Growing up on the rugged west coast of Ireland during the 1970s and early 1980s, the haunting lyrics of French singer Michel Sardou’s Les Lacs du Connemara resonated deeply: ‘Burnt earth in the wind, stone moors around the lakes, it's for the living.’ These words that captured this raw, wild landscape so evocatively will stay with me forever.
Below are just a few of my favourites, all made for giving this Christmas - all very beautiful, authentic and the clever folk behind them continue to be as passionate about what they are doing as they are about our precious environment - for me that’s reason enough to buy and return, time and time again. I hope you find something here that will work for a loved one, friend or even yourself…after all you deserve a little gift too!
I'm no perfume expert so for some truly expert advice on what to choose for that special person I sought out the fabulously knowledgeable Maggie Mangan of Cloon Keen Atelier, (my favourite Aladdin's Cave on Galway's Wild Atlantic Way).
Galway in a pot
Cloon Keen Atelier is one of my all time favourite finds. I could wile away the day in this tiny Aladdin's cave.
