Hi Everyone. I hope you all had a great week. It seems the summer is coming to an end here in Ireland. The autumn chill is definitely beginning to creep in. While it’s always sad to see the end of summer we mustn’t complain as we have probably had our best summer in Ireland for a very long time. Who knows, we may even get some Indian summer September heat! So this week I’m sharing the last of my summer gift guides and it’s dedicated to Irish perfume from the Irish success story that is Fragrances of Ireland.
Fragrances of Ireland began life in 1983 and since then they have been producing the finest toiletries and Irish perfume in a converted farmhouse in Kilmacanogue in county Wicklow. All their fragrances take inspiration from the magical beauty of Ireland’s land and seascapes. They even have their own lavender field and mountain! Here they harvest lavender and other scented plants to create the ingredients for their irresistible collection of Irish perfume and cologne.
Irish Perfume at The Irish Store
1. Inis Cologne
Inis Cologne is still a best seller 10 years after it’s launch. This is the signature fragrance by Fragrances of Ireland and is inspired by the energy and purity of the sea, namely the wild Atlantic of Ireland’s west coast. Notes of citrus, lily of the valley, sandalwood and oak moss, to name but a few, combine to give a cool seductive scent. Beautifully presented in a frosted bottle with a specially sculpted cap by Ateliiers Dinand of Paris, it’s suitable for both men and women. The perfect Irish gift for her or him.
2. Patrick Cologne For Men
So this next one’s for the guys and it’s named after Ireland’s patron saint. Patrick Cologne is inspired by his many journeys across Ireland’s ancient green landscape and dramatic coastal paths. Warm woody tones of oak moss and patchouli combine with fresh green notes of fern and pine to give a rich, distinctly masculine scent. The gift box and bottle display a stunning Celtic motif, inspired by Ireland’s iconic masterpiece, The Book of Kells.
3. Connemara Eau de Toilette
Rose, lily of the valley, ylang-ylang and jasmine come together in perfect harmony to create Connemara Eau de Toilette, inspired by the exceptional beauty and breathtaking majesty of the Connemara region in the west of Ireland. A distinctly floral scent, it comes in a stunning bottle with an emerald green cap and the gift box bears traditional Celtic designs, again inspired by the iconic medieval masterpiece, The Book of Kells
4. Innisfree Perfume
“There midnight’s all a glimmer, and moon a purple glow…”– W.B. Yeats. “The Lake Isle of Innisfree”
Inspired by the famous W.B. Yeats poem, an ode to the magical beauty of the Sligo landscape which he so loved, Innisfree Eau de Parfum delicately blends top notes of Lily of the Valley and lavender with hints of rose, jasmine and iris, to create an unmistakably Irish perfume. Unashamedly romantic, the bottle is heart-shaped and comes with a copy of the poem from which it takes its name.
