MEET JESSICA - FOUNDER & DESIGNER
I have always been fascinated by the darker side of nature. From my humble beginnings into the foray of dark literature, to a young friendship circle running our own witches "club" (albeit a potting shed), brimming with essential oils and incense. The smell of ylang ylang & musk still lingers in my throat today. It was inevitable that some day I would craft my own little pieces of magic.
In 2019, I felt a cosmic pull toward perfumes, a constant nagging tug at the hem of my shirt, telling me I needed to sell it. I listened (of course) and after 4 months, I fell in love with fragrance. I was inspired to create products of my own that were more in tune with my personal style and ideology and so The Scent Coven became my life's work. Philanthropy is really important to me where Women's Rights, Domestic Violence and Female Initiatives are concerned. I am working to develop ways we can support Women's causes, in particular the fight against Domestic Violence against Women.
Lastly, you will find I have a really intense love for luxury, high end homewares and a clean, monochrome, Scandinavian aesthetic. We are the purveyors of gothic opulence & artistry with simplicity at it's heart.
MEET LEE - ART DIRECTOR
My husband Lee quickly became Art Director, tasked with capturing my creations in their best light & telling our brands story. Lee is a visionary, although he doesn't quite realise it. Working as a freelance photographer, he spends most of his days telling stories, a sports figures rise to success or a gritty, through the keyhole look at the work that goes into getting there. Lee brings all the pieces together to present to you, just what I envisioned in my minds eye. I have the intuition & instinct, he has the creative flare.
