Caldey Island


In 1929, Cistertian monks from Scourmont Abbey in Belgium made their way to Caldey island; a tiny, pastoral landmass off the coast of south west Wales. Finding an abundance of wonderfully fragrant wildflowers, particularly a profusion of wild lavender, in the 1950s the monks began selling bunches of Caldey lavender to tourists who visited the island. The popularity of these bouquets gave the monks the idea of creating fragrances from these wonderful ingredients, and the popularity of their fragrances convinced the monks to begin operating on a more commercial scale. With the establishment of the Caldey Island perfume brand the house now produces some of the finest artisanal scents in the world, and we at Roullier White are delighted to bring these skilfully blended fragrances to our customers.
