Sop ~ Scents of place is a Norfolk-made body care and fragrance brand – creating body wash, shampoo, conditioner, hand wash and soon-to-launch bath salts, candles and room diffusers. Sop is founded by Fiona Burrage, photographer and creative director of lifestyle brand Nor–Folk. The idea to create the brand in the first instance was conceived by Fiona’s desire to offer bespoke body care products to her guests at the Water Cabin (a place to stay in the heart of the Broads National Park), which is part of Nor–Folk. Sop’s brand identity is inspired by the Norfolk landscape and language – both visually and verbally. The brand name, the product names and respective descriptions along with the wider visual identity have all been influenced by Norfolk as a place.The name came first – a playful twist on the popular saying ‘a sense of place’. By changing this to ‘Scents of place’ we encapsulated the product range (all of which comprise beautifully crafted scents) and capture the original inspiration (the wonderful place of Norfolk).Sop ~ Scents of place tells its story through the products it creates and the way they are intrinsically tied back to the landscape and language that inspires them.Sop also has a small range of seeds – some of which are included for free on customer orders – encouraging the planting of wildflowers and sunflowers


Sustainability is of paramount importance to Sop –every detail is carefully considered. The shipping boxes and bags are fully biodegradable and made from recycled sources. The decision to use aluminium bottles was based on much research and consulting with a number of environmentalists. Whilst we sourced some good recyclable plastic options we discovered aluminium to be not only easier to recycle but infinitely recyclable. Plastic pump dispensers are sold separately to facilitate easier but also multiple use.Everything is made, bottled, printed and fulfilled in Norfolk – the majority of it within 5 miles of our home in Norwichmade by Norfolk people
