Field Day IE

  • Gorse Season

    April and May is the main Common Gorse Season and here at Field Day Ireland, we thought we would take some time out to celebrate this most beautiful local plant and tell you a little more about it. Like for instance, did you know that Gorse is the county flower of Belfast?

    Gorse Season
    Common gorse is the only species of Ulex native to much of western Europe, where it grows in sunny sites, usually on dry, sandy soils. Plants can reach 2–3 metres (7–10 ft) in height. It flowers a little in late autumn and through the winter but it comes into flower most strongly in spring, making April and May gorse season with almost all of the plant covered in bloom.

    The western gorse, a close relative, flowers more towards the end of summer but in fact, even in the depths of winter, you'll find a gorse shrub somewhere with a few blooms left, which is just as well because folklore says "When gorse is out of blossom, kissing's out of fashion"...

    Gorse flowers have a distinctive coconut scent and apparently, it's experienced very strongly by some individuals, but weakly by others. In fact, according to Richard Mabey, scientist, romantic and the author of the great Flora Britannica, Gorse emits "fragrant come-ons". One afternoon, Mabey says he lay beside a gorse bush and it sent out a sudden burst of scent – coconut, vanilla, melon – as if in response to him!

    Gorse Season
    Well we don't know about gorse intuition but we do know that the Field Day Gorse candle is the best way to bring the beautiful scent of this native plant into your home. With a 9% fragrance level right down to the last bit of wax, you'll get over 40 hours of gorse gorgeousness (and kissing, presumably?!)Gorse Season Candle

  • Mother's Day Gifts | Field Day Ireland

    Mother's Day (11th March) is a great opportunity to celebrate the amazing women in our lives and I look forward to it coming around each year, not least because I get breakfast in bed - a favourite treat! I'm also fortunate enough to still have my own mother living close by and to have a great relationship with her.

    My father passed away suddenly in his 50's and my mother has been a powerhouse ever since, supporting my siblings & I and becoming the most wonderful grandmother to all of our children. She makes the best fudge in Ireland and knits *the* best jumpers - not the usual embarrassing granny creations.

    She's the inspiration behind the Rosie's Lane Candle Tin. I have lovely memories of the time spent in our cottage in the Mourne Mountains, surrounded by pretty lanes and meadows leading you down to the shore.
    Mother's Day
    But for Mother's Day, I always give her Field Day Wild Rose - it's the most uplifting fragrance, especially at this time of year when spring is struggling to make itself seen. Mother's Day Wild RoseForget all the bad associations you might have with traditional rose fragrances. This is a  authentic tea rose fragrance enriched by rose otto notes and a hint of plum. Even men buy it as it's not distinctly feminine. 

    Available in the full range of Field Day products - large and votive candles, drawer liners, diffusers, hand cream, hand wash, fresheners and sachets, it's so easy to make up a gorgeous mixed gift. It also pairs up perfectly with our Linen fragrance with many people buying a candle in one and a diffuser in another.

    We dispatch all orders the next day so you can order right up until Wednesday 7th March for Irish and UK orders. We can add in a personal message and every order over £50/€60 benefits from free shipping. And that's not all - we add a FREE freshener into every order! Sure what more could you ask for this Mother's Day?
