....and you're invited!
As many of you know, Bog Standard is my baby. It started at my kitchen table 12 years ago and I never could have dreamed that we would be where we are now with stockists and customers worldwide.
But in recent months, I've been mulling over making some changes - taking into account customer and stockist feedback as well as considering the changing trends in home fragrance, interiors and the retail industry. So after much deliberation (and there were a few late nights involved!), I have made the decision to change the name of the range from Bog Standard ® to 'Field Day ®'.
First up, the products themselves are not changing however we are discontinuing some fragrances - more on that in a minute. The packaging look and feel will remain similar with the same floral illustration and cream background.
Linen, Sea, Field and Wild Rose will be our 4 key fragrances and will come in the full range of products - candles (votive & large), soap bars, liquid hand soap, hand cream, diffusers (new & improved bottle!), fresheners and sachets, as well as our new product - drawer liners, something that lots of you have told me you would love to see. Wild Rose is the new name for Rose but the fragrance is the same.
New & Discontinued Fragrances
As part of the changes and taking into account trends in home fragrance and customer demand, we will be discontinuing some of the existing range, namely Hedgerow, Clover, Orchard and Moss. This makes space for me to launch 5 new fragrances in large candle format only. The new fragrances will be called Garden, Tea, Fireside, Gorse and Woodland. Mindful of the number of dedicated fans of our Moss candle, the Woodland fragrance will contain similar fig notes.
When can I order the new Field Day range?
The Field Day range will begin to arrive with our stockists and will be available online from the beginning of March - co-inciding with the launch of our new Field Day website. Until then, the website will remain branded as Bog Standard and the entire Bog Standard range is discounted by 20% until Field Day launches. Stock is limited - so if you're a fan of any of our discontinued range, this is time to pick it up before it is gone forever.
I'm very excited about these changes and looking forward to 2017. Thank you for all your support over the years and I hope you love the new range! Watch out on our Facebook page for competitions and offers at the beginning of March!
