Hey, my name is Rebecca (aka Bec), I am from Hamilton and have a Bachelor in Business (Marketing), Foxglow started out as a female entrepreneur blog, then I stocked products made by boss babes (both something I still love and support deeply) and from here I started selling my own products. Foxglow is all about lifting each other up, feeling beautiful in our own skin and believing in ourselves to make our dreams come true.
What is your favourite scent of Foxglow perfumes?
I wear Addict or Opulent, more Addict in the colder months and Opulent in the warmer months. In saying this I defenitly wear them all on random occasions.
I’ve seen all your perfumes are vegan, cruelty free, paraben free and phthalate free. Can you tell us a bit about why this is important to you?
This is important for all aspects of cosmetics, we put these products on ourselves daily and sometimes do not even think of these sorts of factors. All of our products have the genuine consideration of being better for you than other products on the market.
What is it like being a woman running a small business in NZ? Have you come across any big challenges?
It is a rollercoaster but a rewarding one. You just have to remember tomorrow is another day and keep at it. Nothing was ever built over night and you can’t build something on your own. So thank you to all of you who are involved in Foxglow, we wouldn’t be where we are now without you!
Where would you like to see Foxglow heading in the next few years?
In the next few years I would like to see product expansion, watch this space! Pop-up shops and there is also the thought of a Salon, if the demand is there this would be amazing with a retail store but we will see.
Is there anything people can do to help support you and your business during this isolation period?
To please be patient with their orders being dispatched once lockdown has been lifted. We are so grateful for every single order made over this stressful time and we will do every thing we possibly can to get your orders to you in a timely manner. But most of all, to look after yourselves x
Do you have anything else you want to say about the company or to our readers?
Foxglow is now in its third year, which is a massive milestone! We would like to say a huge thank you to all of you who have purchased from us, are following us, sharing our socials and supporting us in our journey, you are all amazing x

Pursuit has key notes caramel, mandarin, orange and peach on the top, flowers of orange blossom and jasmine in the heart, and cedar, guaiac wood, sandalwood and amber in the base. If this description sounds familiar, it is because Pursuit is inspired by Bonbon by Viktor & Rolf, providing you with the sweet smell of candy in a cute travel sized bottle.
The smell of strength and independence is captured by the perfume Grace. With bergamot, mandarin and blackcurrant on the top, rose de mai, neroli, jasmine and freesia in the middle and patchouli, woods, amber, orcanox and vanilla on the bottom, this a scent that is delicate yet mysterious with its many different layers. Grace is a dupe of Giorgio Armani's Si. Again, having used both of these perfumes I can confirm that the scents of each are almost identical.
The glamourous scent of Eminence consists of raspberries, bitter orange and neroli orange blossom, jasmine and gardenia, ending with patchouli, honey and amber. This delectable combination is based off Lady Million by Paco Rabanne, making you smell like a million dollars but doing so in a formula designed to keep your skin feeling the same.
Opulent is explosive and fresh, with notes of bergamot and green tea, sweet and pure sambac jasmine, seductive centifolia rose, fressia and cattleya orchid. Musk and patchouli in the base wrap an oriental scent, while its milky and powdery notes gently touch your skin. As no one can seem to get enough of the beautiful creations by Viktor & Rolf, Opulent is inspired by their perfume Flowerbomb, designed to make you feel great, inside and out.
Unlike the other scents here, Ardent is a cologne instead of a perfume. Ardent is an intoxicating and powerful blend of light leather, blood mandarin, grapefruit, cinnamon, mint, rose, white wood, patchouli and amber. This is a cologne that is seductive, sexy and being inspired by One Million by Paco Rabanne, it is utterly irresistible.
