Irish Perfumer Nominated for Prestigious International Fragrance Award

Galway perfumer Cloon Keen Atelier's Terre de L’Encens eau de parfum has been shortlisted for a FIFI award

Something smells good in the west…

Galway perfumer Cloon Keen Atelier has shared the happy news that their Terre de L’Encens eau de parfum has been shortlisted for a FIFI award. The FIFI Awards are an international annual event hosted by The Fragrance Foundation who honor creative excellence and achievement in the fragrance industry.

Creative Director of Cloon Keen Altelier Margaret Mangan says, “We are thrilled that Terre de l’Encens has been shortlisted for this amazing honour. We are especially grateful to our amazing perfumer Delphine Thierry for her unparalleled artistry and the staff at Cloon Keen Atelier for their dedicated craftsmanship and hard work.”

Makers describe Terre de L’Encens as “an olfactory impression of the epic journey that stretched from Oman to the Ancient Empires. Through this trading route, nomads carried the most precious frankincense. On its path, civilizations emerged, flourished and then vanished into the desert”. 

The 21st annual FIFI Awards are due to take place on Thursday, 16th May at The Brewery in the City of London where the winners will be announced on the night.

Terre de l’Encens (€71.15) is available in the Arnotts Beauty Hall and the Cloon Keen Atelier Boutique, Galway.
