The Alba Collection

This collection has been inspired by 'Alba' which is the Scottish Gaelic name for Scotland. I grew up speaking Gaelic in Scotland and visiting many gorgeous places across our beautiful country. Our fragrance names are in Gaelic to bring more knowledge and education about the language, learning a few new words is great for everyone! There will also be recommendations of places to visit in Scotland so you can get to know some of the extra special places the country has to offer.

Canach - Cotton Grass/Bog Cotton
