Cloon Keen Perfume - Scent Descriptions
Taking its name from the most handsome, light-filled rooms in Dublin’s Georgian Buildings, Bel Étage is a celebration of another classic from the Age of Enlightenment: the three-hundred-year-old eau de cologne formula.
Bel Étage opens with an effervescent pediment of crisp Italian bergamot, lemon primofiore, and neroli, crowned with a festoon of lavender & rosemary sprigs. The fragrance reveals its complexity through a textured combination of sprawling moss & vetiver suspended in airy musks.

A childhood memory of street-roasted chestnuts in Andalusia.
Castaña opens with a delectable haze of burnt chestnuts laced with a fine trace of golden caramel. It gradually reveals a voluptuous blend of rich Haïtian vetiver, cardamom and red pepper bathed in the delicate floral notes of cassia absolute and lush jasmine blossoms.
A stunning and irresistibly mellow composition.
