SENSICHIC LAUNCHES IN PETIT MIRACLE HUB

SensiChic was one of the few handpicked brands chosen to launch new small business initiative Petit Miracle Hub in Shepherd’s Bush last night.

Located in a vacant shop space on the first floor of West12 Shopping Centre, Petit Miracle Hub is a new concept that unites start-up brands and entrepreneurs together under one roof, giving them the chance to showcase their products in a retail environment.

The event was a huge success with high attendance from local residents, press and Christmas shoppers alike. A wide range of locally made products were available to purchase from jewellery to fine teas to clothing and of course candles courtesy of SensiChic.

SensiChic founder and former beauty PR Patrizia Galeota said: “I am very proud to have been selected to be a part of this unique venture which has provided me with the opportunity to retail my brand in a central London space, giving me the chance to reach a new customer base. It’s a fantastic opportunity for start-ups like mine, there really should be more projects like this up and down country!

To celebrate last night’s launch the new Special Edition Winter Punch (RRP £15.95) candle was unveiled, a fruity and spicy intoxicating blend of Clove, Cinnamon, Vanilla, Red Wine and succulent Cherry for an indulgent and celebratory festive candle with a rust red base colour adorned with an owl charm available exclusively at Petit Miracle Hub, West12 Shopping, Shepherd’s Bush.

SENSICHIC FOUNDER REVEALED

So here it is, the big reveal! After 10+ years in the cosmetic industry working for some of the greatest brands known to woman, Beauty PR Patrizia Galeota has decided to take the bull by the horns so to speak and follow a lifelong dream.

Patrizia Galeota“It’s always been an ambition of mine to run my own business and I needed to change my work/life balance after the birth of my son. I wanted to develop something I could do from home and that would generate an income as well as offering the flexibility I needed as a mother. Creating natural candles free from paraffin and other toxic chemicals, that are stylish and enhance any home has become a true passion of mine and it’s definitely one of the best decisions I have ever made.”

Founded by Patrizia from her North-West London kitchen where she now lovingly hand-pours batches of 10 candles at a time, the idea for Sensichic began in 2011 with a wedding in Southern Italy and trying to decide on the perfect ‘Bomboniere’ (wedding favour). In Italian culture, it’s customary to present each household with these gifts. The bride-to-be wanted something original, quintessentially English and personal, hand-blended and hand-poured scented candles were her choice and the rest as they say is history.

New London-based candle brand Sensichic is passionate about creating exquisite candles and home fragrances in a variety of equally stunning designs to suit every desire.   The brand’s philosophy is to craft beautiful candle collections that create the perfect ambience to suit any taste or mood and make the ideal gift to celebrate any occasion.

Officially born in 2013, SensiChic initially launched with its Classic Collection a premium and sleek line of divinely blended scents in heavy glass tumblers with a silver lid. 2014 saw the launch of the Eclectic Collection each with a quirky personality and presented in a delightful silver tin with embossed lid. In addition the brand also offers a wonderful bespoke service for individual candles to commemorate any celebration or occasion.

Sensichic candles are available from £9.99, for further information and to buy online please visit The Collections page.

Out of Stocks… Not for long!

First thing’s first… we’d like to say a big thank you to all those who purchased one of our #ExquisiteCandles it’s been such an exciting week for our tiny brand and a real eye-opener into a new world of entrepreneurship!

Out of stock in two scents within 5 days was unthinkable but it happened… SensiChic are a boutique brand and limited numbers will always be made of each candle due to them being individually hand-blended, hand-poured and hand-wrapped by one person, the Founder & Director.

This evening our small North West London kitchen will be filled with the various delicious aromas of fresh batches of Orange & Clove and Spiced Apple & Vanilla. For those that really want to get their hands on one don’t despair, once these are ready the “Out of Stock” label will be lifted.

Wishing you all a lovely weekend!

The Wonderful Power of PR

It’s been 10 years since the Director & Founder of SensiChic has worked in the Public Relations arena with big budgets to play with for launching new products and creating beautifully packaged creative mailers to entice press to write about a certain item or range, so the element of surprise isn’t as heartfelt when sales are generated due to a piece of coverage as this is what is “expected by the business” due to advertising spend and status within the industry.

However, the feeling of amazement and great achievement that engulfs us on this occasion is extra special… to think that there are individuals out there interested in purchasing one of our products is an honour and a blessing.

What an exciting day today has been… We received and posted out our first ever orders and want to take the opportunity to thank Jane Cunningham, British Beauty Blogger for her support and spreading the word!!

SensiChic is a super tiny brand so every sale made is greatly appreciated! We don’t want to compete with the big boys out there we just want to make premium and exquisite scented candles in a variety of equally stunning designs without the luxury price tag for all to enjoy.

Happy rest of the week!

We finally go live…

Today is the day… it’s been a long time coming! The dream of one day being able to create and launch a beautiful brand is finally becoming a reality and what a fabulous experience it has been so far and it’s only just the beginning.

The idea of creating exquisite candles in a variety of equally stunning designs is one that is a very close and personal one. The number of tears from magazines, print-outs of blog posts and market research reports collected over the years for insight and inspiration are endless not to mention copious notebooks and sketches stored in various drawers of the house.

If you want to know how it all started check out Our Story.

At SensiChic we disagree that luxury scented candles should be extortionately priced, unfortunately the ones we all aspire to having in our homes usually are.

If it’s the personal touch you are looking for it won’t get much more personal than this: each candle is hand-blended and hand-filled in a tiny North-West London kitchen using high quality 100% natural, biodegradable, free from pesticides and herbicides soy wax and lead-free cotton wicks to achieve a longer, cleaner burn without soot build-up. Individually hand wrapped in cellophane sealed with a satin ribbon and bejewelled with a charm and all done by ONE person, the Director & Founder of SensiChic!

The first ever SensiChic collection to launch today is the Classic Collection made up of two styles of limited edition festive scents:

1. Orange & Clove, Seasonal Cedar and Spiced Apple & Vanilla (£18.95 / 230g) are presented in round glass tumblers with a base layer of corresponding coloured wax to match the scent elegantly crowned with a silver lid.

2. Winter Punch and Vanilla Chai (£13.95 / 200g) are encased in a stylish 77mm2 square glass both with a hint of colour to match the scents.

There are so many creative ideas in the pipeline for 2014, we hope this gives just a little taster of things to come…

Ciao for now!
