Fashion artist Emma J Shipley’s award-winning land of curious creatures has
expanded to a magical collection of home fragrances inspired by myths, legends,
and the beauty of the natural world. Designed in London and handcrafted from the
finest bone china with real gold accents, each deluxe diffuser is composed in
collaboration with the British fragrance house Bahoma. The six fragrances are as
imaginative and exotic as their hand-drawn illustrations inspired by Emma’s
adventures in Africa, South America, and the British countryside. Each striking scent
comes with cotton diffuser sticks and lasts up to seven months – much longer than
most standard diffusers.
