The Butchart Chronicles : September 15, 2017

New Arrivals at the Seed and Gift Store

Two Canadian Products You Won't Want to Miss at The Seed and Gift Store and Gallery

The Seed and Gift Store, and corresponding seasonal Gallery, are always sourcing exciting new products to showcase and sell in their stores.

This season, we would like to turn your attention to two Canadian brands that our new to The Butchart Gardens.

1. Wild Coast Perfumery

These all-natural perfumes feature scents named after various west coast locations. Each of these scents is inspired by the smell and essence of that location. For example, Tofino perfume features sweet and citrusy blended with wild rose, Western Red Cedar and Juniper -- a reflection of the collection of smells one might experience during an adventure in Tofino.

These products do not contain synthetics, petrochemicals, artificial fragrance oils, dyes, parabens, phthalates or chemicals of any kind.

Fun fact: a member of the Gift Store staff suffers from asthma and is typically very sensitive to perfumed products. She has not experienced any issues in the presence of these perfumes.

You will find Wild Coast Perfumery products in the Gallery because these products are created right here on the island.

2. Fire and Ice Canadian Diamonds

Treat yourself or a loved one to an original Canadian diamond. Choose a stunning bracelet, unique necklace or glistening earrings. These are truly Canadian products with diamonds mines located throughout Canada in Northwest Territories, Ontario and Quebec and the jewellery 100% designed and handcrafted in Ontario.

Each Maple Leaf Collection item sold at The Seed and Gift Store includes a certificate of origin, leatherette passport and matching box.

Please note: Fire and Ice Diamond products are currently not available in our online store so we encourage you to visit.

We hope you have the chance see these items for yourself this season at The Gardens.
