Located on a working saw mill in Oxfordshire, LA-EVA is the organic evolution of an artisan soap studio. Handmade, traditional cold process soap provided us with a unique platform for exploring palettes of scents, the potential of natural raw ingredients, and the care and attention it takes to create something truly beautiful. For a handful of years, in our fragrant studio space, we cooked, cut, and edged blocks and bars of soap.
In our studio we work on unique blends, exploring the layering of ingredients, properties, textures and scents using perfumery principles. We are inspired by the idea of synaesthesia (from the ancient greek σùν, syn – ‘together’ and αіσθησις, aisthesis – ‘sensation’), that captures the interplay of our senses and their synergy. Our blends have come together as incarnations of memories and sentiments. Notes harnessed, recomposed and bottled, offering a scent scape to every day self care rituals.
