Inis & Bronnley Sampling Event
Stewarts Abbey Garden Centre
Sunday 13th May | From 12pm – 4pm

Inis Bronnley Sample Tasting EventBronnley believe natural ingredients create the purest, most beautiful aromas. Wherever they can be found, they’ll go to any lengths to gather them. When they create a fragrance, they delight in the unexpected and its power to seduce. Founded by English-based, Paris-trained perfumer James Bronnley, they’ve been proudly innovating since 1884.

Inspired by the beauty and energy of the western coast of Ireland (Dog’s Bay, Connemara), the crystalline scent of Inis’ range (the word means ‘island’ in Irish) invigorates and brings a feeling of happiness. An ocean-fresh unisex scent that’s clean and invigorating, Inis instantly refreshes and makes you feel close to the sea – no matter where you are.

Head on over to Stewarts Abbey Garden Centre to explore the ranges yourself!
