Put this Christmas day trip in your diary; Waters + Wild have opened a new location in Glandore.
The certified organic Irish perfume company’s heavenly scents grace the dressing tables of the most discerning fragrance fans in Ireland and abroad, so if it’s an extra special gift you’re after for a certain someone (or yourself), you’ll find it in WILDS – open every day between now and December 24th.
The perfume blends are truly incredible, each one inspired by the pristine beauty of West Cork. There’s Sweet Basil & Bergamot (fresh, peppery basil and spicy citrus Calabrian bergamot, warm cedarwood and wild rose), an exotic, woody Rose & Oud, and a deliciously smooth Cedarwood & Cognac perfume (€120 for the large bottle).
If you prefer to test each fragrance on your skin before committing to one, pick up a sample set of four (these will last for ages in your handbag or travel cosmetics case) for a bargain €25.
And that’s not all; natural beauty fans rave about the Waters + Wild Facial Serum; a blend of organic evening primrose oil and healing essential oils: neroli for well being, lavender for natural antiseptic qualities, frankincense for healing and fennel for purity.
The formula (€79) glides on like liquid silk and absorbs instantly, leaving skin feeling firmer, hydrated and supple.
Drop by the Glandore store and you can also fill your basket with ethical gifts, ambrosial candles, luxe soaps and gorgeous gift boxes for under the tree – all handmade in an ancient stone barn using the age-old traditions of perfume-making with a 21st century twist.
With every precious ingredient sustainably sourced from around the globe and from here on our doorstep in West Cork, Ireland, this is one of few opportunities to shop luxury with 100 percent local roots.
Getting there: You’ll find the new Waters + Wild store opposite The Garden in Glandore, about one hour and twenty minutes from Cork City – head for Clonakilty and look out for signs from there.
