Our Story

After many happy years as stay-at-home mums, we were both ready for a new chapter in our lives. Stomping across the Somerset hills, walking Nikki’s beagles (yes you, Charlie & Lola), we had our 'light bulb' moment...we thought we’d take the plunge and work together. With different styles and ideas, but a shared love of beautiful things, we decided to create a range of luxury home fragrance that appealed to us, our families and friends and now, we hope, you!
And so, Nostara was born !

With our brand name 'Nostara' rooted in the name 'Ostara' (the Goddess of Spring), we felt this symbol of new beginnings was the perfect expression of where we were. Our hope was to create a collection of home fragrance that was aspirational, but accessible - bringing a sense of luxury to the everyday.
We’d like to think that your relationship with Nostara will be like dealing with a trusted friend who, like you, loves the best things in life.
So, we’re wishing you a warm welcome to the world of Nostara - please enjoy!

Nikki & Alex
