AN IRISH STORY
Cloon Keen is a perfumer based in the heart of the medieval city of Galway. For nearly two decades, it has created scents that are deeply entwined with Irish landscape, history, and tradition.
Galway is perched on the western edge of Atlantic Ireland, surrounded by beauty, with the unique landscape of the Burren to the south, the iconic Connemara landscape to the north and the celebrated Galway Bay—guarded by the prehistoric stone forts of the Aran Islands—to the west.
The city’s rich oral, literary, craft and design traditions combine to form an innate aesthetic that translates into a singular cultural identity. This has inspired countless individual and collective creatives to produce beautiful, meaningful work.
Cloon Keen is one of these collectives.
Cloon Keen was founded by two filmmakers. After many years of working in the film industry, they followed their hearts and moved to Galway to start Cloon Keen in a small atelier overlooking Galway Bay.
The Cloon Keen collection, influenced by the founders’ filmmaking background, sets evocative scenes that are both precious and fragile.
