BMCC Success Story: The Rose Tree

In May 2017, the BMCC Trade Team introduced British company The Rose Tree to local department store, Metrojaya.  This has resulted in the launch of the brand in 3 Metrojaya stores this year. 

The Rose Tree is a multiple award winning British beauty brand with a focus on extraordinary organic products for body and soul. Its products include luxury organic skincare, body, bath and shower oils, and its natural wax aromatherapy candles.

The Rose Tree is the brain child of entrepreneur, Olga Rumble, former stressed out corporate employee who ditched the daily London commute to turn back to the power and simplicity of natural botanicals to manage her own skincare woes and stress levels.

Olga said: "I am very excited about bringing our beautifully British organic range to Malaysia and sharing the Rose Tree approach to looking and feeling amazing. The market for organic skin care is booming and the pillars of green credentials, craftsmanship and quality make for real appeal. It used to be that British women wanted Asian products but now it’s becoming the other way around."

All their products are proudly manufactured in Britain and are now available at Metrojaya outlets (
Mid Valley Megamall Kuala Lumpur, The Curve - Selangor and Metrojaya Komtar JBCC – Johor Bahru). For more information, visit
