Scully's smells divine. As it should — the converted villa that houses it is filled with the brand's natural beauty products. Scully's began in 1992 when Judy and Gerry Scully started making products from the lavender they grew on their farm 8km from Bulls. They've now sold to a business associate, but their daughter Juliette Arnott manages the shop. As a teenager, she'd plant and harvest the lavender, and now she loves sharing the much-expanded Scully's range with customers — some who arrive with substantial shopping lists as they pass through the region. “Scully's is available around the country and online, but we have the full range here, and people can pick up things and smell them and feel them,” she says. The best-seller remains the Gardener's Handcream, an original product that's been made the same way for nearly 30 years. 104 Bridge Street (SH1), Bulls. (06) 322 0953,
