Summer fresh fragrances for your home

Our stimulating range of aromatic tapers and room sprays from Caroline Hardy’s Illumens is currently engaging and cooling visitors to the shop in the August heat.

Top of the range is the beautifully packaged Times and Places collection, featuring Where Lily Worked, Reading Room, Heavenly Embers and the ever popular Gentleman’s Shed.

Equally inspiring are the fragrances from the Abbaye collection, created following a visit to a 12th Century Cistercian abbey in Picardy. With their beautiful packaging featuring pen and ink sketches of flora and fauna, reminiscent of a Grand Tour sketchbook, these room diffusers and sprays make delightful and long lasting gifts.

Come and sample both collections at Papa Luca this month.

 

Saccoo bags for all at Papa Luca!

Now in stock, a wide range of great bags in richly coloured luxurious leather from Saccoo of Amsterdam.

Saccoo leather is selected for strength, character grains and a luxurious tactile quality. During the tanning process special barks and juices of trees are given to the leather skins. The natural dyes add even greater natural beauty to the leather, whilst reviving an art and skill used in the past and offering an eco-friendly alternative to synthetic dyes.
