Field Day was born in 2002, when Alix, a girl from County Down was inspired to capture and bottle the native scents of our Irish countryside. Alix first started making candles in her kitchen. She was inspired by the basic luxuries that are around us every day, like a cosy log fire, stonewalls covered in brambles, the smell of freshly cut grass and freshly laundered linen.
Alix finds her happy place when she’s in an open field in the countryside. To her, the Irish field is a magical place and that’s what inspired her Field Day range, featuring the scents of rain, peat, ivy, flora, hay, and lichen.
”Creating beautiful scents is truly a labour of love for me. I have really enjoyed exploring the natural yet beautiful scents such as ivy, hay and rain, found in almost every field in Ireland, and giving them new meaning in candle form.
”But there’s more to us than just candles and fragrance; we love our land and have a desire to leave things better than we found them. A desire to promote the natural beauty of our land and raise awareness about conserving wildlife and habitats. That’s why we’ve teamed up with Ulster Wildlife to support them in their local wildlife conservation efforts.“
