Caroline White, Suki Shufu

I had the pleasure of working with the delightful, insightful and industrious Julie Foster in creating and developing an exquisite range of oils for my label. She is extremely passionate about what she does and this is evident in the quality of the products that she creates and produces. Julie is one of the most efficient and professional consultants that I have worked with, her knowledge of her industry is second to none and she worked and advised me on issues way above and beyond that of her remit.

I look forward to working with her again when I further expand my range.

Caroline Fooks, Caroline Fooks Design

Julie Foster has created for me a beautiful range of body products and home fragrance products which along with reflecting my personality are full of subtle fragrances that enhance a room’s natural atmosphere. When Julie and I first discussed creating this range together she took the time to get to know me, my likes and dislikes and was able to pinpoint exactly the type of atmosphere I wanted to create with these scents and at the same time came up with a range of body products containing essential oils and natural products which are much loved. Julie was professional and easy to work with. She had a comprehensive knowledge of the marketplace and the process and I would highly recommend her.

Judith Goldsmith, Blow Dry Bar

Julie Foster has produced a micro portfolio of natural aromatherapy massage oils for my hair and beauty salon. She has produced products in realistic quantities that my customers love within an affordable price structure. I thought that big named brand products were what attracted customers but bespoke niche products work even better and give me a PR and marketing advantage.
