Union Jacks go up at Piccadilly Market

havenessence Piccadilly Market

Flags are going up all over London in preparation for the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee celebrations (60 years on the throne). Events will centre round an extended weekend on 2, 3, 4 and 5 June 2012.

Piccadilly Market is about 750 yards from Buckingham Palace and havenessence will be open on Saturday 2 June.

It is unknown, precisely, which perfume the Queen prefers. Like all successful monarchs she has maintained an air of mystery… for 60 years.

But mention has been made of Joy, Fleurissimo and Penhaligons. Rose is the common factor in these scents and havenessence stocks high quality rose absolutes, steam distilled rose essential oils, rose soaps and rose perfume sprays.

Visit us as part of the celebrations and leave smelling like a queen!

Coming soon to havenessence at Piccadilly Market: Prickly Pear Seed Oil, aka Barbary Fig Seed Oil, Opuntia Oil, Opuntia Ficus Indica Seed Oil, Cactus Oil.

As reported by the BBC in 2009, this is a wonder skin and hair oil, relatively new to the western cosmetics industry, from the women’s co-operatives of Morocco. It takes approximately a ton of the tiny seeds to produce one litre of oil. It is rare, expensive, and hard to source as a genuine, virgin, cold-pressed, organic, fair trade product.
