About Us

Originally, Jane and Ruth dealt in French painted furniture, furnishings and lifestyle products, scouring the world famous markets and brocantes of France until their cars became too full to sleep in! Having sourced an artisanal triple-milled Marseilles soap they formed a partnership with the aim of finding other luxury products with a similar heritage whilst following the simple philosophy of quality without compromise, style without complication.  

Over the years they have expanded the Branche d'Olive brand into a range of elegantly packaged life style accessories, home fragrances, bath and body products seeking always the quality and authenticity which is at the heart of craftsmanship.  One of their most recent fragrances, Peony, in particular the room spray, was used in the #SprayPink campaign for Breast Cancer Awareness Month resulting in a £10.5k donation to The Royal Marsden.    

Having outgrown their kitchen tables, the business now operates from premises near Oxford. With full time staff, they fulfil orders for 300 stockists nationwide as well as supplying their burgeoning US business directed by brand development consultant Susu Langlands from Connecticut.  Their UK stockists include Fortnum & Mason, John Lewis, Blenheim Palace, Burford GC and Raymond Blanc's Belmond Le Manoir aux Quat’ Saisons where Branche d'Olive is the only fragrance and toiletries brand.  To celebrate Le Manoir's 30th anniversary, a cross promotional Limited Edition Boxed Candle was developed - further cementing Branche d'Olive as a premium luxury brand referencing French heritage with a commitment to quality.  Their own Branche d'Olive version of this product was shortlisted for 2015 Gift of the Year (GOTY). In 2016 their Peony Room Spray was shortlisted and a finalist for GOTY 2016 and the year also saw the brand nominated and a finalist for a Muddy Stilettos award.  Starting 2017 and another GOTY Shortlisted this time for the Boxed 3 x Votives we await the decision re 2018 where we have entered our latest fragrance:  Olive Wood and our new Gift Sets for Bedroom and Living Room.  

Next season's RETAIL FAIRS have yet to be finalised but will doubtless include:  Daylesford's Well Child Xmas Fair (The Cotswolds), NSPCC Henley & Spirit of Christmas (Olympia).   

Next season's TRADE FAIRS start in January: Top Drawer, Olympia (14th - 16th January 2018) Top Drawer, Olympia (9th - 11th September 2018).
