A Little Bit About Us…
V&B started with two ladies, a mother and daughter with a life-long passion for Antiques and Decor, from small beginnings and a shared love of beautiful things we have grown our Luxury Flower Diffuser business.
Always seeking the unusual we are believe the things you surround yourself with and invest in, should reflect your true personality and bring you joy every day.
It seems to us that in today’s “throwaway” culture it is the pieces from the past, made with care, thought and quality materials that stand the test of time. These items are slowly disappearing from every day life so we wanted to give them a new purpose within our modern homes.
With “vintage being the new modern” we wanted to bring this idea in to home fragrance. Why not re-use something beautiful and prevent more needless landfill? Our idea of re-purposing lovely old bottles instead of using modern factory glass and creating a truly bespoke product unique to each customer is unique within the market place.
Our handmade diffuser flowers make a wonderful alternative to “sticks” or bamboo reeds and actually work much better. Mimicking nature itself, fragrance is diffused and evaporates out through the petals. Our top-end fragrances are designed by us and a renowned International Perfumier and are all produced in the UK. Most brands would expect you to buy new each time, but we encourage customers to make the most of the flowers and buy our refills.
Our unique collection of Antique glass bottles range from every period, from early Georgian through to more recent retro styles (we also have hundreds of stoppers in all shapes and sizes should anyone ever need one! ) We hate throwing any bottles away, and any damaged or chipped ones we try to repair or re-use within the business in some way. There’s always a queue for the crate of slight seconds at events.
Although we choose the antique bottle that we send out to you we are always happy to help with special requests, so please get in touch.
Always looking for new ways to bring vintage in to your home we re-purpose silver topped sauce pots for trinkets or matches and have brought back the scented sachet that would have scented linen cupboards and drawers in a new and beautiful way.
Here at V&B we are passionate about recycling and want our products to be as kind to the environment as possible. Packaging we receive is always re-used and we have been gradually reducing our use of plastics and continue to do so on an on-going basis.
Our fragrance bottles are fully recyclable PET, our next phase will be to use bottles made from recycled plastic once the bottles are easily available with our suppliers.
We also have a selection of Antiques and Home Decor items which you can see in the gallery, a selection of them are available to buy on our Etsy store.
