The key de­sign trends for au­tum­n­win­ter 2018

RTÉ Guide - - Contents -

A new Ir­ish fra­grance com­pany, Jane Darcy, is the brain­child of en­trepreneur Gil­lian Halpin from Dublin. As a work­ing mother of two young girls, Gil­lian knew the value of tak­ing some time out to light a can­dle and en­joy a re­lax­ing mo­ment, so she de­cided to cre­ate her own brand to en­cour­age oth­ers to do the same. The com­pany was named af­ter her daugh­ters’ mid­dle names, Jane and Darcy. The Jane Darcy range of scented can­dles is made from 100% nat­u­ral soy wax with a 10% per­fume con­cen­tra­tion. With a burn time of 45 hours, the can­dles are free from para n, min­eral wax and preser­va­tives and come in a range of beau­ti­ful fra­grances that will in­fuse a room and set a tran­quil mood in the home. The fra­grances in­clude French Laven­der & Lo­vage; Ka r Lime, Basil & Blood Orange; and Le­mon­grass & Berg­amot. The same fra­grance blends are also o ered in the Jane Darcy Lux­ury Reed Di users.

Gil­lian Halpin says: “When I was start­ing Jane Darcy, I wanted to cre­ate some­thing beau­ti­ful that would en­cour­age not just me, but peo­ple around me, to trea­sure the sim­ple mo­ments in life – the mo­ments that mat­ter the most. I have been work­ing hard on these fra­grances for the past year, never com­pro­mis­ing on qual­ity and I am thrilled with the re­sult. Ev­ery­thing from the soy wax to the pack­ag­ing has been cre­ated with metic­u­lous at­ten­tion to de­tail, mak­ing it a lovely gift for un­der €35.”

The Jane Darcy range is avail­able at and in se­lected lo­ca­tions na­tion­wide. Can­dles cost €30 and di users cost €35.
