Meet Our Brand New Product Assistant: Jessica Clugston

April 04, 2016

Jessica Clugston, Production Assistant at Nathalie Bond Organics

In the past year the Nathalie Bond Organics workshop has become increasingly hectic. So we thought it was about time we hired an extra pair of hands to help us out. We have hired our very first Product Assistant, Jessica Clugston. Jess is a chocolatier and has spent several years creating delightful sweet treats. And, although that might seem a bit different to skincare, her attention to detail and her ability to carefully craft luxury products using ingredients is just what we need. The observant ones amongst you might recognise her surname, and that's because she also happens to be the younger sister of our Marketing Manager, Hannah Clugston. Hannah asked Jess some questions...

If you could describe yourself in one word what would it be?
Well, I would say "silly", but my mum describes me as "sweet" - which I think is actually quite fitting because I love anything sweet tasting.

Where did you work prior to NBO?
I worked as a chocolatier and pâtissier for Boutique Aromatique on Welbeck Estate. I still work for them part time at the Welbeck Estate farm shop serving up chocolates and desserts to customers all day long.

If you had to choose one, what is your favourite chocolate bar?
It would have to be the Rye Crumb, Milk and Sea Salt bar from Pump Street Bakery. It is a super amazing bar made bean to bar in Suffolk. 

Which skincare products do you like using?
I use Liz Earle make-up and Kiehls Ultimate Strength hand cream because my hands are always dry due to the fact I use them all day at work! Cooking requires a lot of hand washing. 

Favourite Film?
Either Breakfast at Tiffany's or The Hobbit

Favourite Book?
Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows.

What do you like to do with an evening off?
A variety of leisure activities from aqua aerobics to walks, and vegging out with a good TV series, trying new chocolate bars! I also enjoy baking, but that probably goes without saying!

Best thing about working at NBO?
I always smell amazing after work!

What is your favourite NBO product?
The lip balm, especially the sweet orange as orange blossom is my favourite scent.
