Scented Life

Scented Life is an artisan soap-making company started by Kommetjie local Robin Dauncey, who started Scented Life after 10 years working as a financial director.

“I was inspired by two emerging global trends,” says Robin. “The first is a social movement encompassing self-reliance, resilient communities and localisation. The second trend is a growing disconnect between people and the products they use. People want to know what is in the stuff they use and whether they can trust that it won’t harm their family.”

Putting the two together sparked Scented Life: A maker-space for learning about and creating grooming and cosmetic products. Their studio is a fun, social, inspirational environment where one can handcraft beautiful, simple and luxurious products with as much or as little assistance as needed.
Anyone can visit the studio Tuesday to Sunday between 9:30am and 5pm, and in evenings by appointment, to spend a few hours socialising and crafting soaps, lip balm, bath salts, lotions and bath fizzies. The activity is great for bonding with friends or just to enjoy some creative me-time. You can also purchase products for your own use or gifting. Robin also does bespoke orders.
