LA BOUGIE (Perfumery) for Mothers Day
Created entirely by Lucy Hagerty in our West Cork perfumery using prized aromatics and botanical oils from around the world.
“I think taste and smell are quite similar,” she says. The perfume world is a closely guarded one, but she spent 7 years learning its secrets and a further 2 learning how to create the candles herself.
La Bougie launched in the summer of 2012 and is now stocked across Ireland. These artisan products are hand-poured and have a devout following with candle connoisseurs and perfume lovers. Her working life is non-stop, with the launch of new perfumes, custom fragrances for luxurious properties and Hollywood royalty, and introducing La Bougie to exclusive retailers across the US and UK. However, you will often find her working in her Perfumery in Kinsale.
