It's certainly excellent progress, R.P. - I haven't yet tried Gin & Lime, but the others that have been purchased from that line have become staples!
It's interesting that a few of those chosen by Vogue are available direct.
Has anyone here tried any of those listed?
Wow - BN's very own Chris is getting up there with the big guys!
Leilani was spotted recently too, rum - well done to all listed!
Many thanks for posting this @llp and for the kind remarks everyone, itís very much appreciated.
You're welcome, Chris - I do hope that more people are encouraged to buy direct by reading this article as it is an easy way to experience some excellent and interesting lines.
It's also quite possible that people may not realise that direct sales enable good quality purchases to be found at very competitive prices and, as you say - sample sets don't break the bank.
I hope that this article helps smaller, handcrafted brands gain more appreciation as they are producing brilliant alternatives for those who wish to broaden their horizons, especially in these current rather straightened times!
And many are making products with a quality that is uncommon at present.
Mark - I haven't tried that one yet (love Anjin & Viva Verde 'though!) - do you have the cologne or the concentree, please?
Wondering how they compare.
Oh and if youíve been watching the Facebook page youíll know Iím plotting a special version of Viva Verde for limited release this Christmas too ;-)

Well done Chris. Its great to see you there!
And the Gin Fizz concentree is lovely stuff - a happy blind buy!
Thanks llp, I'm very pleased you like it.
Very much thank you - the cologne version is lovely to wear as well, brighter - rather classy, I thought...
Out of interest, Chris - does the Directory notes listing here for Artemis need correcting a bit?
It's really enjoyable to wear - probably a great one for summer - makes me miss my scented leaves a bit right now.
Edit: Can't believe that I missed the Viva Verde 'on the rocks' thing - what have you done to it?
