturising avocado oil to give a long-lasting lather. Contains allantoin to help alleviate skin irritation, soothe & provide a protective barrier for chaffed skin.

Licorice extract, known for its anti-inflammatory properties, improves skin tone & texture, while hops extract will protect skin from irritation & discomfort. Botanical extracts of ginseng, tea tree & chamomile soothe & calm razor irritation. Enriched with vegetable glycerin to soften the beard & shea butter to lubricate the skin for a clean, smooth shave.

 

Show Dad the love this Father’s Day with a treat for his skin that will leave him feeling and smelling fresh. Check out more great gifts for Dad on our curated Fathers Day page here.

Scented Offerings Launch & Behind the Scenes at our Photoshoot.

Scented Offerings launch & behind the scenes at our photoshoot
 
It is with great excitement that we give you a sneak peek into our brand new creation: Scented Offerings. After quietly, tirelessly working away on the collection for over six months, we’re thrilled to launch this unique, elegant selection of Scented Soy Candles, Fragrance Diffuser Sets and Hand Creams.
 
We are super-excited about the release of this collection for a few reasons, but mostly because the range features our stunning new-look candle and diffuser vessels, along with some delicious new fragrances.
 
Drawing on a rich blend of scents that will ignite your mood & illuminate your heart, each luxurious “Scented Offering” is a gift of optimism & a thoughtful expression of gratitude. The inspiration for the collection was drawn from our desire to create beautiful products that inspire others & give voice to our shared emotions.
 
This sentiment-based collection makes for a gorgeous gift concept as the products are not just a candle, diffuser or hand cream, but a gift of optimism & well wishes.
 
Scented Offerings is available in 6 stunning fragrances:

Believe: Passionfruit & Elderflower
Live the life you have always imagined & dream about the endless possibilities surrounded by the alluring scent of passionfruit nectar, elderflower blossoms & a splash of coconut.

 

Believe: passionfruit & elderflower. Celebrate: Vanilla & Patchouli

 

Celebrate: Vanilla & Patchouli
Celebrate with love & laughter & soak up the joy that special occasions bring with this intoxicating scent of sweet vanilla & patchouli.
 
Comfort: Sandalwood & Tangerine
Comfort your senses, calm your mind & warm your heart with the soothing scent of sandalwood & sweet tangerine.

We recently did our styled photoshoot for this new collection. Leanne our creative director teamed up with our designer Jodie, marketing coordinator Lauren and our favourite photographer, the amazingly talented Brigid Arnott to produce some stunning shots.
 
We wanted to bring a modern, homey feeling to the styling to create the story of Scented Offerings. We decided to shoot the product vignette-style, bringing in homewares elements to show how beautifully the products sit in a home setting. Little details such as each photo frame featuring imagery & colours that reflected each fragrance & sentiment really added that extra wow-factor.
 
We did some setups on light backgrounds which we think creates a beautiful light, airy & fresh feel. Others we did on a dark background which are rich and luxurious with gorgeous pops of pretty colours.

 

 

Scented Offerings photoshoot 2017

 

 
We are really happy with the results – the shots we created are all amazing and it is really difficult to pick a fave! We had to go to social media for a vote to decide which pic would grace our latest catalogue cover as it was such a tough decision! The winner was Gratitude, shot on a light background.
 
Look out on our website for the pics to show up in our header images from time to time. Don't forget to sign up for our newsletter to preview our latest collections as well as news, offers, competitions & sales where we will also use a lot of these images.
 
The photoshoot was a huge success and we have had a lot of fun creating this latest ‘Scented Offering’ for you. We are proud of the images and think they showcase our new collection beautifully!
