I learned about Mirins Copenhagen through a Scandinavian magazine based in Copenhagen. When I saw the pictures of the charming little shop, I wanted to go inside and just stay there all day and hear about the products. It seems so peaceful and…herbal.
When Jane Pawiroredjo realised she had an allergy to synthetic fragrance, she started trying to find products that she could use and she actually started making them herself. Mirins Copenhagen was launched in 2012 creating face, bath and body products with only natural fragrance and organic ingredients. The products are preservative-, synthetic additive- and artificial fragrance-free. They’re developed based on Herbalism and Aromatherapy in which Jane is certified. Each item is handcrafted to ensure the highest quality. They also have amazing gift boxes which are packaged in 100% recycled materials.
Jane was really kind to send me a great package with her products to try. Unfortunately, the posts were not so kind and despite the well-packed parcel, there was a destroyed bottle and a bit damaged ones as you can see above.
I’ve mentioned most of the products in different posts because I’ve been using them for several months but I really wanted to focus on the brand and share how passionate Jane is in what she does.
Of course, the first thing that you notice is the packaging. I’m a huge fan of glass jars and bottles although they’re not travel friendly. They just look and feel solid and well made. The rest are metal containers which is great, as well since they really preserve the product inside. They can also be taken with you on a daily basis or on a trip. Examples are the Aromatherapy Calming Body Oil*, I have the smaller size but it contains a pretty good amount of product and the Tea Tree & Lavender Hand Balm* which is my saviour, you can’t believe how dry my hands can get in Norway.
I have two Aromatherapy Perfume Rollers* and they are perfect for when you feel a bit congested or stressed or you just need to perk up.

At Mirins they also make face products and I’m in love with the Facial Clay Mask for Normal Skin* because as I said in the full review here, it’s the perfect combination of purifying and hydrating properties.
Their Facial Serum* was in my March Favourites because it keeps my skin in good condition especially when I travel, it absorbs quickly and the scent is really relaxing.
Last but not least, my all-time favourite skincare product…the queen…rose water. It’s pure rose water but I love the heavy glass spray bottle of Rose Water* by Mirins. The product is perfect for all skin types, it gently cleanses, tones, soothes, refreshes the skin, no doubt, my favourite face toner.
Unfortunately, there are no Norwegian retailers at the moment but it’s possible to purchase Mirins Copenhagen products online at mirins.dk.
