Belgravia - A Scent Story

Black Rose & Frankincense

Scent Heritage

Belgravia, the part of London where roses are often seen delicately standing guard outside the beautiful, big white townhouses that line the streets in amongst garden squares, international embassies and high end hotels. Antique shops, chic furniture stores, and trendy art galleries cluster on Pimlico Road, while designer fashion and jewelry boutiques are on cobbled Motcomb Street. Fine-dining restaurants, posh delis, and atmospheric cafes cater to the area's wealthy international residents.

Our captivating scent of black rose and frankincense was created to capture the rich, refined and timeless elegance that encapsulates the mind when one thinks ‘Belgravia’.

Scent Profile

Roses have long been admired for their versatility in perfumery. They can express a wide range of scents, from fresh and floral to peachy and green. What's more, no two rose species are alike. They all have different qualities that can create different floral harmonies. It's no wonder that the British have been obsessed with roses for centuries, dedicating gardens and literature to them. Roses are often seen as symbols of love and appreciation, but there is so much more to this beautiful flower. Our Belgravia scent looks at all the quirks and nuances that make each rose unique, and challenges the preconceptions about what a rose can be.

Composed like a delicate symphony, Belgravia is a warm, spicy blend of exquisite black roses surrounded by notes of black pepper, frankincense and just a touch of natural Indian sandalwood. This immersive scent is a tribute to the whole flower revealing its beauty with top notes of soft delicate florals followed by sensual woody undertones.

Try it for yourself and experience being enveloped in a scent both sophisticated and embracing.

Why Choose Connie Gray?

What Makes Our Candles Special?

Our candles are made using very high quality mineral waxes. These waxes are vegan friendly, responsibly manufactured and are a by-product that would otherwise be wasted. They contain no nasty additives and we use only pure essential oils to fragrance the wax, ensuring that we harness the therapeutic properties from the oils. Our wax blend is designed to give the maximum fragrance throw possible, each candle has its own unique ratio of wax to oil to ensure the perfect strength of scent. Our wicks are 100% cotton and burn very cleanly, as with all wicks, we recommend trimming and managing them properly for optimum results.

Why Use Candles?

Expertly blended, our scented candles are designed to help you connect mind and body to help you realign with the best version of yourself. Whether you're drawn to our energising scents or our more relaxing blends, our range will allow you to use your intuition to guide you towards what you need. Candles are known for their calming and healing properties, adding a few candles to your home can instantly create a cozy and intimate atmosphere. The simple act of lighting a candle, its peaceful flicker and the gentle glow it produces, helps to relax and ease the mind. Next time you're feeling stressed, light a candle, watch the flame and take a few deep breaths – even just 60 seconds can make a big difference. The flickering of candlelight creates a beautiful atmosphere that cannot be replicated. Candles are a beautiful way to celebrate special moments in our lives. Whether we're lighting them on a cake or setting a romantic candlelit dinner, they help us mark important occasions like birthdays, weddings, anniversaries, graduations, and retirements. Candles make great gifts and are a lovely treat for ourselves!

What Makes Our Diffusers Special?

Our diffusers are made with a vegan friendly base and beautiful fragrance combinations. They have a low evaporation rate helping them to last longer and ensure you get the most out of your diffuser for as long as possible. There is no metallic odour that’s often associated with other base materials, our ingredients are all of the very finest quality. We scent load to the maximum amount allowed by the current rules and regulations and our mixes are always fully compliant with all regulations here in the UK and USA.

Why Use A Diffuser?

A diffuser is a great way to improve your home's ambiance and promote wellness. By releasing tiny, breathable particles of essential oils into the air, diffusers can help to calm and relax you, or uplift your mood. They're easy to use and require minimal effort, making them a great way to incorporate self-care into your daily routine. Eliminate unpleasant odours and create a pleasant atmosphere with an essential oil diffuser! Aromatherapy is also a great way to keep your immune system healthy and protect yourself and your children from seasonal threats. Thanks to their healing, therapeutic properties, diffusing essential oils around your house can help everyone stay healthy or recover more quickly.

What Makes Our Eau De Parfum Special?

Our Eau de Parfum contains a high concentration of the fragranced oils that define the scent. This high concentration makes for a more intimate scent experience and spritzing a few drops on yourself is the perfect accessory for any day, special occasion or evening out. With a mix of top and base notes that unfold throughout the day, it's the perfect fragrance for someone who wants to make a statement, enjoying the top notes by day and base notes by night. Our 15-20% oil concentration offers a scent that will stay with you for up to five hours, meaning that it’s longer lasting and can be used more sparingly. Plus, higher fragrance concentration levels means it’s got naturally reduced alcohol levels, meaning it's kinder to sensitive skin, reducing the likelihood of an adverse reaction.

Why Use An Eau De Parfum?

Perfume can be used daily to give a pleasant, desirable body scent, or just when you want to smell special. A splash of it can do wonders to boost that feeling of self-appeal and confidence, by virtue making yourself more attractive. Scent has been linked with having a positive effect on health and wellbeing by making people feel happier, reducing stress and anxiety, improving cognitive function, and helping with sleep. The power of pleasing scents has been discovered to be more than just a pleasant experience - it has also been found to have the ability to increase our pain tolerance by activating our body's opioid pathways! The power of scent is real. When you enter a room, your fragrance will be the first thing people notice about you and what will leave a lasting impression once you've left. Perfumes contain a vast amount of pheromones, which make you attractive to others, picking a scent that resonates with you and enhances your persona will ensure that your first impression and last impression are both positive, memorable ones.
