Boutique independent store Farringdon & Forbes recently invited a select group of local bloggers down for an introduction to their luxury home fragrance and gifts. Our guest blogger Sian went along to check it out…
The lovely ladies at Farringdon & Forbes invited me along to their first ever blogger event located at their Resorts World, Birmingham store. Upon arrival I was greeted with prosecco, canapés and a warm welcome from the Founder Jules. The store is beautifully displayed and smelt gorgeous from the array of candles that were lit around the store.
Farringdon & Forbes is a new business venture that is located in the resort opposite Guest Services. The luxury home fragrance brand are exclusive to the Resort and I can see a bright future for them as their 100% soy wax hand poured candles smell amazing. I took home the Cedar, Musk & Vanilla candle which was one of my favourites.
The very passionate Jules was great at educating us all about the candles and picking out the different fragrances. What I love about Farringdon & Forbes is that all their candles and fragrances are created and supplied locally; they are big on recycling and limit packaging wherever possible so they can offer luxury affordable fragrances and gifts without compromising on quality and price.
They also encourage customers to recycle their used candle glasses to receive 10% off their next purchase. Which is fantastic and it’s something that other candle brands don’t do.
Something that amazed us all upon entering the store was the stunning flower wall display that they create for weddings and other events; they also have a growing list of local hotels, restaurants and spas that are stocking their beautiful homeware and fragrances.
I’m taking my mom to Resorts World next week for a special Birthday meal, so I will be bringing her to Farringdon & Forbes as she will absolutely love it, she’s already claimed the beautifully scented candle I brought home and wants to check out all their other fragrances.
