Irish perfume

Hello everyone. I would like to purchase some perfume that is only made in Ireland during an upcoming trip. Can anyone advise me where to get some or brands to look for? I am planning to be in the southern part of Ireland and will not be in the Northern Ireland region at all at this time.

Hi,

Inis perfume comes from Ireland and sold in many USA retailers such as Hallmark Cards, The Paper Store, and maybe high end gift shops.

I always see it at Hallmark Card stores and The Paper Store. (Good for sampling the testers too.)

If you shop online, QVC also sells it.

I see it sold on Amazon and eBay but I am not sure of the authenticity.

The original Inis perfume is a light scent - can be used by women and men.

Depending on your chemistry, many people say it is very refreshing and has hints of the sea.

They also came out with a couple of additional Inis fragrances, but the ones I see in the local retailers sell the original scent.

Perfume.com also sells it but the only one they have in stock is the Inis 'Or.

If interest to take a look, here is their website too: https://www.inisfragrance.com/

My mother’s favorite perfume is Connemara, which I believe comes from the Wicklow Mountains region.

I am a big fan of Inis (pronounced INISH) since a trip to the QVC studio for their St. Patrick's show about 6 years ago. They gave everyone in the studio audience a solid cologne Inis gift and I was hooked from then on. It is a great scent, very clean and refreshing. While traveling to Ireland two years ago I didn't see it in many places, although the Cliffs of Mohr giftshop had a nice selection. They also have it at the Dublin airport, but as one post said, you can get it in most Hallmark stores, gift shops and believe it or not, Ace hardware stores (at least here in Maryland).

Another Inis fan - I fly AerLingus all the time and always stock up during my connections in Dublin. It's much less expensive there than it is in the few places I've found it in the US.

Big fan of Inis as well. Pretty sure it's unisex... at least I hope it is as I've been nipping away at the bottle in our press for about a year and a half.

Yes irishroadtrip, it is. At least the original scent is which was created and marketed as a "clean, fresh, invigorating scent" replicating the senses of the sea to some. It seems or seemed to be very popular.

I guess over the years they expanded to a more feminine scent or two. I only sampled the original, but for most people, it works with their chemistry.

I cannot attest to it since my signature perfume is normally Armani Si.

If you're ever in County Clare I would highly recommend stopping by the Burren Perfumery. They create perfume from the flowers found in the Burren. They have a wonderful cafe, as well as a garden. It is a lovely experience. You also order their products online.

You may also find some nice options at Avoca. They carry a number of Irish products. Online they do not seem to have perfumes but I am sure that they had them the store.

Enjoy your trip!

Hi C.M. - I’m just seeing this. Yes, definitely stop by the Burren Perfumery. Their perfumes are lovely, and we came away with a generous sample. My sisters and I all found our new favorites! Afterwards take a stroll through their garden.
