Hedonist is right I am a fan of cloon keen atelier!
I am from Galway Ireland about a half hour drive from the store. I think cloon keen will soon be giving frederic malle a run for his money!
Cloon keen are not doing samples yet. Les scenteurs have samples, but they are not posting internationally right now because of the recent changes to postage restrictions. They have this notice on their site : 'At present, we are unable to fulfill orders to addresses outside of the UK due changes international shipping regulations. We are currently trying to find a courier for non-UK addresses. Please accept our apologies'.
Foustie & I had intended to do a sample share with US basenoters and other basenoters from outside uk & ireland who cannot access samples and then this stupid postal restriction came in. It was always an issue but didn't seem to be enforced until this year. Waiting a bit to see if it resolves itself. Basenoters may have to set up an international fragrances sample smuggling trade
Castana is a modern floral vetiver with tonka, lune de givre is an invigorating angelica fragrance, bataille de fleurs is based around mimosa & terre de l'encens is a iris & peppery citrusy frankincense. They all have their own unique twist though and they are all unisex.
I also LOVE their antique library candle - I have several around the house & I keep begging them to make a perfume version! I've had male & female friends ask me 'where can I buy that candle?'. I can smell the fragrance even without lighting the candle.
