On a summer day in 1999, Janet Russell stepped out into her garden after a rainfall and breathed in the scents around her.
Taking in the intoxicating fragrances of rose & honeysuckle, enhanced by the recent rain shower, she was inspired to create After the Rain. Honing the ingredients to perfection alongside our expert perfumery team, they captured the delicate aroma, bottling it for the rest of the world to enjoy.
Rebrand from Arran Aromatics to ARRAN Sense of Scotland
The Next Chapter...
In 2016 we unveiled our new brand identity, ARRAN Sense of Scotland. All the products that our customers knew and loved remained unchanged in scent but with even stronger links to the Isle of Arran.
We now name our bath & body collections after famous beauty spots on the Island. Simply by taking a shower with our body wash or a spritz of a perfume, you can be transported to the dramatic setting of Glenashdale Falls or the scenic hills of Glen Rosa.
Our purpose is to help connect the world with nature, and what better way to do it than to make our products accessible to customers all over the globe.
You won't find an ARRAN Sense of Scotland store on every high street, we are still a small local business at heart. Our website enables us to reach those who can't come to us and continue to spread the joy of our Island home far and wide.
Explore Lochranza & Machrie without leaving your home
As with many of our collections, the scents can be considered gender neutral. But, we are aware that it can be helpful to define the categories to help narrow down your choices, especially when buying a gift.
As fragrance experts, we historically focussed on scents more tailored to the female market. However, due to customer demand we launched two fragrances as part of our Men's Collection.
Relax into the spicy, warmth of patchouli and Anise with Lochranza, or reinvigorate the senses with the Sea Salt & Rock Rose of Machrie.
