An Irish business through and through Sass & Boho is fast becoming a household name for its peerless home fragrances and exquisite candles. Created in 2015 by Tyrone native Laura McNamee, Sass & Boho is the stunning result of this entrepreneur’s obsession with luxury candles and world class diffusers; quite simply she wanted to produce her own line of luxury homeware products at an affordable and accessible price with scents inspired by her life and travels. What you have here is expertly produced products without the compromise; the ultimate homeware gift.
Perfectly minimalist packaging aside nothing here is mass produced; each candle is made using the utmost in skilled craftsmanship. Hand-poured in County Tyrone each candle is lovingly tended to and monitored for 24 hours before being left to cure for three weeks. It’s the personal touch and the delicate process that brings Sass & Boho to the top of the luxury market not to mention the quality of the ingredients used. The candles are composed of the finest curation of premium essential oils, fragrance oils and a unique blend of sustainably sourced, eco-friendly soy and vegetable waxes. What’s more, there’s nothing nasty in the candles; no paraffin, no lead with 100% cotton wicks. The perfect candle is about more than just a sensual fragrance; a beautiful and clean, toxic free burn is just as important as is its burning time (50 hours).
Made in the Irish countryside the diffusers combine premium grade fragrance and essential oils. Free from alcohol the Porex eReeds offer a contemporary alternative to traditional rattan reeds; cutting edge design ensures optimum and longer lasting results whilst retaining the look and feel that make diffusers so popular. Your Sass & Boho diffuser can last from a minimum of 4 months up to 6/7 months.
As for the scents? The only trouble you’ll have is choosing your favourite from such a divine range of options be it fragrance or candle. From Vetiver and Leather (Les Ecuries) to Rose of Saffron and Pink Pepper (Mykonos), there’s plenty here to tantalise the senses, but fear not, they’re perfectly balanced to ensure they’re never overpowering. Each scent is based on Laura’s travels and a memory that we can all share. With such an accessible price point there’s no reason why you can’t have your cake and eat it too with one of each on offer.
