About this Company:

La Bougie

Having previously had an illustrious career as a chef in the UK to the Duchess of York, Sarah Ferguson, Lucy Haggarty, now has an equally colourful one as an expert perfumer.  After she married an Irish man, had children and eventually settled here, what Lucy wanted to do was to create the perfect candle.  ‘I think food, taste and smell are quite similar,’ she says.  The perfume world is a closely guarded one, but she spent eight years learning its secrets and a further two learning how to create the candles herself.

La Bougie launched in the summer of 2012 and is now stocked across the country.  These artisan creations are hand-poured and already have a devout following with candle connoisseurs and perfume lovers.  Lucy Hagerty’s working life is non-stop, with the opening of a boutique in Kinsale to coincide with the launch of the La Bougie perfume range at the end of 2015.   ‘I’m overwhelmed by how fantastically they’ve been received.’
