BEAUTY & FRAGRANCE
Our sense of smell is the most powerful one we have. Closely linked to memory and mood, what we smell has the ability to stir us, move us and immerse us in an instant. STORIES was by founded by Tonya Kidd-Beggs in Northern Ireland, a gender-inclusive luxury fragrance house created to transport the mind and transform the emotions. STORIES Parfums is an olfactory ode to the memories that have shaped founder Tonya’s life. It was only after a transformative trip to the heart of perfume-making in Grasse, France, that she realised the power of fragrance to heal, release locked memories, transcend personal tragedy and inspire happiness. Spurred on by this discovery, STORIES PARFUMS was born. Using the best raw materials and time-honoured traditional methods, Tonya created each fragrance to capture a moment and unlock a memory significant to her. Each bottle is a narrative woven together by a carefully orchestrated balance of notes; as our name suggests, it is a story in aromatic form.
We aim to be forerunners in the luxury fragrance sector bringing luxury and sustainability together. We will continue to take small positive steps towards helping our world thrive rather than simply survive and we promise to be totally transparent with those who are on this journey with us. We recognise we are not where we want to be but we are proudly on this journey of becoming a sustainable luxury brand.
