Her dream to create Rebecca Tracey - Perfumed Workshop was born when she lived among aromatic, intoxicating and sensual scents in the colorful subtropical wilderness of Andalusia in the south of Spain.
This land is blessed with golden sunshine, bright blue skies, dazzling flora and the intoxicating natural scents of jasmine, hibiscus, oleander, dama de la Noche, bougainvea and complemented by the citrus scents of orange and lemon blossom.
It was in this all-natural, balsamic environment that she was fascinated by the art of creating wonderful 100% natural fragrances 10 years ago - in collaboration with the internationally celebrated and award-winning master perfumer Nicholas Jennings.
Nick was a decade or more ahead of her. When he moved to Provence from the exotic Far East, he began studying and experimenting with pure organic essential oils to create his own unique bouquets.
He had an excellent reason for this. As you can see, Nick was excluded from the "good smelling" inserts because he suffered from allergies that made the use of synthetic, commercial products (even the high priced, big brands) absolutely taboo.
This mixture of passion and necessity (and a few years of perfecting his craft) gave birth to Sharini Perfumes - a brand that would soon be internationally acclaimed as one of the best organic perfumes in the world.
It is no exaggeration to say that she is proud of her creations. She won prizes and high praise at top exhibitions in Paris, Lyon, Madrid, Barcelona, Nuremberg and London.
Six years ago Rebecca and her husband Danny moved to the wonderful Stratford-upon-Avon. They are a great team because Nick and Danny are childhood friends who have undertaken many joint ventures.
This picturesque, historic town of William Shakespeare is also home to your Rebecca Tracey Perfumed Workshop. She is based in the delightful Bonds Center (www.bondslifestyle.co.uk), a fascinating Aladdin's Cave that offers a variety of marketing opportunities a mile or so from downtown.
In this artisan environment, she enjoys creating and developing dreams and products that are enjoyed by a growing and loyal following across the country.
At the heart of it all, she shares, above all, the original, pure and organic ethos of lovingly hand-crafted, wonderful fragrances and products. Her most sought-after fragrance creations include Lemon, Patchouli & Lemongrass; Frankincense, Lavender and Geranium; Oak Moss & Sandalwood and Lavender & Orange, which you can enjoy in her beautiful candles, natural reed diffusers and aromatherapy room fragrances.
If you are ever in Stratford, please feel free to stop by Rebecca's and meet her at Bonds. Perhaps if you are in the south of France, there is no better destination than the enchanting medieval village of St. Guilhem le Desert, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the most beautiful areas in France.
Whether here or there, you will be sure of a warm welcome and inspiring scents that fill the air.
