PETROLHEAD.…is NOT about petrol! So why did I call my perfume PETrOLHEAD I hear you ask. Good question, read on.
I love Formula 1 but not because I am a petrolhead in the traditional sense of the word. I love it for the glamour, the excitement, the adrenaline, the speed, the hum and buzz, the vibrations you feel through your feet. I love speed, I love sport, I love being outdoors, I love glamour, I love fun, I love life. I wanted to design a perfume that made me feel all that when I wore it. To make me feel strong and alive. PETROLHEAD is that Perfume.
PETROLHEAD is usually defined as a car fanatic – but if you asked why people like cars fanatically they would not say because cars are a lump of metal and run on petrol. The answer would be as varied and as personal as my list above. It is the inspiration behind the car that drives the devotion. It is a strong word that inspires action and that is why I chose it.
BYKATHRYN redefines a PETROLHEAD as a woman, in fact anyone, who writes their own rules and does things their way, living life to the full in the moment. Mindfulness at full throttle.
The PETROLHEAD vibe is encapsulated by the phrase: Write Your Own Rules and is at the heart of this scent. PETROLHEAD perfume inspires you to take on the world and say, Yes!
Opens with a blend of citruses in the top notes, followed with a heart of conifers and jasmine, underpinned by spicy amber style notes giving depth and warmth.

PADSTOW ROCKS.…is NOT about Padstow! But of course it can be.
I love Padstow and Rock and all things Cornwall. I grew up going on family holidays in Mother Ivys, visiting Padstow and the north coast of Cornwall. I live inland and love the beech woods near my home but my soul misses the coast. When I visit the coast and smell the sea breeze a kind of magic envelops me and I feel both at peace and invigorated at the same time. The stress and strife of everyday life ebbs away as the sea ebbs at low tide.
So PADSTOW ROCKS perfume is my way of bringing the sea with me; invoking that carefree feeling. Wear it and remember those cliff top walks. Deep breaths of a gentle breeze carrying summer scents of wild flowers, salty sea spray and woody coves…with an ozonic spritz!
When you wear PADSTOW ROCKS you are transported to wherever your happy place is and reminded of carefree days – high days and holidays.
The PADSTOW ROCKS vibe is encapsulated by the phrase Get Out Of Town at the heart of this scent. PADSTOW ROCKS perfume inspires you to let your hair down and say, Thank you!
Opens with grassy and citrus top notes, followed by a salty ozonic and floral heart, underpinned by cedarwood base notes, reminiscent of the coast.

Katie, aka Kathryn, says….
“If you like it, wear it! I developed these scents to better represent who I am and what I aspire to and identify with; a vibe and a sense of being. And I soon realised there are others out there who feel the same.
“Perfume can inspire memories and I encourage you to wear it everyday as the backdrop to your life. Perfume can lift your mood and make you feel good.
“As the renowned author C Joybell C famously said: “You are never fully dressed without perfume! ” She also said: “Women waste so much time wearing no perfume. As for me, in every step that I have taken in life, I have been accompanied by an exquisite perfume!”
“I whole heartedly agree! My two fragrances are at the heart of the BYKATHRYN Brand and the vibes they encapsulate inspire the product range.
“My perfumes are worn by women and men as I have, to my mind, combined the best of the scents I like – and they are both men and womens’ fragrances. After all the term Perfume describes the strength of a scent, not who should wear it!
“Smell Good. Feel Good. Be Happy.”
