team celebrating togetherness in the outdoors

Nurture your staff with nature days

How deeply do companies really think through their staff benefits?

Happy people are more productive in the workplace so there is mutual benefit in being kind to your staff but is the result more driven towards keeping up with the status quo of benefits than really zoning in on what the individual devoting their time and energy to your business really wants and needs.

a tunnel symbolising greenwashing

Marketing and green washing – a light or a tunnel?

New brands, we are told, spend 20% of their time on the product and 80% on marketing. Without marketing we may as well be sitting in a cupboard under the stairs hoping our customers will miraculously find us working hard to change the world. Love it or hate it, we can't do without it.

Change your perfume habit – 5 reasons why you should do this now

I am a fragrance obsessive and feel pretty sure that I’m not the only one.

There is something so immediate and primal about the effect a scent has on you. The olfactory membrane, buried deep up our noses, is the only place in the human body where the central nervous system comes into direct contact with the outside world, giving us an instant response to threat or pleasure.

rose petals with perfino scented pendant

2021 - This Valentine's day is going to be a bit special ❤️

There is no law to say you have to give anyone a gift on Valentine’s day. It’s always nice to give or receive flowers, and perhaps a card, anonymous or “pretend” anonymous usually goes down a treat, but I’m beginning to think that this is the year that your loved one deserves something really special, as do you.

deep love essential oil blend by perfino

... deep love

So inspiration finally struck out of the blue, as it usually does, and we are happy to announce the birth of our third blend …deep love

I wanted to create a blend led by Neroli as so many people love this fragrance, and a very stylish friend of mine once told me that it was his absolute favourite.

a mans nose for smelling scent

How we smell?

People seem to worry so much about what their noses look like when we should really be rejoicing in their incredible ability to smell, and how much pleasure this underrated sense gives us.

Why we like giving

There have been a lot of studies recently on happiness and how to achieve it, and it turns out that one way is through giving to others – a classic win win!

Scientists believe that altruistic behaviour produces the positive feeling known as the “helper's high” and it may even have the added benefit of reducing stress and anxiety.

Conscious capitalism – and why we want to be part of it

Although Perfino is very much at the beginning of its journey as a business, we think that it is really important to think through exactly what sort of business we want to be.

off skin scent natural

Why we want to wear scent off the skin

Our skin is an amazing organ, and an incredibly complex one even though it is only a few millimetres thick.

Not only does it protect us from harmful things like moisture, the cold, and sun rays, but it is also capable of absorbing certain chemicals into the bloodstream which can make it an efficient way of applying medical treatment trans-dermally through creams, lotions and patches.

kindness as a brand value

Kindness as a brand value

Starting small but thinking big...

People ask what our core values are but actually this is not something I have to think too hard about as the entire Perfino brand screams kindness…but not in a shouty way.

Sweet orange

You definitely know this one! On the sweeter end of the citrus family, oranges are said to be native to China where they were documented over 4000 years ago! The clever Portuguese brought them to Europe in the 16th century...and the rest is history….

Indian Rosewood essential oil is steam distilled from the chippings of the Dalbergia Sissoo Tree, also known as the Himalayan Raintree. This medium to large sized tree is native to the foothills of the Himalayas and the Indian subcontinent. It’s a fast-growing, deciduous tree with a crooked trunk, leathery leaves and white-pink flowers.
