The Burren Perfumery was founded 35 years ago at the centre of a quiet valley in the heart of the Burren. The Burren is a limestone plateau on the West Coast of Ireland, famous for its wildness and the diversity of its plant life. The flowers of the Burren inspired the original Perfumery fragrances: Man of Aran, Ilaun, Frond and Fraoch. The leading products of the the Burren Perfumery the Burren Botanicals, a range of contemporary floral waters that evoke the scents and moods of being outside at different seasons of the year. They are free from parabens and sodium lauryl sulphate, ingredients that are suspected of being harmful and are present in many of today's perfume products. The Burren Perfumery is in Carron, Co. Clare approximately one hour driving time from Shannon or Galway. Visitors can see a free audio visual on the Burren, view the distillation and soap making areas, visit the herb garden and organic tea rooms and, of course, try out Perfumery fragrances, creams, balms and other products.
