Over the last decade, Summerdown Mint has become known for its award-winning chocolates, teas and oils featuring the clean, intense taste and scent of our traditional Black Mitcham English peppermint.
Now we have worked with our perfumer to develop a bespoke fragrance based around our unique mint oil, which lies at the heart of our new collection of body, bath and home fragrance products. We have created everything from hand lotions and soap to reed diffusers and scented candles, with more to come.
Bright notes of lemongrass and zesty lemon blend with the greenness of galbanum and harmonise with our mint. Natural oils of blackcurrant, clove, cinnamon and cedarwood add depth and long-lasting qualities to this individual, contemporary fragrance.
It is the latest stage in a journey that has brought English peppermint home from America, after production died out in this country during the Second World War. It took us more than ten years to relearn lost farming skills and combine them with the latest production technology at our farm in the foothills of the Hampshire downs.
Like Black Mitcham itself, our new range is unique and evocative – the scent of the English countryside.
