The Burren Perfumery is a nice idea to discover the Burren in an original way. Based in Carron in the county of Clare, this perfumery, like no other, relies on the biodiversity of the Burren to offer 100% natural perfumes and cosmetics. On the program, perfumes, lotions, masks, creams: enough to make yourself beautiful again, while enjoying the benefits of the ecosystem so particular to the region.
If you like natural products and pretty fragrances, then Burren’s perfumery should be the place for you. Here, the family business offers local products as well as more exotic ingredients from around the world. The result is fragrances, soaps and other fine and delicate products, renowned for their quality and organic richness.
Here, the products are eco-responsible, environmentally friendly, and feature wild plants growing on the west coast of Ireland. Algae, plants… Ireland’s natural resources are mobilized to offer luxury cosmetics, renowned throughout the world.
When you enter this small stone house, you quickly let yourself be overwhelmed by the essences. It must be said that inside, everything is just bottles, work in progress and an intoxicating mix of scents and perfumes. One can discover the recent experiments of the perfumery, its new creations…etc.
But beware, this perfumery is not just a simple store where you can buy. Lost in the hills of the Burren, it also offers an exhibition on the biotope of the region, as well as on the manufacturing processes of its own products. Fascinating if you love chemistry, cosmetics and want to discover their every secret!
The staff of the establishment is more than friendly: a smile on their face, and advice on the products best suited to each customer. We enjoy talking with them and discovering their products. Lovers of their region, they are inexhaustible on the endemic species of the Burren, and will be able to explain their virtues for your skin and body. Don’t hesitate to discover their small vegetable garden, installed outside the building: it is there that you will find the most interesting flowers, herbs and plants that make up their perfumes and other lotions!
