A Trip Down Memory Lane : 10 000 Followers

You may be wondering why it is so important that we celebrate reaching 10 000 Instagram followers. 

As a brand, we have evolved from servicing our bricks and mortar retail and trade customers to building a thriving online community and ecommerce site over the past two years. Celebrating this milestone means acknowledging the hard work and effort gone into growing our following organically and giving thanks to all our followers for bringing us to this stage in our growth as a business.

As part of our celebration, we take a trip down memory lane and pay tribute to every little process, product, campaign, and event that has gone into creating this brand Cape Island that we have fallen so in love with.

From our start in 2015, we’ve been on a quest to build a community of loyal Cape Islanders to help us share the story and essence of Africa. Every purchase, post, comment, and review helps us grow this community. The Cape Island fragrance journey has been an incredible one to watch and we thank you for coming along with us.

From our very first collection in 2016 - Clifton Beach, celebrating the beautiful waters of Clifton Beach in Cape Town, 

to our initial batch of hand creams in 2017... 

Followed by the launch of our Summer Vineyard collection (Known as Constantia Heights then) 

To moving into our first building in 2019. 

Then came the launch of our 3rd collection African Storm. 

Through it all our team continued to grow while chasing our goals and reminding ourselves to capture the special moments and celebrate the wins along the way. 

Today, we want to thank you for journeying with us and being part of Cape Island’s growing community. Having the opportunity to share our passion, knowledge and love for fragrance while welcoming your amazing feedback is a gift we will forever cherish.

To celebrate, we're treating you to 15% off our Room and Linen interior fragrance - Our Winter must-have! Explore the collection here
