Our UK Founders Katy Worthy and John Tarbet have over 40 years’ combined experience within interior design, commercial building technology, and luxury hospitality.
Their passion for fragrance stems from a belief that design and ambience are captured through all modes of sense experience. Whether this is the final touch to a beautiful and comforting living space or an added level of immersion for customers in a commercial setting, scent design is a powerful way to improve and enhance your surroundings.
Katy has over 20 years’ experience in high-end interior design and property development. Driven by a passionate entrepreneurial spirit, Katy has always worked within her own businesses which she now grows and nurtures alongside her two young children.
John Tarbet (JT)
