When we packed our bags back up and headed through customs in Dublin, I was plagued with regret over one thing we didn’t get to do in Ireland. I realized many dreams on that trip, like galloping through the mountains of Dingle, climbing the steep steps inside Blarney Castle and re-discovered Steve Earle’s “Galway Girl”, over and over and over…
we I missed out was another dream of mine – a visit to the Burren Perfumery. We were so close, we actually drove for hours around the Burren and found our way via tiny road signs to the little stone house that I just knew housed every magical good-smelling potion on the planet, but parked out front were not one but three large white tour buses. I just couldn’t do it. So we kept on driving, and I’ve been haunted ever since.
The other day, while perusing the Dieline, I came across none other than the packaging design for the Burren Perfumery. THIS DID NOT HELP WITH MY REGRETS.
The design was done by moodley brand identity, a brand firm based in Austria. I’m sure they had a blast traveling to the Burren and learning more about the area and the Perfumery’s products. Talk about a dream job!
From the Dieline – “The Burren Perfumery is clearly a brand that is proud of its heritage, featuring images of the Burren on the labels. Each product has a coordinating dreamy pastel color, eliciting warm and happy emotions. The font is a classic choice that looks almost like it was written by a typewriter, emphasizing the brand’s long history and pride in its tried and true cosmetics production. Overall, the packaging embraces a gentle simplicity which is then reflected in the pure and natural ingredients used to make each item.” Job very well done!
