A visit to The Burren Perfumery

A beautiful dry rock wall on the way to The Burren Perfumery.

Just after we were married, my husband spent three months working at a gorgeous private club in Ireland. It was a great opportunity, and he had a wonderful time–the only not-so-great part was that I stayed behind in the States. But! I did get to visit him for two weeks, and we had a blast. (And yes, I did spend some time in their lovely spa…)

While exploring The Burren, we stumbled upon The Burren Perfumery. I didn’t know then how hard I would fall for natural and organic beauty products, but I was completely charmed by the little perfumery–and the beauty of The Burren.

Dark bottles keep the precious ingredients protected from damaging sunlight.

The Burren Perfumery grows many of their own ingredients to use in their perfumes, creams, lotions and other products.

I bought their Summer Harvest perfume during our visit–it’s a gorgeous, fresh scent that reminds me of the crisp, cool wind that whips across The Burren, with a hint of sweet clover. It smells just as fresh and crisp today as it did the day I bought it (I’ve been rationing it to help make it last), but now that I know I can purchase another bottle through their web site, I might use it a bit more liberally.
