In Conversation with Richard Plowden of Plowden & Fallow

The world of Plowden & Fallow is the home to one of Britain’s newer contemporary fragrance houses, located on the Plowden Estate in Shropshire, England. They produce artisan luxury fragrances and shaving products and accessories for those that demand not only the very best of quality, but also for those that yearn perhaps, for the less conventional.

Plowden & Fallow is inspired by great British traditions, folklore and eccentricity. They take a great deal of inspiration and knowledge from the past and apply it in the modern day to create quintessentially British fragranced products, to exacting standards, which, whilst giving a nod to tradition, contain a refreshing modern twist. Plowden & Fallow is a proud British brand, and all of their product ranges are produced here in the UK, by artisan craftsmen and women, who combine knowledge with passion and the expertise in their individual crafts, most often, passed down through generations to the current day. The brand's fragrances and other ranges are produced in small batches, and all are constructed by hand.

“We believe in making products to last and by hand. All our products are produced here in the UK which is important to us. This does come at the expense of our profitability, but it ensures that we’re an ethical business which we’re really passionate about. We’ve been trading for 2 years, and our niche is our strong eccentric undercurrent with a slight modern contemporary twist. This is how I describe our products to people.”
