The third of four siblings, Alix Mulholland grew up in Belfast where her father had a shoe retail business which ran successfully before, during and after the Troubles - despite many interruptions due to violence and bombings. It instilled in Alix an entrepreneurial spirit that she fostered herself after school by studying business in Glasgow.
In her final year, she had the idea for a home fragrance business that would celebrate the natural fragrances of Ireland as no one else was doing it - in a stylish, interior-driven way.
Straight after she finished college, Alix decided to put her plan into action. She went back to Belfast and started making soaps at her Mum’s kitchen table and from that, Field Day was born.
Fast forward more than a decade and Alix wanted to create something just a bit more luxurious, building on her knowledge of essential oils. After many iterations, Field Apothecary was born - 6 bespoke fragrances created with up to 11 essential oils in each one. All made in small batches and available exclusively on this website and in selected stockists worldwide.
Alix says of the Field Apothecary range 'Creating beautifully scents is truly a labour of love for me. I have enjoyed exploring the natural yet beautiful scents such as ivy, hay and rain, found in almost every field in Ireland - and giving them new meaning in candle form'
