Paul Burns, the Founder of BURNS BY BURNS comments: "I founded BURNS BY BURNS with a strong commitment to promoting a healthy and sustainable lifestyle that celebrates the beauty of nature. Our scents are inspired by the breath-taking hotspots of the Chiltern Hills, and we hope they will inspire people to reconnect with the outdoors, breathe in the fresh air, and immerse themselves in the tranquillity of green spaces. As someone who is deeply passionate about clean-living, wildlife, and the environment, I believe in the transformative power of nature to enhance our physical and mental well-being. By sharing our vision with like-minded partners, we hope to encourage more people to embrace a lifestyle that prioritizes our connection to the natural world."
