4 Great Natural Perfumeries

Essential oils and distillers at The Burren Perfumery.

There’s a hint of fall in the air lately, especially in the mornings, and I can’t wait for my favorite season of the year! One thing I tend to change about my beauty routine when cooler weather arrives: I’m more likely to wear fragrance. I’m not sure why, but fall and perfume just seems to work for me. Here are four of my favorite natural and organic perfumers to check out if you’re looking for your new signature scent. Enjoy! —Aleigh

Burren Perfumery. I visited this charming perfumery in Ireland a few years back, and I’m still a fan of their fragrances, which take advantage of the perfumery’s location in The Burren, a region that contains 70% of the country’s wildflower species. To try: Summer Harvest, a great light, floral scent, or Frond, a warmer, more complex scent that blends floral notes with earthy Sandalwood.

Forager. One of my latest Beauty Obsessions, Forager is a new discovery of mine, and I love the simplicity of the each scent (and the gorgeous packaging). These perfumes will look just as good on your vanity as they smell on your wrists. To try: Nectar, a honey/cinnamon/yummy fragrance that has just enough warmth for fall.

Osmia Organics. I’m a fan of this whole product line, but Sarah’s fragrances are interesting and unusual—a great option for people who aren’t typically a fan of perfume or who are looking for something a bit different to add to their fragrance lineup. To try: Juniper Fire, a smoky-sweet scent with notes of cedar, or Trusque, a musky, warm fragrance.

Infusion Organique. Two samples from this company arrived in one of my Goodeboxes, and I’ve been developing quite an attachment to one of the fragrances in particular. To try: Sands of Morocco, a charming, curious mix of lemongrass oil and ylang ylang mixed with sandalwood and oak moss.

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.
