Made in England, inspired by Italy and, er, based in Torquay. It doesn’t necessarily sound like a winning formula does it? And yet it is. If you haven’t already discovered skincare, fragrance and home fragrance company di palomo give them a try.
Created by three friends who were inspired by their Italian hols their Wild Fig & Grape range features everything from a sensuous Bath & Shower Gel to a really cool scented candle that comes in its own wooden bowl (a far more useful receptacle than a glass tumbler once it’s finished).
I’m not normally a fan of fig but the grape undercuts it beautifully taking some of the natural sweetness out of it. I think I have another reason for liking the brand though – the English Riviera was where I spent all my childhood holidays. Hey, come to think of it, maybe I should take a leaf out of their book and launch my own holiday inspired range? Eau de Devon anyone?
