We are excited about spring time and the imminent launch of our new Field Day Garden candle. Reminiscent of an abundant fresh green garden, it's got green leaves and tomato fruit notes to really bring a fragrance of summer into your home.
To celebrate this new candle, available from the 20th March, we are going a little off-piste with this blog post and share with you one of our many passions here at Field Day HQ - Gardening
March is an important month in the garden with lots of things you need to start planning if you want a gorgeous summer display of colour. Here are some of the tasks for your garden to-do list: Continue reading
Before I tell you about Field Apothecary, I need to say thank you for the amazing reaction to our name change and our new fragrances. It's been lovely to read all your messages of encouragement and to hear you're as excited as we are about the new Field Day range. Thanks also for your support of the Bog Standard 20% sale. I will warn you that our soap & candle stocks are extremely low right now with some fragrances completely sold out.
....and you're invited!
As many of you know, Bog Standard is my baby. It started at my kitchen table 12 years ago and I never could have dreamed that we would be where we are now with stockists and customers worldwide.
But in recent months, I've been mulling over making some changes - taking into account customer and stockist feedback as well as considering the changing trends in home fragrance, interiors and the retail industry. So after much deliberation (and there were a few late nights involved!), I have made the decision to change the name of the range from Bog Standard ® to 'Field Day ®'.

It's a lot of pressure and all while the weather is doing its usual fun thing. So here are our top tips to help make January just that little bit happier.. Continue reading

A trade only show, Showcase is our opportunity to meet with stockists, new and existing and to show off new products & fragrances in advance of general release. Continue reading
While I love the idea of a new year new start, I can't help but think that January is the worst time of the year to be making huge life changes. Many of us have had a lovely break from work, have been very relaxed about diet for a number of weeks and have enjoyed some late nights and perhaps a few parties. Even people who are fairly active will tend to reduce their trips to the gym as Christmas approaches. So what a shock to the system to deny yourself all the food and drink and to start exercising all of a sudden? Continue reading
