A new perfume has landed on shelves, complements of a Cork woman. Arona is an Irish premium solid perfume brand that is made using organic beeswax and pure natural essential oils. 

Youghal-based Nora Irwin is both the founder and creative designer of the new range which come in three modern fragrances of Delicate Rose, Fresh Citrus and Calming Lavender.

Nora has always had a passion for perfumes and went to London to study the arts of fragrances and how they uplift our day.

“As children, my sister and I were surrounded by amazing perfumes as we had a relative who worked as a formulator of perfume in New York,” said Nora who also recalls parcels with perfume being delivered to her home on a regular basis.

That upbringing helped Nora grow up training her nose to differentiate between all the different fragrances. Her passion combined with an interest in nature, commitment to sustainability and eco-friendly products planted a seed of a business idea in Nora’s mind.

“As a working mother with a hectic lifestyle, I had the idea to create a collection of fragrances for the busy woman on the go,” she added. This idea was developed when she was accepted on the EXXCEL Female Entrepreneurial programme in the Rubicon Centre in CIT.
