“There is no enjoyment like reading”… Jane Austen

At Adagio London, we love reading from the classics to the more relaxing and lighter reads in our myths and legends series. 

During the lockdown it has been publicly reported that we read more – for some people it was revisiting books from of old, for others’ it’s books not read before but have always wanted to and for other people it’s books half finished.

But what were we reading and who were the authors?.The Classics were favourites. Amongst these, Jane Austen (Pride & Prejudice, Emma, Sense & Sensibility, etc), Bronte Sisters (Wuthering Heights, Jane Eyre, etc), Charles Dickens (Great Expectations, etc), Harper Lee (To Kill A Mocking Bird), F. Scott Fitzgerald (The Great Gatsby), Herman Melville (Moby Dick), Fyodor Dostoevsky (Crime & Punishment), to name but a few.

These authors broke boundaries and challenged our conceptions and perceptions. They wrote books that we still read and enjoy these many years later. Such is our love of these timeless books that all have been turned into films, plays, television series, etc. And many have been translated into other languages widening their interest and appeal.

Our versions of these books are classics in themselves from their Luxury embossed hardback cover, gold leaf page edging, a perfect mix of tradition and the very latest in printing techniques. 19th century quality meets 21st century technology, the ultimate gift for any book lovers collection.

Our myths and legends collection are tales from all corners of the Globe and capture the mystery and drama of ancient legends through all the key stories and folk tales featuring gods, heroes, monsters and animals, as well as common themes such as creation, love, death and courage. Our collections encompass such stories as those from Arthurian times and includes the story of King Arthur, Queen Guinevere, Lancelot, The Round Table, etc, the Celtic tales cover the birth of Cuchulainn, The Fairy Dances and the Land of Youth. The Scottish legends include Tales of the Origin of Loch Ness, The Elfin Knight and St Columba. There are many other titles in this collection. Which is your favourite…

We sell soaps…

Although we are a business, we would like to think that our business objectives – is more than just the bottom line and is reflected in our outputs across newsletters, blogs and social media.

We care about our society – local, national and global, its environs.

Long before Covid-19 Pandemic came along, Adagio London had heavily invested in products for hand hygiene and sourced soaps not only from the UK but Ireland, Italy and soon Scotland.

With the recent increase of the R rate for Covid-19 infections, a number of communities in lockdowns or facing impending lockdowns, we thought we would revisit the theme of soaps and hand washing.

The original pandemic back in March 2020 saw the World Health Organisation(WHO), the NHS and other similar organisations across the World stress time and again the importance and efficacy of hand washing to reduce the spread of the virus. Added to that were the concerted campaign by all sections of the media to hammer home the message.

Adagio took this to heart as did our customers who showed increased interest in our extensive range of soaps and body wash during this time. Our soaps come in traditional bars as well as liquid forms both equally effective against the virus  A choice of fragranced, non-fragranced and for those with allergies and skin conditions sensitive to soaps a range is available in our collection to allow for this.

Our products in the hand and body care range are environmentally friendly, made from bio-degradable sources using 100% vegetable oils, are vegan friendly, not tested on animals, parabens free, SLS and SLES, packaging is recyclable and plastic free

Our soaps are mainly created by using 100% traditional triple milled methods to create a luxurious product leaving the skin soft and fresh smelling.

The list of aromas and fragrances in our soap range are too extensive to list here please feel free to browse and discover for yourself something to your taste. We also offer a children’s character soap range, selection important to encourage them to keep up with their hand hygiene 

The significance of Sanitisers can not be overlooked. Whilst its not possible to carry a soap with you on the go or move, the much more versatile hand sanitiser is available and comes in pocket size form that can be used on the go between hand washes. Whilst there are many hand sanitisers available out there it is important to note that not all provide for effective protection against viruses such as the Covid-19 virus

To be effective it has to be at least 70% alcohol.  Below is a selection of some of our best sellers…
