Our Story

We have been sharing our passion for fragrance since 1993. Beginning production from the family kitchen table, father and son John and Andrew Nettleton formed a boutique English company with core family values – family, fragrance, quality and creativity. We needed a name, so embracing our English heritage the names Ashleigh (or Ashley) and Burwood come from the nearby aristocratic estates, Ashley Park and Burwood Park, both local to the family home and still to the company headquarters today, Heritage House in Surrey.

All these years later, Ashleigh & Burwood may have moved out of the kitchen but those founding values which shaped the heritage of the company continue to remain at the heart to form a diverse home fragrance company and the UK’s leading Fragrance Lamp supplier.

Our journey has taught us a lot about fragrance, which we have utilised to create our collection of high-quality fragrance all crafted in the UK. Each one of our products is expertly designed oozing our innovation and creativity, to the highest quality. We collaborate with leading perfumers and our very own highly skilled in-house design team to produce the very best in home fragrance to enjoy within the home.

Fragrance Lamps first caught our eye as an efficient, decorative home scenting method over twelve years ago. Since, we have learned there is so much more to Lamps than to rid the air of unwanted odours and replace with a desired fragrance. We discovered our Fragrance Lamps were effective at reducing some of the most common household air pollutants, including bacteria, mould spores and dust mites.

In 2020, as lockdown and social distancing became part of our everyday lives, we commissioned a specialist accredited US laboratory to test our Fragrance Lamps with the belief that their air-purifying abilities could extend to tackling coronavirus. When the results came back, they exceeded our expectations – showing that our Lamps could reduce airborne coronavirus by up to 97%.

As a home fragrance company our mission has always been to help people feel relaxed and comforted in their homes. The confirmation that in addition our Lamps can inactivate harmful airborne viruses; reducing them both within the air and on surfaces, gives us all extra peace of mind during a time of uncertainty.

Ashleigh & Burwood are a dedicated team of experts who strongly believe in what we do and who place quality and honesty at the forefront of our business.
