From her college summers in America, our sister Orla, brought her love of fragrances, simple elegance and artisan candles home. Exchanging workshifts for hands-on tuition: she dived into mastering the design of candles. The art of selecting Italian cotton wicks for their distinct quality, the slowing down of time to balance natural soya and coconut waxes, the instinct to forge newness from time honoured essential oils, and the diligence to handpour and create each candle over seven hours. After a few fire-raising beginnings in the family kitchen, our company evolved and was named in honour of Orla’s twin sons; Max and Benjamin.
To this day, it continues to grow and thrive as a family endeavour with brothers, David and Mark, bringing their love of elegance and their skills in creating contemporary and distinctive designs to our luxury fragrances.
Our workshop is still based in the Wicklow hills, nestled amongst our family homes. Here, we have our own fragrance library and produce our own candles, diffusers and precious gifts. Here, our approach to quality and design is as enduring as our luxury range. Here we continue to build ideas that allow us find new ways to share the power and beauty of fragrance.
