Celebrating Authenticity

It was fourteen years ago when Krystyna Patey, inspired by her own cottage named 'Little Parkminster', embarked on her entrepreneurial journey. Seeking quality home fragrances and bath products at reasonable prices, she decided to take matters into her own hands and create a distinctive range herself.

After extensive research and self-teaching, Krystyna began with body scrubs and gradually expanded her offerings to include Scented Candles, Reed Diffusers, Room Sprays, and Soaps. The Parkminster brand flourished, drawing the attention of customers near and far.

Today, Scented Candles and home fragrance products, like Reed Diffusers, take center stage for Krystyna and the Parkminster team. This thriving business now ships over 60,000 products annually to more than 200 independent stockists in the UK and various international destinations, including Amsterdam, Ibiza, Dublin, Rome, Paris, Zurich, Valencia, Dubai, Nigeria, and Tokyo. What started as a humble kitchen table operation has blossomed into a global enterprise.

However, Parkminster has always held fast to its artisan roots, priding itself on producing quality goods. Every single item created by Parkminster is still meticulously handcrafted in small batches, in a small workshop based in Cornwall. The production team is not just a group of employees; they are considered friends and family & the independent shops that stock Parkminster's products share a genuine connection with the brand.

Parkminster's commitment to quality extends to its choice of ingredients. Scented candles and home fragrance products are crafted solely from natural plant-based materials, including essential oils and soy wax, all sourced sustainably. The bath and body range is entirely free from artificial preservatives, sulphates, and parabens. Moreover, Parkminster takes great care in selecting packaging and labeling materials that are either recycled or recyclable. As an environmentally conscious brand, Parkminster advocates the principles of 'reduce, reuse, and recycle,' consistently striving to minimise their environmental impact.

From its cottage origins to its global presence, Parkminster remains true to its founding values as an artisan producer. With a dedication to handcrafted excellence, sustainable practices, and a strong sense of community, Parkminster continues to illuminate homes around the world with its delightful fragrances.

Krystyna says: “Some of the ingredients are very bespoke, especially our signature scents, and for us it is all about quality, originality and sustainability, as well as utilitarian but attractive packaging & design.

“I am lucky enough to live in a lovely old barn with a beautiful garden filled with herbs and flowers, and it’s those fragrances, our home, and the countryside that continue to inspire me to create new scents and beautiful products.”
