About Kate Robinson

While most kids tried their hand at running lemonade stalls to make a few dollars, our expert Kate Robinson tried selling fragrances made from boiled flower petals. While her first venture might not have been quite as successful as she hoped, the love of fragrances endured, until in 2014 grown-up Kate opened Sweet Fern in Ballarat.


Thankfully, this second, award-winning venture has succeeded beyond her girlish dreams. It has attracted huge interest with its perfume master classes, serene and delightful ambience, and wide range of exclusive fragrance brands including Cire Trudon, Fragonard, House of Lubin and Penhaligon – as well as the full Aesop range.
