Heathcote & Ivory | A Brand Focus

Even though Heathcote & Ivory have almost been around for two decades, I only recently heard about them. Heathcote & Ivory was founded in 1999, by Managing Director Denis Aaronson. Today it remains as a British, family owned business – dedicated to selling gifts that feel and look very special. Over the last 18 years, they’ve sold everything from candles, to soap, to home fragrance and travel accessories! The company has over 20 collections of gifts, each of which have their own look and feel. Many also feature collaborations, with the likes of Kaffe Fassett, Sanderson, Morris & Co and Harlequin. Today, the distinctive Heathcote & Ivory brand continues to evolve – offering a delight in every gift. I’m really excited to bring you today’s Brand Focus with the Heathcote & Ivory team, I can’t wait for you to see some of these beautiful gifts! 

The Braids & Blooms Vintage & Co Collection 
The Braids & Blooms collection features notes of roses and fresh hay, paired with jasmine, lily, violet, juicy grapes, warm cedar, woody sandalwood and frankincense. The collection is inspired by the art of dressing up – designed to remind us of the scent of perfume or a feather upon a hat. The products in the collection are decorated with geometric prints, designed to mimic tiles and pretty floral prints. I have three products from this beautiful collection to show you! The Lip Butter Jar* (£4.50 here) has tasty hints of coconut and sweet caramel and it arrives in the cutest box bag. My favourite item has to be the Soap Flowers* (£10 here) which add the perfect touches of colour and design to the bathroom. Finally we have the beautiful Bath Fizzer Caddy* (£10 here) – when you pop off the lid you find 15 stunning bath fizzers!

The Harlequin Savanna Collection
You may, or may not know that Harlequin is a leading British Interiors brand. They are well known for the inspirational designs, which encompass different textures and different uses of colour. This Heathcote & Ivory collaboration features the Savanna design, which is a stately procession of matching elephants. The scent itself is a combination of lemon, bergamot, jasmine, geranium, musk and amber. I have two products from this collection, first is the Savanna Mirror* (£13 here) a travel mirror in a hand finished case. The second item is the Savanna Hand Cream* (£9 here) which includes a gorgeous set of three hand creams. The hand creams are created with vitamin E, cocoa butter, shea butter, lemon and aloe extracts, lavender and grapefruit essential oils. 

The Harlequin Papilio Collection
The Papilio collection is another selection of goodies that have come from a Harlequin collaboration. This time the design is a vibrant portrayal of botanically drawn butterflies in a lustrous colour palette. The products in this collection include notes of cassis, bergamot, lily of the valley, rose, amber and sandlewood. The Papilio Pencil Case* (£15 here) is a lovely hand finished case, with a zip pull and a contrast lining. 

The Love Is Enough Collection
This is possibly my favourite collection of all the products I got to try from Heathcote & Ivory! It’s a beautiful, delicate leaf pattern, which is balanced with a traditional typeface. The typeface is inspired by a wall design in the Green Dining Room at the Victoria & Albert Museum. The fragrance in this special collection is all about peach – pairing it with osmanthus, heliotrope and musks. The Medium Linen Cosmetic Bag* (£16 here) looks stunning in the Love Is Enough print, the attention to detail is impeccacble and I love that the words feature on the side of the bag! 

The Morris & Co Golden Lily Collection
This Morris & Co Golden Lily Collection features imagery of birds, flowers and leaves. It’s a very dense pattern, which has lily flowers and country blooms intertwined within. The scent for this is fresh and fruity, offering notes of: tangerine, bergamot, cinnamon, nutmeg and cedarwood. I have one pretty set from this collection and it’s the Guest Soaps* (£13 here) – the soaps are triple milled and are made with shea butter, glycerine and essential oils. They are each wrapped in paper, which is a really pretty touch. 

The Gardeners Collection
The final collection I have to share with you, is the Gardeners collection! Which is made for the gardener fanatic in your life! Whether they are always tending to the garden or they just like to occasionally get their hands dirty – this collection is for them! The Hedgerow SOS Tin* (£10 here) is such a lovely gift, as it arrives in a little tin and has some essentials packaged inside. When you lift the lid you will find a Hand Cream enriched with rhubarb, elderflower, shea butter and blackberry, a SOS balm and a muscle soak! 

I can’t believe how beautiful and affordable the gifts are from Heathcote & Ivory, I’m quickly becoming their biggest fan! I really hope you’ve enjoyed this Heathcote & Ivory brand focus, I’d love to know which of the collection is your favourite in the comments below!
