Olivia’s Haven Is Celebrating A 200% BOOM In Sales.

Olivia’s Haven (a home-fragrance start-up which launched just before the first lock-down in 2020) is celebrating an impressive 200% year-on-year sales increase.

Last year, they opened a 5,000 sq. ft workshop to support this growth.

The company was set up by Olivia Burns (from Ballymoney) in February 2020, after she took a voluntary redundancy from her previous role in PR. Since launching, Olivia’s Haven has generated impressive sales in the Republic of Ireland, the UK, and in the US.

Having only celebrated their 2nd birthday just recently (in February 2022), the brand’s Instagram account has already topped 21.7k organic followers, and their sales have increased week-on-week. As a result, Olivia is now even more focused on disrupting the home fragrance category, with her luxury products – at a more accessible price.

Olivia’s Haven’s candles are contained in beautifully stylish white matt glass tumblers, which are designed to be reusable as a holder for anything from hairbands to make-up brushes. This means that you can still enjoy Olivia’s Haven products long after the candle has burned out. Other scents in the collection include: Tea in the Orangery, To April, Downhill Forest, Irish Fireside, Eighter Island, Potting Shed, and Blackberry Picking.

“I’ve always had a love of scent, and the strong sense of memories they can evoke. I started to experiment with wax and fragrance oils to make my own, and I really enjoyed the process. I was confident that I had identified a gap in the market for a home fragrance collection with a luxury, sophisticated scent profile that was visually stunning, at an attainable price point,” said Olivia Burns.

In November 2021, we expanded, and we opened a 5,000 sq. ft workshop in Ballymoney, where we hand-pour everything. We created eight new jobs working across everything on site from product development and design, to production and fulfillment, to marketing and business development,” added Olivia.

Olivia’s fragrance collection has expanded beyond it’s initial selection of hand-made soy wax candles to now include reed diffusers and wax melts. All products are handmade, vegan, and the candles have a long burn time.
